To The Guy Who I Thought May Be The One

It's crazy to think that someone can change how he feels in a day.

To The Guy Who I Thought May Be The One

There are so many things I want to tell you, and I know to talk about it in person can be easier, but I've tried.

It just wasn't enough. I tried to see your side of things, but the more I look into it, the more it makes me feel like maybe this was just a game. One of my biggest questions is: How did we get here?

Things seemed to be moving forward and it was moving quickly. It's funny how you used to say you wanted me from the moment you saw me but were too scared to talk to me and asked co-workers about me. It was super cute. It still makes me smile.

You used to ask me how I noticed you and I always just said a blunt answer. I saw you delivering a package up at the front once and started to ask around about you as well. I go back and forth in my mind if I regret giving you my number that night when we started talking. My answer is yes and no. Yes because where we are now is not good and it breaks my heart. But at the same time, no because everything happens for a reason and even though it's not how I wanted it to end, I know there's a reason for it. (Even if I don't agree with it).

We started out as I don't even know what and we moved so fast. Yes, sometimes it's bad to do that, but sometimes there's a reason for it, and with us, it just felt like everything was right. I'm not sure and I can't seem to place my finger on it, but you just had everything I wanted in a person and I hoped you felt the same way too. It seemed impossible for there to be only friendship in our cards after the way we connected. You made me feel things in such a short amount of time that I've never felt before with anyone else.

A conversation with you felt like it would last forever. You had this way of always knowing how to calm me down when I was upset or just how to put a smile on my face. Even when I was annoyed with you I couldn't be for too long because you found a way to just make me giggle again. I always wanted to be with you, and when we were apart, I counted down the minutes until the next time we were together. I never wanted this to end, but sadly, all good things come to an end, I guess.

You started sending me short answers or not talking to me as much. We had a few fights and shit - all relationships have those. I know I did somethings that make you wonder if I was telling the truth or why I was saying stupid things. I'm human. I have flaws and say things that I don't mean from time to time. I have never lied to you, though.

I may have not told you the full reason why I didn't take the job, but that's because of you. I wanted to see where things went with us. It's crazy to think that knowing someone for such a short time could make such an impact me. Some people may think that's crazy, but hey, that's what happens when you care about someone so much.

The ideas conjured in my head of what we could have been are now just a fantasy. Deep down, I think I always knew you would never feel the way I felt about you, but I was hoping it could be. I wanted you to want me more than anything. The more we talked, the stronger my feelings grew. The way I felt about you just wasn't enough. Nothing I did ever made a difference. I cried over you, which was a big deal. Knowing you would never see me the way I see you hurt. It sucks knowing you still matter to me, yet you don't feel the same.

Do you know how exhausting it is to constantly overthink the simplest of things? You had me stay at your place countless times and called me babe and said I was the only girl you wanted. You let me meet your daughter, which I knew you never did with anyone else. I fell for her as well. She had so many things about her that reminded me of you. I may have met her one time, but the way you looked when she was there made me fall for you even more.

You called me babe and took care of me in a way no one else has before. The worst part is I don't blame you, even though I wish I could. From the start, you said we should just be friends, but that didn't stop you from doing things that made me feel the way that I do. It drives me crazy knowing I became "that girl" who fell for the guy who wanted to be "just friends." It might have not been the same for you, but the time we shared made me glow. I dream of the day when I no longer get butterflies from just hearing your name. I don't want to be held down by what will never be.

I hope you can understand that no, I don't want to be just your friend. I want more, but at the same time, I just want it all to stop. You don't get to act like everything is cool between us and just think that I'll be okay having the feelings that I do. I'm tired of feeling like maybe something will change when I know it never will. I hope one day you will find someone who you care about like I care about you. And for your sanity, I wish that she feels the same way back.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
