Time and time again i tried the dating game with guys my age.
I was never asked out on any dates, but it was expected that i drive to THEIR house and be put in a more than awkward situation.
Where was the famous "guy drives to the girls house, picks her up, and meets her parents?" Where's the flowers? The dinner and a movie concept? The stuff a girl spends her day planning for?
Times are changing, and not for the better. Sure, I've given boys a chance. But looking for love is out of the question.
But that advice is easier to say than do. We have this fantasy that our love lives are going to be like Jack and Rose or John or the Notebook. Maybe even the Twilight stars, Edward and Bella. So how do we stop ourselves from looking for love?
But you see ladies and gentlemen, love cannot be found at a college frat party with tons of booze. Love is much more than that and should be treated as such.
We are influenced by the world around us and I hope that all of you reading realize a boy should never be the sole reason for any of your happiness. Life is much more than that.
If you choose to love, love yourself first and foremost. Accept who you are and love yourself for it. And after you do that, love what is inside of you. Because you ARE worth it.
I ask you to realize that love is not a fake or passive thing.
