The feeling of being in love feels great… except when it doesn’t. Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants — even if you don’t want it. Hearts are weird, huh? Here’s what it’s like to love someone you just know is wrong for you:
You Can’t Be With that Person but You Can’t Not Be With That Person
What’s going on between your head and your heart is as uncoordinated as a newborn deer. Your head is all, “Hey, listen to me, sticking a fork in a socket is a better idea than dating this person,” and your heart is all, “Go for it!!!” Because apparently your heart likes sparks, explosions, and fiery catastrophes.
You Know You’re Better, but You Still Do It Anyways
If there’s any saving grace in loving someone that you know is wrong for you, it’s that you know they’re wrong for you. You do it anyways, but at least you can say you know better. It’s like eating booger-flavored jelly beans. You know it’s going to taste gross. It even clearly says it’s flavored like boogers. But you do it anyways because, hey, you’re human.
It’s Painful. So Painful
Love isn’t going to the dentist, so why does it sometimes feel the same way? And when will the United Nations weigh in on love as a form of torture? Human rights are being violated — namely your right to not get caught up in those dreamy blue eyes.
It Seems Like You’re Playing Games, but it’s Really Just You Figuring it Out
You go back and forth on your feelings, and the other person might think you’re playing games. But really, you’re figuring out your feelings. You like the other person, but you don’t like the other person, but you miss the other person when they’re not around, but when you’re with the other person it’s hard. What’s so confusing about that?
Your Friends Don’t Get It
Astrophysicists probably don’t even get it. Nobody gets it. Not even you.
You Know There’s Someone Better for You
If this person is wrong for you, it means there must be someone out there who is right for you. Right? Every sock has a match, and just because you’re an argyle sock who’s paired with a polka dot sock right now doesn’t mean there’s not another argyle sock out there for you in the future.
