To The Boy I Gave My Number To

To The Boy I Gave My Number To

All I wanted was to get to know you.

First, let me start off by saying I do not just give any boy my number and honestly do not even bother talking to many because of this reason. No, I am not asking for cute texts in the morning or cute stuff girls wish guys would send to them all I wanted was to get to know you. I wanted a conversation that consisted outside of work.

I gave you my number because I liked you. I was brave that day when I went up to you and gave you my number. It was definitely outside of my comfort zone. I was afraid that you would not text me and you would just blow me off although, you did end up texting me. You actually texted me, let me just say how shocked I was. From there, it was great. You texted me quite a bit and seemed to care.

Fast forward to a month later and I can barely get you to text me one time in a day. I text you and then I do not get a response until 8 hours later or even the next morning. If this is the case and you have been wondering why I did not text you one day or multiple days in a row, it is because of this reason. I do not have time to sit around and wait for a text from you or wait for you to even talk to me.

It is sad when you cannot even spare two seconds to text someone back, but I guess texting is just too complicated for you? I remember a couple weeks back sitting around wondering what I did and if I did something wrong that you are not answering me but then it dawned on me. It definitely was not me, it was you! I kept trying and pushing to get you to talk but it never worked so I gave up. I am done trying to push something that is not going anywhere. I obviously am not worthy of your time and that's fine because there are plenty more people in this world who would love to give me the time of day.

Now we barely talk anymore and when I text you and you do not text until really late at night when I am sleeping. I wake up to the text message but I do not respond because the conversation is already over. This is what I mean, it is hard to keep a conversation with someone who texts back hours later. The topic has died by then and now we are trying to start a new one that will just end after one text.

This is frustrating, so I think I have learned my lesson on giving boys my number. I am in college and can be busy at times. Now that I am on summer break, will you try to talk to me more? hm, I doubt it but I guess you never know. I am done letting you waste my time so when you actually want to keep a conversation then let me know. For now, I am just going to continue my life.

After 57 Years Of Marriage, My Grandma And Grandpa Are The Real "Relationship Goals"

Their hearts are completely devoted to the Lord our Savior.

Valentine's Day. The National Day of Love (as some might call it) has come and left us so quickly. As many took those twenty-four hours to display their love and affection to their special someone, I utilized it as an opportunity to reflect on all the wonderful relationships that surround me.

I am so grateful to observe several romantic relationships in my life that thus cause my future standards to be set much higher. For instance, my mother and father, brother and sister-in-law, and grandma and grandpa all share romantic relationships that set the standards very high.

However, when I was considering all the people in my life that have built these sort of marriages, I couldn't help but think about the ones who established this all: my grandparents.

As I compose this article, I simply can't stop smiling due to how beautiful their relationship actually is. Therefore, I'm excited to further explain why my grandma and grandpa are the real "relationship goals."

So first off, my grandma and grandpa are two of the sweetest humans that live on this earth. Their hearts are completely devoted to our Lord and Savior Himself. Their relationship has solely been established by God, and as they have grown together as a couple, they have also grown closer to the Lord.

Especially as they are progressing in age, I observe how their religious practices are at the center of their relationship, which is something so many admire.

My grandparents have also taken the sacrificial steps to ensure that each other are both content in the relationship. My grandma always inquires about how my grandpa is doing and if there is anything that she can assist him with. This love is reciprocated when my grandpa asks/does similar things to make sure that my grandma is pleased.

Upon visiting them, I can definitely see that their love is deep and never-ending. They will continue to be there for one another in times of need and when life provides them with high spirits.

Finally, my grandma and grandpa share a relationship that was built off of their strong foundation of friendship. My grandparents met through some mutual friends that allowed for them to get to know one another in a more casual manner. They were able to truly value one another because of their unique attributes and thus build a romantic relationship on top of their friendship.

There are so many relationships that obtain great value in my eyes; however, nothing truly compares to the deep love that my grandma and grandpa share.

Why it’s Okay that Love Isn’t Always Enough


Are you fully invested in a relationship that seems to have some overwhelming negatives? Is it evident that you both love and care for each other? Is it also evident that love doesn't seem to be enough to make this relationship work? Well then this is the right article for you!

We all know have that one relationship that just didn't work out, despite the energy, effort, and love that was invested. The golden question everyone wants to know is: is love enough? What if the answer is no… will you feel hopeless? Here’s why it is completely okay that love is not always enough.

Loving someone else isn't always “enough”, but loving yourself is always enough. Learn to love, learn to grow, and learn to prosper, all on your own. Gain your own love, and you will always bring “enough” to the table.

Loving someone else can be challenging. Eventually it sometimes seems like all of the little reasons why you fell in love turn into the little reasons why your significant other drivers you absolutely crazy.

Remember when you used to get excited to do their laundry? Oh, the gratification of folding your lover’s clothes for the first time, and making them smell like EXTRA amounts of fabric softener. Now when the laundry pile grows into a mountain, a fight arises and you are yelling at the fact that they fail to never do their laundry themselves.

Remember when you actually were more than glad to take out their garbage? Such a strange thing to be happy to do, but such a real thing that takes a relationship to the next level. Now the garbage probably smells and is overwhelmingly stuffed to the max with uneaten leftovers. You feel like you’re always the one to take out the garbage, so you leave it, hoping that your significant other will see and no words will need to be exchanged. But they do not notice and you grow bitter.

These things happen. And although they are little, the little things add up and amount to large, big, ginormous things.

No, love is not enough. To have a working relationship, you need so much more than love. You need care and time. You need effort and energy. You need to learn how to be utterly selfless. You need to be thoughtful, and it is no longer just your feelings that are always being considered, you now have your significant other’s too.

If you really want something to work, if you truly want the complete best relationship, you are going to need much more than love. And that is why it's completely okay that love isn't always enough. It is okay that the boy you were obsessed with and thought you would get your first apartment with just didn't work out. It is okay that the girl down the block who you loved since the 1st grade didn’t want to go to prom with you.

Think of this as reassurance. Remind yourself that you are not the only thing in the world that factors into a successful love story. There are plenty of externalities that fail to be considered, especially after a fresh heartbreak. We would be crazy humans to think that happiness is the soul product of love. Love drives people, but does not create happiness.
