Instead you get a passive aggressive response to a text message or a suspiciously relevant subtweet, quietly calling you out in characters or less. And that is the relationship I am ready to wait for, for as long as it takes, even with the risk that I end up alone forever. We live in a world where people are afraid to feel anything genuine, or at the very least, are afraid to show it. My last boyfriend was an amazing chef and I feel like more guys should be embracing their culinary sides.
