I try and live my life realistically when dealing with love. I recently hear a quote that really fully describes my feelings toward love. “Look in my opinion the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, pretty, handsome, what-have-you. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with,”- Juno. The quote sums up exactly how I feel about love.
I am a normal 16 year old girl. I go to high, I have great friends, and I even have a boyfriend. Now my boyfriend and I are down to earth kind of people. We have been together for a year and eight months and yes we do say I love you to each other. We both no we are to young to really know what love is. We always keep in mind that we are teenagers and most teens relationships don’t last and it’s all nothing but puppy love. Knowing that we may not last, we still joking talk about what it would be like to live together, or us getting married silly stuff like that. Every time we hear one of our friends say their relationship is going to last forever. We can’t help but laugh and shake our heads. Then two weeks later the relationship is no more. My boyfriend and I are so laid back sometimes we don’t even know if we are fighting or not. If I’m in a bad mood and being snappy toward him, he lets it go and understands that sometime people just need to yell. I do the some for him.
I’m a girl who does not like to wear make-up. He is perfectly fine with that. If he didn’t like me for me I don’t think this relationship would work at all. I’m girl who doesn’t like girly stuff and is very lazy. He expects me for everything about me. He spends half of his life playing baseball, talking about baseball, or working for the Louisville River Bats as their batboy. As much as I hate all that I still accept him for everything that he is. You can’t really love someone if you don’t accept who they are.
