365 Days Later And You're Irrelevant, Now I Know Time Does Heal All Wounds

Exactly one year later, and I wish that day, 365 days ago, never would have happen.


One year. 365 days.

365 days since I first laid eyes on you. You were silent; you didn't say much as you walked into my dirty room. You didn't even introduce yourself. You didn't need to. When I saw you, I knew. I wanted that cute boy with the handsome smirk to be mine, all mine.

You swept me off my feet. You had me mesmerized. We clicked instantly, yet we took it slow, or so we thought. We fell hard and fast. I had finally found love once again, and I was fully consumed.

We waited two months to make it official; it felt like the longest two months ever. And after only a week of dating, it felt like the worst week ever.

Five days into dating and something was already my fault. I drove fours hours to see you but because you were too busy with your friends, it was my fault you didn't get to see me. The war, the fighting, and the mental anguish were only just beginning.

If only I knew then, what I know now.

I was in love. And when you're in love, there's no such thing as red flags. Sure, I didn't like a lot of the ways you treated me, but I still tried to change what I could to make it better for you. I loved you. I wanted to be what you wanted. You loved me.... right?

No, you didn't love me. That's not love. If only I knew then what I know now.

365 days later.

I'm laying in bed, holding the hand of a man as he kisses my forehead.

A man who doesn't tell me I can't hang out with my guy friends, but encourages that I do. A man who knows that having time alone, without all our friends around, is important in a relationship, and that alone time doesn't have to consist of sex. A man who doesn't respond once a day and then blames me for the disconnect.

A man who doesn't find fault in me for things that aren't my fault.

Exactly one year later, and I wish that day, 365 days ago, never would have happen.

5 Things To Know Before Dating A Bowler

These are some helpful tips!


Monday 11/26 .... Before you jump into a relationship with a bowler, these are some things you need to know!

1. Most of their time is spent bowling...don't take that personally:

Just because they spend a lot of the time bowling, it doesn't mean they care about you any less, because trust me they still care about you, it's just bowling has been in their lives a little longer!

2. They will spend all their free time bowling..

They will spend all their free time bowling because they think they always need to practice to improve the way they are bowling or they need to improve their average!

3. You will more than likely start to enjoy bowling more:

And by enjoying bowling more, I mean you will have to go and watch him or her bowl just to be able to spend time with them...witch then you will probably end up enjoying the sport so much you will want to start up yourself!

4. They as many bowling balls as you do pairs of shoes if not more..

I am not over exaggerating I am being serious...this could be a problem!

5. Your first date will probably be bowling:

I mean hey..bowling is fun, and it shouldn't matter as long as you are spending time with that person, showing them you care about something they love to do!

I know it might seem like they only care about bowling and you just are getting mad about it..but don't! Think of it this way, they are 9/10 times at the bowling alley so you don't have to worry them off with some other girl or something! So just look at the positive side of things!
