: let’s face it, it was never love at first sight. It was instant distaste for your empty shell, your people-pleaser attitude, your one layered beauty. Like the captain of the football team who didn’t quite make the grades and compensates for it otherwise. The first time I met you, I was looking to escape from you already.
But we kept bumping into each other through the years. A birthday party here and there, a stopover on my way to New York, a friend’s visit.. and slowly I warmed up to you, and also slowly realised that at least that one layer you had was honest, and unpretentious in a ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of way. Maybe you’re not so bad after all - I thought.
It’s only really been in the past couple of years that my infatuation with you has fully grown, a friendzoned boy who has become something more. California, I have finally fallen in love with you. 🌴🌴🌴
