Have you ever stumbled across a random teenage girl's polyvore or blog or tumblr or wordpress that's filled with graphics emblazoned with sayings like
but they just go on and on and on, emo-ish trite little teenager sayings and song lyrics and graphics, and you realize that you've just stumbled across a broken heart that doesn't know how to stop itself? That's bathing in the pain? That's lonely? That for some reason has chosen to feel stranded?
I hurt for these teenage girls when I stumble across their web domains. I wish I could reach over the internet and give them hugs.
But then I realize that that wouldn't do anything, because I'm a girl, and they're looking for a cure that I can't give them. They don't want ordinary friendship and support. Even a guy's internet-hug would be non-sufficient and creepy... unless he met the threshhold for attractiveness and sweetness.
Still, I feel a hurt.
