29 Jul What thwarts me the most about the hook-up culture is the excessively nonchalant attitudes we all seem to deal with when it comes to someone we're interested in. Many people believe that playing it cool or not caring is considered attractive, but it's actually quite discouraging. A man I recently met (let's call. 27 Feb I'm not going to ask you for a commitment, and I have zero desire for “more.” We' re still so young and unworldly. We couldn't plan our lives around each other when we don't even know who we are as individuals. I am in love with you. Not in spite of keeping it casual, but as a result of it. Why on earth did this. 15 Jan Isn't it interesting that we use the words "hookup" and "fling" when we're fantasizing about stepping out on our own lover and wield words like "affair" and " cheat" when we're talking about You may be with the wrong guy, since plenty of people who love each other aren't meant to love each other forever.
I am yours and you are mine. I am in love with you. Not in spite of keeping it casual, but as a result of it. Why on earth did this happen? With you, I put up no fronts. You like me freshly out of the shower, all traces of mascara and eyeliner washed away, hair damp and returning to its naturally wavy state.

For some reason, you missed waking up next to me, my wild hair and baggy Ninja Turtle pajama pants included. So now we choose to spend the night together on a regular basis.

Everyone has a laundry list of past relationships and high school sweethearts and summer flings and one-night-stands and mistakes and BIG mistakes. But what good did this do?
What matters is how you treat me: How you are with me is completely unique. Those other girls are insignificant history. We do not live for tomorrow, for what we hope will happen, for the notion that things will be so much better in the future. You and me do not exist on some virtual timeline. Instead, we are happy, we are present, and we are the best we can be today.
Instead, I tell you what you did, you apologize, and we move on. So you drink too much beer, have loud, obnoxious friends, and can devour an entire pizza in one sitting without remorse?
I could go for a nice, cold beer while your uproarious buddies provide free entertainment. And as a matter of fact, I have a few mouthwatering pizza recipes in my cooking repertoire.
That's what I was trying to address in my post about the "marriage gap. And I've never really seen a low-desire partner ignite the way a high-desire partner might want, or a high-desire partner fizzle the way a low-desire partner might want.

In fact, I am a stronger individual knowing that you believe in even my most eccentric aspiration. You are choosing to be with me for a fleeting amount of time because you see that I am worth it.
And that, my dear, is extraordinarily empowering. Every inch of my pale skin, every curve that no treadmill can cure, every imperfection that I cover up with layers of clothing… It has been under your grasping fingers, your longing lips, your sweltering tongue.
Amid the passion and sweat and bareness of our bodies, I am the height of your desire — the only one you want in that intimate moment. And you are mine. If I were to introduce you to someone, I would call you by your name with no qualification of your relationship to me.

It carries connotation of commitment and trust, but is no guarantee against cheating or betrayal. You and me, baby, we have all the trust without the title. What we are is for us to understand, not for those wanting us to fall into some ambiguous category.
After a little flirting, most guys aren't receptive to subtlety. I just walked outside and polled men. I can tell you from experience that I would rather chew on shards of glass than have sex with a woman who is not into it.
No red hearts, no cupid arrows, no cheesy romantic music. And it is this — this unqualified, outright, no-strings-attached dedication to you — that made me fall in love with you. I think everyone has a quote that has ignited something within them — a quote that has stirred their heart and inspired their creativity. A good quote can make me write for hours, I think that is why I find reading so integral when it comes to art.
