Never, ever settle. You may think you aren’t gorgeous or smart or have too many insecurities to count. But there is going to be someone in the world who truly love you for you. Don’t ever think that you’ve got to put up with some boy’s rudeness because he’s the first in a long time to show some interest. You are all beautiful in your own individual way, so never lower your standards.
You know, the right guy won’t change you. He won’t subtly pressure you. He won’t tell you who you can and can’t talk to about the two of you. He won’t hide the fact that you’re hanging out. He’s not going to tell you you’re wrong for feeling, for being a girl. The right guy will show you off to his friends. He’ll take it as slow as you want. He’ll only go as far as you’re comfortable with. He’ll take you out to places, even if it’s just a fast food place or the store. He’ll actually sit through your stupid girly Disney movies with you because he wants to watch them with you. The right guy will come along someday. You just got to tough it out and wait for him. But whatever you do, do not settle. You deserve so much more.
