About a week or two ago I recieved an email introducing me to a new form of social media. Storylane is a platform where users are challenged to tell a story, and share it. For those who don’t have that natural flow inspiration, there’s a endless list of questions you can answer too! The first question I choose to answer was “what would you tell your sixteen your old self?”. Here it goes!
When I was sixteen, I had my first love. There was nobody that compared to my baby. And nobody came between us, no one could ever come above. I like to start this story with some (not necessarily wise) words from the Beebs. It’s a story about the worst day of my teenage life.
I got ditched. Awfully, painfully ditched. Like an old piece of cloth that the boy in question used to clean his car windows before he drove off into the glorious sunset with that other girl. I saw all the signs and knew what was coming, but I stayed. Like every young girl who thinks she found love would. Today, 3.5 years later, I am looking back at the whole situation and I can, with a dose of humour, sum up some reasons why my sixteen year old self shouldn’t have started dating him in the first place:
♥ Never date anyone who’s shorter than you. It looks silly.
♥ Never date anyone who’s 20 and still let’s his mommy make his lunchbox.
♥ Never date anyone who’s scared of the doctor. He won’t protect you from burglars!
♥ Never date anyone who says he likes brunettes, when you are a redhead.
♥ Never date anyone who’s on the internet more that he’s with you
The boy I’ve been dating for three years now has made me realize what a loving relationship should be like. The funny thing is, I knew him waaaaay before I started dating the boy I talked about above. We just needed to grow up a little to realize we liked each other more than we made out to.
♥ Stay… if he secretly leaves you a bowl of your favorite berries in the fridge
♥ Stay… if he puts on his baby voice on skype and tells you he loves you
♥ Stay… if he says he’ll go to Zara for you and pick up that dress and a copy of InStyle Mag
♥ Stay… if he lends you his comfy sweatpants
♥ Stay… if he makes you feel beautiful
♥ Stay… if he stays on the line while you are fighting him. And, let’s be honest, not calling him pretty names.
♥ Stay… if he sucks in racing games and you win all the time
♥ Stay… if he makes everything the other one ruined, better and makes you forget all about him
But darling, we are still not naming our future baby Daenerys. I always have to Google how it’s spellend and that would just sad for her.
