"There’s always one person who opens your mind to what a real relationship is supposed to be…and after that, you can’t go back to taking everyone’s word when they say they care about you. You look for the real clues. People who haven’t experienced it can smell it off you. They become afraid of you. They can’t fool you, and they can’t fool themselves when you’re around. There are some times, very rare, when you’ll wish you had that giddy, trusting feeling. But for the most part, you’ll be so grateful for the time you save…the feelings you save…you stop guessing. Then one day you catch yourself pointing out things that seem obvious to you but not to someone else…and then you’re that person. You’re the person ripping off their rose-colored glasses. They will hate you, just a little bit, but once they see it, they can’t deny that it’s the truth."
"You took too damn long. What, did you think I was going to wait around while you went on a journey of self-discovery? While you traveled, fucked everything in sight, took the liberty of being a whole human being, and eventually came back around to apologizing to me? Did you expect me to have a cake ready when you came back? Go fuck yourself."
