In the ups and downs of dating, it can be really easy to get either A.) jaded or B.) timid. But you have to do what you can to keep a clear head, be honest with yourself and others throughout the dating process, and risk giving or receiving some hurt, which undoubtedly is the hardest part. But C.S. Lewis said it best, as writers so often do.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable.
Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

And please, no alarm regarding this post - I am not in the throes of healing from a failed crush - I just thought the quote was a very good thing to remember. Happy Friday!
