me: you’re such a romantic
always romanticizing
i love it

friend:  i just want to have someone and know that we will be together forever
and never have to wonder about that
and i want someone to think of me as the love of their life

me:  you will have it

friend:  like that couple I told you about
their love is unconditional
they were so cute to be around
i was just like…damn, they really love each other
how often do you see love like that

me:  not often enough
there are so many fucking rules
i wish people WOULD just love each other
