They are not your public status symbol. They are a person.
We’re Shittiest To The Ones We Love
Kris Gage

I think that this is one of the biggest issues with relationships today. We tend to date someone because being single “isn’t cool” or because we don’t want people to think that we’re found as unattractive. We make up feelings. We pretend to love each other when in reality we really just want to look good. It comes as a small wonder that so many people are treated like dirt by their significant other and are cheated on.
