If more females would sit down and be ladies, then more males would stand up and be gentlemen.

There was a difference between what you said & what you did.

Second chances don’t always mean a happy ending. Sometimes, it’s just another shot to end things right.

I’m scared to death. I’m scared of letting you in, I’m scared of taking a chance, I’m scared of giving you the power to break me.

But I tried, I’ve tried to explain myself to you. I tried to tell you how it’s not easy for me to open up to you. But you don’t get it, nobody gets it but me. I’ve built a wall around myself but I don’t know how to break it down. I want to, I really do, but it’s hard. And I’m denying you because of it. Just please don’t give up on me.

You shouldn’t be with someone because you have everything in common with that person. You should be with someone because you two are able to tolerate each other’s differences. Having everything in common is for best friends. Opening each other’s minds to new worlds is love.

I know you’ve changed, but when I talk to you, it’s like we’re the same two people we always were.

I’ts important to know when a relationship has run its course. Sometimes all you can say is, “I’ve learned all I can learn from this person and we’ve grown all we can together… it’s time to move on.

You and me have been through hell and back. We were strangers, we were friends,
we were lovers, and we were haters. Now we still love each other to death but in a
different way then ever before. It’s a love that if anything bad ever happened to me
I know that you will be there to help me back up. I promise I will be there for you through
thick and thin. Cause if I lose you then I lose part of me.

Sometimes i really want to punch you but then i realize you have to look in the mirror everyday and thats punishment enough.

"So you believe in second chances now," he said, clarifying. "I believe," I said, "In however many you need to get it right."

I don’t know, i mean, i want to be his friend. but then again, i don’t. you know? i mean how can you simply be friends with someone when every time you look at them you’re thinking about how much more you really want.

Even though I like you, in front of you I pretend I don’t. Even though I’m hurt, I pretend that I’m fine. Even though I fully know everything, I pretend that I don’t know anything. Even though I miss you, I pretend that I feel nothing. Even though I still haven’t moved on or let go, I pretend that I moved on. Even though I cry, I pretend that I’m happy and smile.

You might be thinking, ‘when he looks at me, i bet you he doesn’t feel a thing.’But.. do any of us really know that? He could be looking at you and wishing you two didn’t mess things up.He could still care about you, you just don’t want to believe it because the way he acts around you. Ignoring you, not looking you in the eye.. Maybe he is really the one who would want you in his life, maybe not as much, but it’s better than nothing at all, right?
