I’ve been told it’s important to always be nice.
But nice can be dangerous.
It puts me in places I don’t want to be.
I don’t know how to get out of them and still be a nice girl.
He gives me flowers and demands which he mistakes for endearments.
I try to explain to him.
To make him realize that this is not how love works.
He doesn’t listen.
I don’t think he even understands.
I don’t know what will happen if I stop being nice.
