How To Love A Girl Who’s Guarded

You won’t know when a girl is guarded, not initially at least.

“Guarded” won’t be the word that comes to mind. You’ll think she’s independent and confident. Driven and seemingly content. She’s never seeking anything from you, never leaning in to the hint or the whisper. She seems as though she lives a big life, and it’s in that paradox that she’s most closed. She’s filled all the little spaces with something, something else.

Once upon a time she fell in love the way thousands and millions of people do every day and hour and in the last three seconds while you were reading this. But it wasn’t the falling in love, or the breaking up that ultimately broke her.

It was that she found the truest seeming, most divinely timed, so evidently fated love, only to learn that conviction is not actually an indication of what will…

20 years after…

The one truth about art is that it outlives the artist, perhaps that’s one of the reasons some of us write. I was quite young when I heard this song and I fell in love with it, the words made me cry, and at the time I didn’t know who Selena was, about her rise to success and glory which was tragically cut short. This song was part of my growing up in different stages of adolescence, of first crush, first love, second crush, and then some. Even today, this song puts me to tears, not only because the words are still relatable, but because sometimes the greats are given so little time. To imagine the impact she would have had, the words she couldn’t write, the songs we won’t get to hear and carry with us through the decades, it truly is our loss..

20 years after, you are loved and your music is celebrated. And all i have to say is Thank you!

Until next time,

Please Delete My Number

Because I’m going to miss you. Because you’re going to pop into my mind on a rainy Sunday evening when Bon Iver is humming in the background and I’ve poured myself a tall glass of wine and a whiff of your old cologne catches me suddenly off guard – lingering in the apartment like an unwanted house guest who was never invited to stay.

Please delete my number. Because I’m going to want to call you when I apply for that job you always said that I should go for, or cut my hair in that way I never dared to or get that dog we always talked about getting and don’t know who to text its eager picture to. I’m going to want to call you when the Bills win and when the last snow melts and when each long, wine-saturated night draws to a close and I wish…

1. They are not pulling their weight in initiating spending time with you. It’s not that they’re not available to you, it’s just that they always seem to be the responder and never the initiator. When you first start seeing someone, the give-and-take is really important. And if you become the sole giver and they become the sole taker, it can only lead to disaster.

2. They are always so so so busy. But aren’t we all? If elected officials, astronauts, med, JD, and PhD students, etc. make time to date, so can everybody else. When someone is interested in being with you, they will make time to be with you. And they will ensure you know you’re a priority to them even if they have a lot on their plate. “Busy” excuses, generally speaking, are bullshit.

3. Whatever their phone communication style is – whether its…
