Everything so highly criticised of men these days, he will show a middle finger to and do it for his lady. Nothing’s too gay or too moist, for him to do for her. Those tumblr quotes and retweets bishes want, “a guy like this” “a guy that does this”, he does it. He’s cute like that, and he makes it cool to be.
He’s not the mouthy show offs, he’s quiet but when he lets you in as a friend or more, he will talk your ear off about the most random things, from trivial minor subjects that you both will laugh over, in the speed of light which makes it all the more funnier. Like where does he come up with this shit?! And then just as quick, he’ll tell you about something he’s learned. And you’ll not have thought of it that way before. He’ll tell you his dreams and how he looks at things and it is so deep. Deeper than you’d think a guy would bother sparing minutes thinking about. He’ll tell you how he perceives, understands and accepts people, what he wants for the future, the legacy he wants to leave behind. You’d be inspired or find yourself thinking I want to see beneath the surface, I want to see through his eyes. You’ll never be bored talking to him. How can you be bored of laughing forever, learning forever?

You’ll say things in passing, things you forgot you dropped in conversation and he’ll remember it. If he has let you in, it’s the best pedestal you could be on… Because he wants to learn every little thing about you. From what makes you angry to what tiny forgettable thing makes you smirk. He remembers all the little things that make you you, being with him is effortless because he does the hard work so you don’t ever feel the stigma of how hard it can be to make it ever lasting, he meets you 90% of the way. He wants to make the person that makes him smile, smile. He’ll study you and learn all your little quirks, habits, moods, mentions.. Life is all about the little things not the grand gestures that people can do without even having to pay attention to that special person. You can google “what girls like” and buy it. But he’ll do things money can’t buy, the things that you’ll find yourself comparing everyone else to.. If you know someone that well.. Down to their iddy biddy likes and dislikes… Then you know he knows you, accepts you, wants it all.

He has a weakness, but ironically it’s his best strength; he helps. He wants to help. He can’t turn away if you need help. Anyway he can he will go out of his way to motivate you. Do you know how hard it is to find someone that is bothered to listen to your problems instead of waiting until you’re done so they could speak? He listens and he speaks. Real advice. Not generic bullshit. And he will have all day for you. He’s devoted and dedicated, and if you’re in trouble or feeling demotivated he’s going to spew to you until you feel invincible. He’ll lift you up with his words, make you feel like everything is straightforward and easy to handle. He’ll make you grow, he’ll teach you new ways to handle old problems..

He’s old school, and old school is the best school. He doesn’t need the attention of many to build one thing. He will do that old thing of long telephone conversations, keeping in touch, harvesting all the things he learns and you learn about each other and he’ll do it nice and slowly, he’ll do it over time. Like the movies, like back in the day before everything became instant, before people felt they always had a billion options if someone wasn’t fitting their “social-media-made” ideals… Back when people set their eye on someone not so perfect, accepted that, saw their decent heart and spent time with them, to feel for them, to become close and have eyes and ears for just you. He does it like that. So you know it’s real. It’s grown. It’s deep. It’s not a list of common likes-dislikes, flirting and bang. He takes the time. Because he wants to hear your voice, he wants to know what you’re thinking, he wants to hear your plans and combine them both. He takes that time to grow it into something long term, something to get attached to. Something worth remembering and holding on to. Girls get flack for wanting consistent attention, why? How else do you grow something for keeps? He isn’t afraid of investing, for gambling, for taking the risk on someone, he loves to love and feels so intensely. When he’s opened his heart and mind to you, he puts 150% in. He becomes consumed by you.

He’s a simple guy; it’s funny, how guys these days have become as fussy, picky and high maintenance as the girls these days. All he cares about is if she’s down for him, if she can sit back and laugh with him about stupid stuff, if she’ll understand the weird and wonderful way he is, and love it.

This guy is an original; he will make you feel so comfortable in your skin and being and IMPROVE your attitude. So young yet so wise. Yeah, he does his thing, but still well rounded enough to still have core family values, looks after those that should be most important in life no matter what his lifestyle’s saying.

His mind is so open you could tell him anything, you could BE anything, and instead of feeling lawless, you feel like you wanna better yourself after a conversation with him.

my weakness?

i’m very attuned to all the suffering around me. As a result of being unable to block out other people’s suffering, i am extremely empathetic and altruistic towards other people’s emotions; this explains my desire to make huge sacrifices to help others – i am more concerned with other people’s welfare than my own.


1. When your friends ask you to hangout, and you don’t feel like it, don’t go. Don’t ever do things halfway or do something that makes you uncomfortable. With everything, give all of yourself, even the pieces you never knew existed.

2. It is okay to not know. Everyone always despises the phrase, “I don’t know” but no one tells you that it is okay to not know. The becoming is more important than the being, anyways.

3. If someone ever makes you feel less, in any way, you have every right to walk away. You have every right to cut out toxic people in your life. To close the door on people who make you feel bad about who you are or what you stand for. Friends don’t tear down, they build up.

4. Loss is always going to happen. Just like paint will always chip and rain will always fall, loss will always be part of life. No matter how much I don’t like it, or avoid it, it is going to walk my way at several times in my life. Learn to embrace it and learn to get closure.

5. Give yourself a chance. Stop saying, “I don’t think I can” or “But what if I am not able to?” and give yourself a chance. This may be cliche, but try to believe in yourself. When you get older, your knees won’t work the same and you won’t have the best memory, and you are going to wish you’d given yourself a chance years sooner.

6. Fall in love. Don’t be guarded before you fall in love. You could fall in love three times and still not find the right one, but none of it is going to make “the one” matter less. Don’t fall into that idea that your first love has to be your best love. Fall in love as many times as it naturally happens.

7. Firsts are going to be messy. First loves, first kisses, first dates, first failed tests, first college class, first time you drive a car, first time you ride a plane - first times were made to be imperfect. Just because it’s messy and all over the place, doesn’t mean it can’t be good or worthwhile.

8. You want another scoop of ice-cream? Go get it. Get three more scoops of ice-cream if that is what you want. “Fat” is not the opposite of beautiful and it is not the opposite of happy. Don’t let anyone tell you that your body type isn’t beautiful. Beauty is a social construct, create your own, become your own.

9. Let yourself be alone. Loneliness is not a bad thing. It is healthy and normal. Everyone needs to spend a good portion of their life alone. We learn who we are when we are alone; life is less crowded and more clear when we are alone.

10. If you aren’t happy where you are, change it. Quit your job, move, become a vegetarian, get a new hobby, pick up an old hobby, whatever you do - make sure it benefits you. Life is too short to not be alive, to not be passionate, and overflowing.
