I need you to be clingy because I’m paranoid and I begin to think you don’t like me if you’re not.
don’t promise when you’re happy,
don’t reply when you’re angry and
don’t decide when you’re sad
People need to realize that when I push them away, it is not because I do not want them in my life; it is because I want them to push back and to show me that what we have is worth fighting for and they aren’t going to give up that easily.
Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit.
