To the one who got away, from the one who wishes you were still here

I guess all I can really do is just try to take care of myself and move on the best I can because I don't know if I will ever get you back.

To the one who got away, from the one who wishes you were still here


I know it's been a while, but I had a few things I needed to get off of my chest. I won't lie, you have been on my mind. I haven't forgotten about you, that's a fact. I'm sorry things ended the way they did. I wish it could have been better.

I wonder what our life would be like if we had started dating and if circumstances played out better. You really did make me laugh constantly, I definitely fell for your goofy personality. We had similar interests too, but in our own ways that made our relationship special. I could listen to you rave on and on about the things you love.

You were the first person I didn't feel pressure to not be myself around you. I didn't have anxiety with you like I had experienced with other guys in the past, and it was such a nice change. You made me feel beautiful and made sure I knew it even when I felt my worst. You made sure I knew I could talk to you about anything and you would listen. You were there for me no matter what. Until things started to get hard and things between us changed.

I could feel it, I didn't want you to slip away. Not you, you who was so kind to me, so caring. I didn't want to lose that. And I felt like I have.

I appreciate being able to still be in touch with you, but I feel like I can't talk to you when I'm not sure if you want to talk to me. It hurts. Even though I know we both don't want to lose each other completely, it definitely doesn't feel the same. My heart breaks a little every time I see your name, a picture of you, a post you make. Everything hurts because I feel like you don't want me. Or didn't want me.

I don't know what the case is exactly because I haven't gotten in touch with you in a while, but I don't really like how we left things. I know we both tried our best to figure things out, but there are some questions I need to get off my chest. Have you moved on? Was I good enough? Am I good enough for you? Do you still want to talk to me?

I guess all I can really do is just try to take care of myself and move on the best I can because I don't know if I will ever get you back.

From the girl who wishes she could still be with you.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
