A Chuck Klosterman quote

"There are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these loveable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone"

you must be stalking me. i was just talking to my sister about this today.


i suppose that is why little girls grow up to marry men like their daddies. meaning your first love is usually your parents maybe not a romantic love but true soul to soul love.

so we can always blame our parents for our failed relationships. i do, you should too.
