On being emotionally involved

I feel like I’m getting too emotionally involved in my relationship. I’ve been dating this guy for a while now, and I literally have never felt so, I don’t know, caught up in it all. I’m only 20 and I literally want to marry him. I think about it all the time. I shouldn’t be thinking of marriage, I should be out getting drunk and hanging out with friends. You know what I do instead? BAKE. I’m dreaming of a little domestic life and I don’t know how to handle it. How do I get out of this terrible, terrible, slump I’m in Coketalk?

First of all, stop using the word literally as an intensifier. Also, spit out your gum.

Listen, cupcake. There is nothing wrong with daydreaming about wedding days and white picket fences. You’ve got a crush on this guy. That’s great. Enjoy it, but don’t worry. It’ll pass.

You’re getting all freaked out because you think you’re in a slump. Nope. This is a peak. You’re at the top of the fucking mountain right now, babe. The slump comes later when Mr. Abercrombie & Fitch decides to dump you for another sorority girl because you got too drunk one night and started absent-mindedly throwing around the M word.

This is the first time you’ve ever been emotionally involved in a relationship, and you’re over here complaining that your bicycle has training wheels. Trust me, you need them. You’re still a child who doesn’t yet think for herself. That’s fine, but I’d be wasting my time expounding on the virtues of vulnerability and owning your emotions.

For now, just keep baking and do what feels good.
