“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”
It might be wise but living life with no risk also brings no real reward. How can you truly love if you don’t give yourself the chance to fall? And to not believe in anything brings you pain maybe but leaves one awfully jaded. Sometimes, you just can’t avoid being the one that’s left and if you always leave before you get left, you can miss out on a lot of good things. Without the bad, there is no good.
