There are some people you meet in life that stop you dead in your tracks. Their presence makes you wonder why you hadn’t met sooner and the finesse with which they enter makes you question the legitimacy of coincidence. For whatever time you have them, let them mean the world to you, appreciate them, adore them, replace their modesty in which they view their impact in your life with countless affirmations of their true force in your life. Who knows of the length with which they will be, but however long, just let them. It will be tough. They may just be the most beautiful shooting star or a lifetime of countless sunrises and sunsets together. They steal you away from reality, make you dream bigger, subtly and often unknowingly inspire the best in you. All you have to do is “come across” the right person and the everyday becomes beautiful and what is simple becomes extraordinary.  #lifelessons #love #perspective #relationships #friendship #passion #nosuchthingascoincidence #thankful #inspiration #adoration #life #whatevermaycome #wholeness #whoknows   (at 1212 N State Parkway Chicago)

New York is kinda overrated… just saying. Chicago is all the big city with much less congestion. It feels so open, lively, and more laid back but still busy. It’s first on my list of places to live. Something about this city… she was right. Lol #Chicago #food #life #fun #work #play #culture #career greatcity (at Chicago Riverwalk)

dormtainment is back once again with… " I Think I Love You."

When a girl text you I love you a little to soon. “I think I love you… TRICK you don’t love me, trick you don’t love me, trick you don’t love me!”

LOL I was dying laughing at the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” part! lmao

A Photographer Persuades Strangers To Do Something Really Odd, And They Totally Love It

This project is gonna sound kinda wacky at first. I bet the people this photographer approached thought he was bonkers. But I’m glad they played along, because it seems like it made their days a whole lot better. One woman sums it up quite nicely at 1:30.’

If you can’t trust someone with all of you, you’re cheating them out of the opportunity to accept you for who you are, what you’ve been through, and where you come from. Trust is key. Without it, any relationship never really exists because whomever loves you, never really had you in the first place. Trust is key. #love #friendships #relationship #trust #life #choices #faith #acceptance #honesty #openup

This hurts so bad…

Just went to dinner with my ex whom I’m still very interested in, still love like crazy. I’ve been telling her that through all the months we’ve been apart and we’ve both stayed away from seeing other people. She calls me and asks me out to dinner. I’m thinking she wants to see me, spend time with me, sort of rekindle that love we still have for each other. Towards the end of dinner, our conversation leads us in a direction where things get awkward and she says something that triggers me asking what she means. She hesitates and pauses. I get that faint drop in my stomach and in my head, I can hear the faint ticking of a figurative bomb. She reaches in her wallet, pulls out a square picture and lays it on the table just in front of me. I look down and it’s a sonogram.

We haven’t had sex since a week before we broke up over 6 months ago, so I know it’s not me, plus we always had protected sex and she always made sure we used condoms. It’s a friend of hers, two or so months ago, during the same time I was talking to her, asking her out on weekends to catch up and spend time with her and just be close to her. She got drunk at her older brother’s wedding and they had unprotected sex. It sucks so badly for me emotionally, but I can’t tell her how I feel because it feels selfish to unload all this emotional distress that yeah, I know we weren’t officially together, but you and I both constantly told each other how much we cared about each other. There was a degree of loyalty there. And honestly, I get that it’s bigger for me than her, but I loved her, still do and yeah, she got drunk, but if alcohol was the only thing needed to have sex, unprotected sex with someone else, then what the fuck is the point of being a loyal man? Why does it suck SO BAD to be a good guy?
