I wasn’t desperate on OKCupid the way I’d been with Forrest.
I was waiting for him to tell me I wasn’t good enough, the way I told myself that every day. If you start a relationship when you don’t love yourself, you’ll have many hardships along the way. My peers were starting to have relationships as young as 12. In my experience, it’s better to let love come naturally.
There was no way that he could like me in that way.
I was interested in giving a relationship with Mike a try, yet I was afraid.
I was more attractive because I cared about myself and what I put into my body.
The number of messages I received on OKCupid confirmed that I had something valuable to offer. True, I still had some weight to lose and wasn’t completely confident in myself.
