I often forget how shy boys can be. From a girl's point of view, you guys have so much perceived power. You are supposed to earn it individually but even if you don't, this is a societal construct and we as girls are just as guilty of giving in to it as you are.

When you don't talk, we think you know something we don't know. We usually don't even consider the fact that you are probably scared witless to make a move 'cause you don't know how. From here, it doesn't look like you're just seem mysterious. Then we end up doing the chasing and look incredibly stupid in the process.

We completely forget how much power we have. Such a shame.

I resolve to not forget why I love boys so much. They are goofy and sweet and one hundred percent pliable if you know what you're dealing with.

The only reason I say boys instead of men and girls instead of women is that nobody changes that much after high school. On the inside, you are now who you were then. We all still feel like we're 16. It's just that homework and being popular look completely different later.
