Why have you never seen a hippopotamus hiding in a tree?
Because they’re really good at it.:) #dumbestjokeiveheardallday #lol
I was thinking about the dreaded ‘F’ word today. You know, Feelings. Why are some of us so guarded when it comes to letting people in? I’ve never been that way, personally. I don’t see the point in hiding my emotions. Yes, I get hurt. Yes, it really blows. But in the end, I know I left with all my chips on the table. Its so much more satisfying knowing you didn’t hold back. I’ve been told its a dangerous game I play, but the fact is, I’m not playing. I’m up front, honest(to the point of ridiculousness), and I like it that way. I realize this scares the absolute shit out of some people, but I refuse to change. When you get scared to let anyone in, you might miss the opportunity to let the RIGHT one in. Isn’t that just horrible? I think so. I may be young and naive(I’m a 20 year old hopeless romantic), but I’ll never be accused of being a coward. Okay, so I fall wayyyyyy too fast, way too hard… But that’s the best part! Love is an amazing thing to experience. The way you feel when you’re in love is the most euphoric feeling. Good luck convincing me otherwise. Pain is a part of it, but it’s so worth it. You can never experience true bliss without taking some kind of a risk. Yes, love is dangerous, but isn’t everything worth getting? I like to think of love as a tattoo. It’s painful sometimes, but the end result is beautiful and forever. I also don’t understand why people intentionally hurt others. For instance, I’ve been with guys who act like I’m a fucking princess. They treat me like I am an angel sent from God himself, just to disappear a month later. Keep in mind, I’m not clingy. I give space when its asked for, and I would literally do anything for someone I have real feelings for. I respect myself, and am far from promiscuous. To all of my guy friends, I would be the perfect girlfriend(except no actual attraction has ever occurred by either party). I’m not a ‘friend zoner’. So, before anyone comes to that conclusion, I add, I have tried with a few, but it always resulted in the better-off-as-friends verdict. I’m just a blunt, decent human being. I’m not begging for a relationship by any means. I’m perfectly happy by myself, and will continue to be until I find a guy that I connect with. I just have to ask, WHY THE FUCK DO PEOPLE LEAD OTHERS ON?! If its not going anywhere, let him/her know. Don’t try to sugar coat it. Don’t beat around the bush. For God’s sake, just tell the truth. If all you want is a one night stand, don’t even bother getting the digits. Just be up front. And stop letting past relationships ruin new ones. That poor guy/girl is NOT your ex. I repeat, they are NOT YOUR EX. Don’t expect them to hurt you because she/he did. Give them a damn chance. Trust them. Maybe they’ll hurt you. But then again, maybe they won’t. But if you don’t give them the chance, you’ll never find out. That person you dumped because they didn’t text you for an hour could’ve been your soulmate, and you just threw them away like yesterday’s newspaper. Maybe they were just fucking busy! Ever think maybe they were taking a monster shit, and feel awkward doing so while talking on the phone? Anyways, I digress. The point is, stop hiding your feelings. If you’re gonna love, don’t hold back. And just be honest. It’ll be hard, but its a lot better than ending up spending every day with your 7 cats named after your favorite soap opera stars, eating a gallon of Ben and Jerry mixed with your tears.
