When he makes me feel loved:

When he doesn’t quite yet give me butterflies:

When he’s trying to get in my pants:

When he just outright sucks:

When he’s in the doghouse:

When he’s bugging me in general:

When he likes something I put on the web:

When he’s jumping to conclusions:

When he’s got morning wood:

When he makes me scratch my head:

When I’m buzzed and he sends a sweet text:

When I’m buzzed and messaging him on a dating app:

When he’s giving me butterflies, but I feel kind of weird about it:

When he upsets me in a way that makes me speak to the lord:

When I’m getting played and it stings:

When I get played again because I didn’t learn my lesson:

When he mentions his white privilege:

When he’s ghosting me:
