    I hate when you're trying to tell someone you

    have a crush on them and they don't get the hint.

    I never felt so old. Last night I was working

    as a bouncer. All I had to do was sit there and check IDs. All of a sudden I realized I was the oldest one there. I can remember not that long ago being the youngest person in the bar.

    I was a 5th grader and did not wear the latest

    fashion, did not have stylish hair, my parents just couldn't afford the stuff with the labels for me, and what they could afford, I just didn't have the style sense to know what worked together. But I was still a pretty awesome kid. I inserted myself into a group of girls...

    I for one am likely to respond ambiguously to

    something without considering it first = engage brain before mouth. Friends know me a dare not offended. If I do to you, it'll not be meant to hurt you as I am consciously tactile. Just to show how words can be misunderstood. But if yours was meant, I can take it as I'm thickset...

    I love being cute with my girlfriend

    but I don't think she likes it. Which is really annoying me because I want to express myself to her and she seems a bit embarrassed when I do/ say sweet things with her. Am I in the wrong?

    When I say I love you

    and you say " okay.. Bye". That hurts. If you were just another boy Id blow it off but your my Son, that's impossible.

    Feel like to many people are afraid to hurt my

    feelings. I'd rather someone be honest and hurt than lie to me and feel better. So when I feel like they are hinting something I run.

    I was taught that it is always a plus to "know

    when to leave." I am very intuitive by nature anyways...but Ive almost perfected reading little clues by [host, boyfriend, party atmosphere,] that the time to go is now. We all have that one friend who stays wayyyyyy past GO time. I am proud to say....I will never be that friend...

    But when you read all my texts,

    you never answer. Who else could you be talking to when you say I'm the only one. But for how long? I'm not sympathetic to the distance keeping you from me. Maybe it's for the better. You know I'm upset, you know all this silence is going to be the death of me. I don't think you...

    ...Yes, I can read between the lines,

    understand subtexts, and non-verbal communication. I already know what you think about me, before you open your mouth and try to pretend to be an ally or friend. You do have potential in politics, though.

    Especially in person,

    it's a lot easier for me due to the help of body language. But through message or text, it kinda takes me awhile to figure it out but eventually, I can take a hint. With over hundreds of repetition, you can say I pretty much mastered it.

    I know it's over now,

    I just needed time to understand that. I still love you with all my heart but it's clear to me now, that you don't feel the same. I may have not have been able to accept this before but now I'm ready, Im ready to let go, no matter how much it hurts.
