I just saw this article because one of my friends posted it on Facebook. It’s Andrew WK giving love advice to a 15-year-old girl. And I’ll tell you, it’s good advice for anyone at any age. Turns out he does this regularly for the Village Voice. I didn’t know that until today, but I just may read it regularly, now.
“Dear Lovesick Girl,
You’re a wonderful, special, and beautiful person who deserves to be treated with respect, kindness, and love. No matter how much you may care about your boyfriend, and no matter how much he says he loves you, you should never be made to feel ugly, or pressured into acting or dressing a certain way or doing anything that makes you feel bad. You should be able to be yourself. There is nothing wrong with you that you need to fix in order to be good enough for him. That’s the best thing about a true love relationship — you get to be yourself exactly as you are, in fact, you get to be yourself more than ever, and you get to be loved exactly because that’s who you are.”
