College dating boyfriend
He was being really social and going out a lot, whereas I’ve always been a bit of a homebody. I went through a bit of a mental health scare — I was anxious and depressed — and I felt like he didn’t know how to support me.
We went to different universities (though we were still in the same city), and were looking for different experiences.
It was 6pm and I was back in the city I used to live in. It seemed weird because when I was younger it looked so big.
I took the route I used to take as a teenager and I stopped for a moment. The school yard wasn't as big as I use to think.
And if you're good at the science of social dynamics then you'll be like most guys or girls.
Finding one perfect partner after a bunch of false starts has been sold to us as the ultimate romantic narrative.
