The brave one though. Omg. Love love love. She looks perfect.
"I am taking lessons on how to be unselfish in love: I will pick up your call at 4AM when I am hungover because you are sad and because I love you. I will ring you when you’re hurting. I will knock on your door when you’re hurting. I will bring crispy rolls and a carton of ice cream and honey whiskey. When I talk to people about you I will be as proud as my mother the day I was born. I will point and say “yes, that’s the one. Look at him. Isn’t he the damned best thing.” When you’re wrong I’m going to tell you so. I’ll love you even after we fight. I’ll love you even when you stop talking to me. I’ll love you after the fifth break up and the twentieth time you’ve taken food from my plate. There’s chocolate cake in the fridge and even though I really want it it’s yours. Yes, I’ll drive three hours to see you for one. Yes, I’ll kiss the spot on your stomach that tickles the most. You’ll find notes tucked every place you look. Sometimes I’ll fail and they’ll say mean things like ‘sod off, you wanker’ but most of the time, probably, they’ll say ‘hey I’m waiting for you to come back and kiss me.’ "
"I just want someone who won’t get annoyed when I text them six times or in all caps. Someone I can go on long drives with and can sing along to the radio with. Someone I can eat pizza with at 2am and kiss at 6pm. Someone who chooses me everyday and never thinks twice about it. "
"The trouble is that, for women, being “nice” often translates into putting up with things we should never put up with. How many times has some creep sat uncomfortably close to me on the bus and stared me down, yet I’m too afraid to just get up and move, lest I offend him?
We smile when we’re harassed on the street or hit on by jerks. We laugh at sexist jokes. We learn that when we have strong opinions, we’ll be called bitches and that if we get angry, we’ll be called hysterical. When we say what we want, we’re called pushy or aggressive.
Part of learning “ladylike” behavior is about learning to smile politely when someone is being crude. Femininity has long been attached to passivity and to being docile. Men fight, women giggle and fume silently. "
