Protect your tits.

So, I misunderstood.

That’s how all those edgy rom-com movies start, right? They spew a random statement and then go, ‘Wait, let me start from the beginning’. So, I’m doing that here. 

Modern romance is so fucking complicated, man. You can’t exactly tell someone you like them without it being totally awkward or weird. It’s never as simple as boy meets girl. It’s more of a minefield filled with what ifs, misunderstanding, miscommunication, ego, heartbreak and maybe, just maybe you might land on a safe spot. But then you’ll have to move again, won’t you? This minefield opens to an actual beautiful field in some cases, however not all of us are that fortunate. Usually it’s just an endless stretch of spilt blood and pain.

Imagine you tell someone to their face that you have a crush on them after getting to know them for a week, you don’t really expect anything in return, you just wanted to get it off of your chest. But you’re nervous and it kind of comes out in a rush, the person just smiles and kindly makes fun of the way you said it, not stating it out loud that they don’t feel the same way, but to you it’s clear from their body language and the way they speak. Your heart clutches painfully, but you’ve just met them and you’ll be okay, at least there wasn’t any false hope.

 Now, if the same situation had happened on a text and the person just repeated what you said just to make the conversation light but you can’t see their face or their reaction and you end up thinking that they just admitted to have liking you back and you obsess over them for months not understanding why they don’t seem as excited to talk to you as you’re when they said they did like you back. And when you do get to know the truth one day, it feels like a cosmic joke like the universe just pulled the rug out from underneath your feet because why not? After all, isn’t life just a series of massive punches to your tits?
