“We accept the love we think we deserve.” from The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Ecclesiastes croons, “There is a time for love.”
If you are indulging in an intimate friendship with a man who is not pursuing you, you are accepting a cheap imitation of love.
And by spending all your time with a guy who will never put a ring on your finger, you may miss a potential suitor.
What kind of Love that we truly deserve?
