    Greg Behrendt
    “We have become a sloppy bunch of people. We say things we don't mean. We make promises we don't keep. "I'll call you." "Let's get together." We know we won't. On the Human Interaction Stock Exchange, our words have lost almost all their value. And the spiral continues, as we now don't even expect people to keep their word; in fact we might even be embarrassed to point out to the dirty liar that they never did what they said they'd do. So if a guy you're dating doesn't call when he says he's doing to, why should that be such a big deal? Because you should be dating a man who's at least as good as his word.”
    Greg Behrendt

Remember always what you set out to get and please don't settle for less. These guys exist because there are a lot of women out there who allow them to.”
    Greg Behrendt

    Jodi Picoult
    “Relationships always sounded so physically painful: you fell in love, you broke a heart, you lost your head. Was it any wonder that people came through the experience with battle scars?”
    Jodi Picoult, The Tenth Circle

  • #24
    Greg Behrendt
    “I'm about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word "busy" is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you're going to find is a man who didn't care enough to call. Remember men are never to busy to get what they want.”
    Greg Behrendt

    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

  • #29

    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
