So, naturally when I receive texts saying “haha okay :)” I assume they really mean “I want all of you forever—you and me, everyday.” Whoops. Even though I’m only 20, I believe that every guy I lock eyes with goes on my long list of Starbucks lovers and could be “the one.” I idealize love and can’t help but search for it.

When I like someone, I cling to every compliment and romantic notion.

Years ago I would have killed to have even one option, let alone unlimited options. The time when I appreciated women for both their perfections and imperfections is long gone.

I’m consumed by that gaze I snag when we study together, and am constantly envisioning our next encounter.

After all, the title “hopeless romantic” traditionally refers to someone who wants to love and be loved in the simplest and purest of ways. Long story short, his “playing hard to get” turned out to be genuine disinterest (whaaat? Imagine his shock when he returned to his dorm (to which I had no key) late one night and found me in there creepily waiting for him.

Stick me in a bar to meet women and I'm likely to freeze up and falter. Like a well-oiled machine, I repeat the same mindless process week after week, and then reap the same amazing rewards.
