If I’d be a guy, and I’d meet this girl, that I am, I would not let her get away because I would be afraid that there’s only one of her in the world. And right now, she is sitting next to you, and you are letting her go, and that alone opened my eyes to how different we are and how different you are from what I need and what I’m looking for.
If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart.
