Stop telling her you love her back when you don’t. Stop initiating feelings with that statement.
When you don’t reply to her, don’t say it was a mistake — tell her you didn’t want to talk to her,
tell her that’s shes boring, that she sucks; tell her that you don’t like her.
Stop using her as a safety net. Don’t play to keep her attached so that you can reap the benefits of her presence.
Stop making a home out of a person. Stop staying in a warm place and leaving as you please
just because you’re sure it’ll be there tomorrow, because one day, a little butane might leave or you might forget to blow out a candle
Tell me, where is your home now?
Stop dropping by — why are you hanging around her house? Don’t stand outside your car and tell her to come out.
Don’t knock on her door or her window and expect her to give up her time and comfort to accompany you.
Stop talking to her parents. Stop talking to her family. Stop talking about her to teachers who love her and people who miss her.
Stop telling people what the two of you have is ineffable. What makes it ineffable?
It’s not that you can’t express your love; it’s the fact that you won’t.
Stop sending her songs that remind you of her. Stop writing her notes filled with words that mean everything when you mean nothing.
Stop telling her that it’ll be okay. Stop telling her you love her when’s she’s sad.
Stop asking her if she’s hungry. Stop telling her about the things you are passionate about.
She has a soft spot for people who can vividly remember their childhood stories: stop taking advantage of the fact.
Stop going over when you are sick, when she is sick.
Stop taking care of her. Make her suffer. Let her die.
Stop telling her not to hurt herself when she tells you that she wants to.
Tell her she should; tell her she’s worthless, and when she replies, don’t reply again. Leave her hanging.
Leave her hanging; let her hang… herself.
Admit it, she was your safety net. She is who you fall into when you take risks — do you want to jump out of planes? jump off of skyscrapers? go bungee jumping? fall into love? All of that’s a little less scary when your safety net is at the bottom.
Stop making her feel untrue love. Stop telling her marvelous things.
When you talk to her, subtly tell her that she’s fat, “You’ve been eating a little more than usual, huh?”
When you talk to her, subtly tell her that she’s ugly, “No make-up today, huh?” even if you see her face is caked.
When you talk to her, directly tell her that you don’t love her by staying silent when she tells you that she loves you.
Stop hanging around. Stop studying with her. Stop telling her about books you think she might like,
stop telling her about articles you think she’ll enjoy; stop telling her about music you think she should listen to.
Stop telling her about movies that’ll make her cry, and stop telling her about TV shows you think she should watch.
Stop coming over and looking at things that interest you and sharing them with her.
Stop exposing so much of yourself to her; the more exposure, the more she’ll fall.
It’s awfully selfish of you to make somebody feel love from you when it isn’t true.
