Friendly relationships are dangerous. They lend themselves to ambiguities, misunderstandings, and conflicts, and they always end badly. Formal relationships, on the other hand, are as clear as spring water. Their rules are carved in stone. There’s no risk of being misunderstood and they last forever.
Every date is a disaster. Every relationship is out of control. But if you stick with it, you wind up with someone in your life who will help you when you need to be helped, love you when you do not feel lovable, be with you no matter what.

The right thing is to be with who you should be with. Even if it’s messy, you make it work because you know you belong together, and I know we belong together.[to Beck]
People think that all those things I miss doing with Lisa, I could just do them anyway, and that would make me feel better. But they’re missing the point.

Instead of dating somebody because you think’s gonna make you cooler, why not date somebody you actually enjoy being around?[to Steve]
I should have shot you in the head. I should have shot you in the head and watched you die. I can’t stop thinking about you.[recording her message for Eve]
