That awkward moment when you leave a store without buying anything and all you can think is “act natural, you’re innocent”.
Even the trees understand me! Good heavens, I lie under them, too, don’t I? I’m just like a pile of leaves.
— Frank O’Hara, Meditations in an Emergency
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.
