Love makes the world go round – and whether we like it or not – rules the better part of our youth! So, whether we are crushing on someone, pining after someone, nursing a breakup, falling in love, planning to get married or staying away from love – we are all pretty much obsessing over it, this way or that. The only difference is how we react to things as we grow older. Though we have to admit, no matter how old we become, when it comes to matters concerning love…dil toh baccha hai ji! 🙂
That heady rush, the butterflies, the talking to literally *all* your friends about it! *Sigh* Young love!
Cynicism, backed by “research” on the guy, coupled with trying to find out if he’s single (because 9 out of 10 times, they aren’t). Oh, and how could we forget – prayers that he shouldn’t be much younger than us!
Why doesn’t he like me? This is so unfair! I hate you, life! I’m grumpy and I need my time to wallow.
I’m going to move on, but my heart literally hurts. Going to keep smiling for the world, though. Isn’t that what adulthood is all about?
The world seems to have ended. You even make promises to never love again, because it hurts too bad! You roll your eyes at couples who are madly in love and promise yourself you never want to date anyone – ever!
Sure, it hurts, and of course, it sucks! But it isn’t your first breakup. So, you already know that as bad as things seem right now, they will get better! Having said that, the fear looms large – will you ever find love again?
OMG! This is so exciting! We could talk/text all day long and it just does not get boring!
I like this guy, but if he’s into me…he better move things up a notch! I can’t just keep flirting all my life, you know.
What an a******! He really thinks I want to be friends after everything that’s happened?
How sweet and mature of him! I really think we could be friends, after all.
Umm, okay, I guess we are a thing then! *Doing my happy dance*
Whoa, baby – that was awesome! Now can he please wake up and get out? I have to get ready and leave for work!
You think about it, analyse if you’re attracted to him and eventually decide you should give it a shot!
Is he nuts? You guys have been through too much to throw it away because of one drunken night! Err, thanks, but no thanks?
Thorough post-mortem underway! You and your bestie plan a stay over, basically discuss every little detail of your love lives for hours on end, cry, hug and come to no particular conclusion – aside from the fact that boys suck and you both hate life!
Of course, you and the bestie still need to evaluate every tiny detail, much like you have always done. But sadly your analysis can’t be as detailed and thorough as before! So basically you two exchange texts while at work about your love problems, and pat come the succinct-yet-effective replies: “He sucks! You deserve better, my love!”
