"He said it was a one night stand, but the alcohol didn't let her understand."
- Cute Is What We Aim For
I think it's happened to all of us at least once. You're having a fun night out. You've had a few drinks. You meet an amazing guy.
He tells you how he can easily see himself with you. He tells you you're special. He acts so impressed by and interested in everything about you.
He tells you everything that makes you believe he's different.
He's perfect. He's everything you think you've ever wanted. And those drinks you've had, they have you convinced that it's okay to fully put your trust in him.
You spend the whole night with him. You leave together. You drunkenly, yet honestly, open up to him completely. Emotionally and physically.
You wake up the next morning and reach for the arms that you allowed to stay wrapped around you all night...but your bed is empty.
He's gone. Just like that. Everything he said, meaningless. Everything you'd thought you'd found, lost.
You're confused, you're hurt, you're broken. Guilt and shame blur your eyes and wet your cheeks.
You can't figure out how someone could be so cruel as to just disappear after everything they'd made you feel, after all the amazing things they said....
"But what made you think that he couldn't find the door in the morning, when he found that bed so easily in the dark?"
His perfect words were simply a disguise for what he really wanted. He said everything you wanted to hear, so that you would give him everything he wanted.
But guess what? That makes him the awful person, not you. You were vulnerable. You opened up. You saw potential. You cared.
This guy leaving, it says nothing about you, but so much about him. Always remember that.
You are not dumb. You are not stupid. You shouldn't regret a damn thing you did. All you did was give someone a real chance to show you something different.
He failed, not you.
Someone who doesn't even have the capability to be honest about their intentions does not deserve someone like you.
You are good enough. He was not.
So, to the girl that woke up alone; be thankful that you did...
Because you truly deserve so much more.
