To All The Girls I Loved Before, You Inspire Me

To All The Girls I Loved Before, You Inspire Me

There are so many crushes throughout my life that I have lost track but each of you plays an important role in my life.


A few weeks ago I watched the Netflix film "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" and it has still been on my mind. The premise of the film is a girl writes letters to all the boys she has ever loved and keeps them in a box. When the letters are mailed out she has to start a fake relationship with one of the boys she liked in order to hide her true feelings from someone else. While this movie may seem a little sappy and like most teen love movies it made me think. My whole life I have never really known what love is or who I have truly been in love with. Have you ever thought someone is so amazing and when your friend points out one thing that is all you can think about? I felt I haven't been in love but have been in love with the idea of something. However, there are a few girls I have loved and I feel I owe it to them for making me the man I am today.

Dear all my past crushes,

There are so many crushes throughout my life that I have lost track but each of you plays an important role in my life. Everyone has been rejected or friend zoned and I feel I can state how that event has helped me look ahead. There are so many girls I have liked who I still am friends with and staying friends with them were one of the hardest things. At times I felt the guy you were dating didn't deserve you but I had to sit back and make my own life. No matter when I liked you or for how long you taught me that not everybody is worth your time and love can't be forced.

When I was in high school I thought I had a crush on a girl but after a while, I had to realize I was only crushing on the idea of her. The more time I spent with her the more I realized she wasn't for me and I had to move on. In college, there are so many girls I have thought I loved but realized love is something that is mutual. No this is not an article saying I am looking for a girlfriend but a way to tell other people that you know when you fall in love.

In high school, I lacked confidence at times and thought I wasn't made for anyone. Dating is trial and error and while being rejected can sting it can set you up for that magic moment. When I got to college I was convinced that one girl was the one for me but it took my family and friends to make me realize that might not have been the case.

Crushes come and go and to be honest I don't remember most of my crushes. I thought I might have been in love with you but maybe I was just in love with the idea that I could be with someone.

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
