Top 10 Best Quotes

“What irritated me most in that entire situation was the fact that I wasn’t feeling humiliated, or annoyed, or even fooled. Betrayal was what I felt, my heart broken not just by a guy I was in love with, but also by, as I once believed, a true friend.”

“It might take only one second to hurt the one you love but it takes forever to heal.”

“A true friend is the one who knows everything about you and still loves you. Eventually, people will forget the things you said or did, but the feelings you woke up in them they will never forget!”

Some of the guys weren’t that empty beneath the surface, some even proved to be quite the opposite. True-Prince-charming kind of guys... And their girlfriends! They were even more charming princesses when they found out. Well, I guess we all have our little flaws... So, after some time, I was finally coming to terms with the genuine truth that there was no such thing as a perfect boyfriend. On the other hand, Melina was waiting for her prince on a white horse, and was honestly expecting him to show up single.

“Every night I went to bed promising myself I would tell him goodbye in the morning and leave. But along with the mornings always came new reasons to delay that, new places to see. I knew I was only making excuses for myself, but there was no one to reproach me, so I figured it was OK.”

“It’s not your fault that your brain is reduced to the size of one neuron and that it itself is being annihilated by the loneliness.”

“I know you will do what your heart tells you,” he added quietly. And I did. Not what my head was whispering, but what my heart was shouting. I put my arms around his neck pulling him closer.”
