“There’s that word again. Need. I need you. I need you to need me. How nauseating, to need another human being, as if their heart is in your throat. Love isn’t about need. Don’t romanticize the notion of desperation. Let me let you in on a secret: you don’t need me and I don’t need you. We can get through life just fine without each other. Love is not wanting to. We want each other, we want skin and hands and all our daily scars. We want intoxication and art museums and intertwined limbs. We want ferocity in our lips and tracing slow, small circles on our stomachs. I don’t need you in my life, but goddamn I want you in it.”—All the Want in the World Cannot Fit in Our Hands (via queer-lust)
my father told me once to never date anyone who talks smoothly around you from the start because if someone likes you they should be a little nervous and honestly i think that’s some of the best advice anyone has ever given me
I love everything you said to that boats and brew guy. He clearly has no idea the issues that women deal with today.
Thank you so much! It means a lot to me to hear y’all’s feedback, and I absolutely agree. It is the type of ignorance and prejudice that he displays that is part of the reason why feminism is still necessary today
