To the guy who can’t communicate, I have something to say: Running from problems doesn’t make them disappear.You made me feel like my need to communicate and resolve our issues was irrational, but all I wanted to do was lay down some honesty so we could work towards a better future.

The current generation of teenagers is the first one to go through this phase of their life with social media at their fingertips. We didn’t hashtag our boyfriend to tell him we loved him with our entire heart.

We doodled their name in our notebook, held their hand in the hall at school and maybe, if we were lucky, got to go to a movie on Saturday night.

I didn’t want to fight, but you eventually brought it out of me when you turned your head the other way, sometimes for days on end.

You didn’t want to join me in the successes that we could have had together, and it’s a crying shame, because all you needed to do was f*cking speak. I wanted you to tell me what was going on in that beautiful mind of yours. I never asked to be whisked away by your madness, your passion, or your quick-witted charm, but I was, and you left me hanging. Even though you left me with so many questions to which I’ll never get any answers, I’m grateful because it’s shown me not only what I truly need in a partner, but it’s also given me the strength to move on from the unknown and to answer my own questions. It going to take time, but I hope you figure it out. I could wish you unpleasant pastures ahead, but I won’t.

You are being molded, hardship by hardship into the beautiful woman of God that he sees you to be.

From deep down within my heart and soul, I know that you are going to be okay.Also, some of you may be so broken that you have no clue what to do next because you’re feeling stuck. It’s okay to feel, to cry and to just simply to experience all that you are going through.Here’s the thing, I promise you from the depths of my heart, you being bent into the woman your creator wants you to be.She's a lover of wine, sushi, all things Parisian and spiking her coffee with Baileys.First, I want to thank you for your support and encouragement. — and yet, you took a moment out of your busy day to try to help me. Oh god, I should probably also try to be a little less sarcastic, huh? I think mostly it’s that I dig where you’re coming from, Steve: You didn’t say it outright, but I know what you’re telling me is that I’ll probably never find a man if I don’t smile more. He was right — at least ever since they passed that law about women needing to look happy the time.Andrea Wesley Andrea is a 31 year old freelance writer living in the suburbs of Vancouver, Canada.
