I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, ’cause we’re resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think I’d be an idiot if I didn’t marry this girl she’s so great. But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option… ‘Oh he’s got a good job.’ I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who’s got a good job and is gonna stick around.

Do you think men like him care? No matter how beautiful you’ve become, how interesting you are, how observant you have been, and how you can crack jokes with the ease of someone who didn’t have to work on acquiring wit, he will not turn his head around. It doesn’t matter because he found that other girl who will smile at anything he says. It doesn’t matter because everything that makes you so wonderful and brilliant does not matter. Revenge is best served unaware.
