“dude” is a gender neutral term and i will not be convinced otherwise
A book can teach you, a conversation can assure you, a poem can seduce you, a genius can inspire you but only you can save yourself.

People that think they are going to be magically independent when they become 18.
Do not equate being single with being alone. I was thinking about this recently because of the phrase ‘just friends’ and ‘more than friends.’ That phrase implies that like, being ‘just friends’ with someone is somehow less than being in a romantic relationship with them - that like, friendship is a continuum that ends with sex. Which is an extremely weird thing to think and say, but it’s so built into our language that we don’t even think about how incredibly strange it is.
