Already have guy who loves me

by TheatreGeek on February 10, 2017   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

In school and society in general there's often a lot of pressure to date so you can "fit in". I know my friends have certainly been trying to get me a boyfriend and I see everywhere all these happy couples and can't help but feel a little left out. Then one day, I was shut up in my room looking at a crush's instagram page and wondering if he could possible like me back. My dad called me down to invite me to watch one of his favorite movies with him, and I answered back saying that I would be just a few more minutes. My eyes wandered back to the phone in my hand, and then I realized that I don't need a guy to love me. I already have one.
