We all forget it when we are single, but being in a relationship is not always awesome.


Keep calm and carry on.

I hope its nothing serious. Every now and again I feel that way too.

But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned

I keep reminding myself, now that I am single yet again... not to remember it as better than it was.

In reality, the guy was loud, a little classless, shallow, and slightly obnoxious. Oh, and passive-agressively nasty from time to time.

That... and he never listened to me. I HATE that.

So yeah, single ain't so bad.

When they suck they really suck. Hopefully it's momentary. Hopefully it leads to greater understanding. But I know it can be really hard!

It's fine. Someone just got on my last nerve last night.

Living with someone who works nights can be really frustrating.

Keep calm and carry on.
