but high-key, John is the only ex I acknowledge or accept as a former boyfriend/thing that matters/counts bc John is the only “let’s call this s/t” person who was not sexually abusive [+ and other types] and actually trash that I was way too good for and settling w/ the whole time ((((((((:
That means, I am making a very bold commentary on anyone else you may have associated me with having been in a relationship with that is neither Dirk nor John aaaand if you associate with any of those people you are 100% some kind of irrelevant + dead to me
i wanna date someone and live with them in a shitty apartment but be happy about it because we are happy together and we can decorate it with stupid dorky posters of shit we like and figurines and art and we can cook weird recipes we found on the internet and eat them and watch cartoons even if the food is gross because we made it and we’re perfect
If “shitty” means small, but very new/very clean, HMU. but also the food will probably be consistently good and dorky in the inherently sense, but also ready to be envied

I want to text my dad, but I also want to be able to text my partner stuff that have minimal chance to be mistexted to my dad…
It would be more okay if it were my mom because I could always go and delete it off whatever device OR just be like “haha oops” and it wouldn’t be less weird, but a weird I’d rather navigate.
