one of my favorite things about the rivals-to-lovers trope is when one of them, at the beginning of their relationship, grumbles about how much they hate the other person’s awful face and i sort of cackle to myself like, oh man. you’re going to have it so bad. it’s going to be so great. you are going to love the CRAP out of that awful face. you’ll be composing delicious, pining, sappy sonnets about it. i love it.
“Treasure your teen years and everything you experience working through them, because these are years you’ll never get back, not even for a minute. There will never come another time when you’ll be more vulnerable and honest and open than you are right now, when your heart speaks more truth and your motives are more pure. The rest of your life is a long time and you will carry these moments with you, made up of pain and vitality and heartache and joy and loneliness and fun. So start to chase whatever excites you, be confident, say yes, make mistakes, follow your heart, take risks, say no, be bold, and never look back on any memory with any regret. Your life is being shaped right now and you get to decide which path you follow. Where will it take you? How long until you get there? Who will you meet along the way? Who will you lose? Who will you keep? You get to choose. The future is now. And it’s yours.”

some of you are so shallow basing who you want to date purely off looks, you have to consider other qualities about the person too like do they have lots of money, do they drive a nice car etc
the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.
I think pretty much everywhere except the US is like this. In Mexico you pretty much live with your parents until you’re married or decide to leave on your own. There isn’t this sense of being forced to move out when you’re 18
