If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in the past year, it would be that nobody should ever be embarrassed to be with you. They should want to shout it at the top of their lungs and point and smile and laugh with you and not care who sees. They should want to bring you home to meet their parents, their siblings, their extended family. They should want to make you happy, surprise you with little things and lie on their side in the morning and be ecstatic they woke up next to their favourite person- their best friend. They should want to love every part of you, even the bits tucked away, and all the gory details hidden at the back of your mind.
So if anybody tries to tell you that you’re “not their type”, or that they want to “keep it quiet” politely tell them to go fuck themselves because you’re worth early morning giggles and late night deep conversation and all of the bits inbetween.
