while we’re at this “i want a gf/bf” trend, i’d like to say that it’s important to remember to please not mistake your need to fulfill years of loneliness and neglected love for a real desire to be in a relationship.
it’s risky not only for your partner to be with someone who wants them to compensate all the love they didn’t have, but it’s absolutely dangerous for you to jump into any opportunity to date and to be given affection, because you might end up dating people who will not only take advantage of you, but might hurt you as well.
having a partner and sharing affection is an amazing experience, but it’s something that takes work, time and maturity. sometimes, you’re just not ready for it yet - but that doesn’t mean you’ll never be. take a deep breath: love will come to you just in time!
