If you break someones heart and they still talk to you with the same excitement and respect, believe me they really love you. Its really dumb it takes breaking up to realize that though. And they dont deserve that.
My flirtation ship with this guy was perfect. Like something out of a movie. Now we are just friends. It hurts like hell but it's not my fault he can't see me for more than just a friend. His loss. Never let anyone have the power to define what you are.
