it broke my heart into more pieces than my heart was made of. why can’t people say what they mean at the time?"

FIRST KISS: we asked twenty strangers to kiss for the first time.
"what’s your name again?"
two months into our relationship you once asked me how much i loved you and i just said, “from here”. you didn’t get it and you got mad and thought i was playing around. breaking up after almost two years together, i sent you a message six months later saying “to here”. you still didn’t get it."

Hey dom you usually give stellar advice so hello um my friends dad just died and she's been through so much crap in her life ok and just what do I say I feel so useless right now what the hell am I supposed to do
ahhhh i don’t think you can say anything, unfortunately :( that’s a huge thing that your friend is going through & i think that you just need to be there for her when she needs a shoulder to cry on, & that’s it. i have a friend who lost her mother a few years ago & even now, it’s not something that i can really talk about with her without having her completely break down in tears. it’s happened so many times & it’s COMPLETELY understandable. i’m not gonna tell her it’ll all be okay because i don’t know if it will…& i don’t know what it’s like to lose a parent. i mean, i know it’s gotten better for her,but i don’t know if it’s ever gonna be ‘okay’. there are always gonna be moments where she wants her mother there but her mother is gone and it’s so sad that there’s nothing i can do about that. :( i guess just be there when she wants to talk about it…i wish i had more to say, but it’s a tricky thing. lots of love ♡♡
i loved you so much once. i did. more than anything in the whole wide world. imagine that. what a laugh that is now. can you believe it? we were so intimate once upon a time i can’t believe it now. the memory of being that intimate with somebody. we were so intimate i could puke. i can’t imagine ever being that intimate with somebody else. i haven’t been."

tho i long for the actual sunlight contact between us, i miss you like a home. shine back honey & think of me."

NOOO, STOP THAT. YOU’RE TOO SWEET. (thank you, i adore you.)
everyone wants someone to turn to them and say, ‘you are disgusting, but enchanting. you are not a freak. you are a beautiful sack of shit and i will love you in spite of everything.’ everyone wants to feel connected."

sometimes you tell someone to never call you again, and then the phone rings and you hope it’s them. it’s the most twisted logic of all time."

vladimirnabokovs replied to your post “hi dom! could you recommend some movies? spring break is coming up…
ugh another earth is such a fantastic movie omg

you will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. when all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win."
