Why do I choose him?
My friends wonder why I see my boyfriend so much, I know they bitch behind my back and say that I choose him over them. Sure, I do see him a lot, but what they don’t realise is that I never cancel on them to do something with him. The reason I see him is because he actually wants to spend time with me whereas you have to make a fucking appointment 3 months in advance to see them and then they won’t turn up because, ‘I don’t like the restaurant you’re going to’, ‘I have work the next day’, ‘my mum wants me to walk the dog’. They are never willing to compromise or do something for someone else. We’re all going off to university soon and they can’t take a couple of hours out of their ‘oh so important’ schedule of bullshit to see the friends that have stood by them for the last 7 years. So excuse me when my actual best friend, who also happens to be my boyfriend makes time for me more than you!
