Love Me Like You Do

EDIT – I was going through my drafts and found this gem right here from 2015. It’s crazy how it still applies even 5 years later, so I thought to just go ahead and post it. It’s been years since asofterworld stopped publishing these kind of comics, but I still find myself going back to the website once in a while to check (or hope) for something new.

I have been single for a while now, and while I don’t mind it because I’m still trying to figure myself out (and the rest of the world for that matter) sometimes it does bother me especially since my mother has been on my back about getting a boyfriend for some time now. She is very concerned about me being single. I get it. I am approaching mid-twenties now (THE HORROR) and she probably wants me to start being secure with someone already. Like many out there, I still have issues with commitment and I’m just trying to put all the pieces together and get to know as many guys out there. Nevermind the fact that I always get the “don’t-like-the-one-who-likes-you”/”like-the-one-who-doesn’t-like-you” syndrome. I just miss the whole doing nothing with someone, the kind …
