“When you are your own best friend, you don’t endlessly seek out relationships, friendships, and validation from the wrong sources because you realize that the only approval and validation you need is your own.”—Mandy Hale, The Single Woman (via larmoyante)
“Purposely taking long to respond to texts, waiting an extra day to return calls, being nonchalant and whatever about spending time together – these things will only fill the other person with doubt. Then, even if it doesn’t work out, regardless of the relaxed front you’ve put on you’ll still feel incredibly crappy inside. If you’re going to put your precious heart at risk, don’t keep it covered in protective plastic and Styrofoam.”—
What would I do without your smart mouth? Drawing me in and you kicking me out. You’ve got my head spinning. No kidding, I can’t pin you down.
What’s going on in that beautiful mind? I’m on your magical mystery ride. And I’m so dizzy. Don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright.

I’m not one to mess around and my standards are pretty high and won’t be lowered for anyone, but honestly, I’m just starting to give less fucks just because I know I will never be this single and independent ever again.
“While evolutionary psychology suggests that women pass on casual sex due to an inherent lack of sexual desire, Conley says there’s an entirely different reason. She posits that women say “thanks, but no thanks” for fear of being judged. She also says that women have serious reservations about whether a one-night stand would be enjoyable with a new partner. She tries to explain to men, “The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward.” Also, “A lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.” Preach.”—
