What you should've learned by 25


{image via: here

1. At first, one of the most effective ways to keep someone interested is to not be all that interested yourself. I don't get it either. But whether you are faking it or not, it works almost every time. Yes, there are always exceptions to the rule.

2. You can make yourself obsess over unimaginable things and people. To the point where you should maybe have someone hit you over the head with a baseball bat.

3. "Don't sleep with him on the first date." But if you do....it'll probably be fine. If that can be a deal breaker, than it was never going to work anyways.

4. Social cues. If you haven't learned this by 25, we have a lot of work to do. Know when someone isn't into you, know when you aren't invited somewhere, when you aren't wanted somewhere, when someone is annoyed with you, when you are being used, without have to pry and pry and pry for information. Take hints. And whatever you do, please don't be that person constantly making excuses for other people.

5.  Know when to call a spade a spade. Or an asshole an asshole.

6. Whether you are a girl or guy: stay away from guys with girlfriends, or girls with boyfriends, or boys with boyfriends...whatever, you get it. When someone is attached, and you are talking to them/seeing them, in one way or another it will not end well for you. Whether it's in a week, a month, or 10 years, those are things that cause permanent damage in a lot of ways. To all parties involved. Resentment, jealousy, insecurity, will latch on to both of you forever.

7. You will always have certain people in your life who don't actually want the best for you. They get a weird kick of happiness seeing you when you're down, no matter if they are the first one there for you or not.

8. Don't take out old relationship problems on the innocent new one. Not only is not fair, they will think you're psychotic.

9. Don't let disappointment get you down. If you're not happy and satisfied, it's not the end. Things will always get better. Remember, bad times will not last.

10. Don't settle for things that don't even make you happy.

11. If you have to fight so hard for something, it probably wasn't meant to be.

12. Don't push away the few people who love you unconditionally.

13. Everything happens for a reason. It's not just a bullshit cliche quote. If you don't see it now, you will in the future.
