In primary school we were taught how to take care of ourselves. But that’s in the past now. Here comes a new stage of life; relationships and friendship.

It might sound so foolish but social networks now took over relationships. I got to be dumped more often on social networks. There is less communication in relationships; more is now done over social networks.

Communication is the source of every relationship and there is no such thing as a broken relationship. Relationships are not built on mistakes that one might have made; they are about love that exist between the two.

Love goes in different directions and mine will never be like yours. Good behaviour determines a good relationship. Someone who loves you is quick to admire you. Someone who hardly notices your new hairdo or shirt cares less about you. Well boys don’t really talk about hair and we do notice that change.

Boys, don’t hesitate telling your girl how good she looks and she will always thank God for blessing them with you. Girls want to be asked more about if they are okay, how was this and that. Even if you’re not together, such interests keep communication routes open.

It is advisable to listen to everything that one has to say. If not, you will be in a guessing game. Someone who loves you will always listen to you no matter how senseless what you’re saying might be. A true relationship has its own fights and apologises. You can never know how strong a relationship is until you both have a good fight.

We’ve got to put pride aside when it comes to relationships, “Sorry,” and “I love you,” those are the main concepts. Partners should spend time together when needed.

After all that, love can be an issue. I noticed that I left one thing behind. It is too easy to feel comfortable in a relationship, and too easy to forget that others are on your tail. Boys see each other as competition while girls talk to each other about their relationships.

My friends are my friends and yours are yours. This way we are both safe from falling in love with each other’s friends. Why should you get to talk to my friend most of the time and give me less time? I used to think that all of these calls were friendly call. Sometimes I used to catch him saying silly things – like how he loves you. Then I thought as always that you are good friends.

I used to tell him how I love you, how much it takes to not disappoint you and how important you are to me. I guess he thought that was the kind of woman he also needed. He used every chance he had to get deep in your mind or should I say you are the one who did it?

I guess that’s the same way I had to date you. I was dating your friend before I dated you. All those jokes you made weren’t jokes after all; you did truly hate me. I trusted my friend to support me where I failed and he used my weaknesses as his success.

I was dumped and he won the girl.

Now I’m thinking and talking to myself. Who is there to trust in this world? Is it true that pastors and crooks are just the same? Don’t trust me with you girlfriend and I will not trust you with mine as well. Girls shouldn’t tell much to their friends or it could be used against them, the same applies to boys.

Those who love so much are the ones to get hurt always. That big empty space creates nothing less than pain.

As much as I love you, you still have my respect. My wish is to have someone to love me like you did, to be there forever like you couldn’t. Now I’m free from the pain that I had. I feared losing, trying my best not hurt you and now things are normal. I get to be punished by you with more pains.
