"Every girl wants 'prince charming' . . . and while he may be nice and all, I'm thinking I'd rather have the guy that's gonna call at 4am just to say hi, or someone who'll stop by my house - after just hanging up the phone - because he wants to see how I'm really doing. Because I said I was fine, but we both know I'm lying. Or the guy who'll stay home on a Saturday night with me because I'm sick and bring me my favorite kind of candy. . . even though I can't eat it because my stomach flips at the idea. That guy - that one guy . . . he may not be prince charming to anyone else . . . but he'd be my hero. My knight in shining armor. Anyone who'd rather stay home on a Saturday night and hold my hair while I puke . . . that's a hero."

"I have high hopes that this year will be the year the dumb girl in me finally dies. she is long overdue for a painless, or even a painful, death. I'm so sick of listening to her try to convince me of things I know don't make any sense: that the plots of romantic movies are plausible; that men who have cheated repeatedly might suddenly decide to turn over a new leaf; that guys who are assholes might turn out to be more considerate in time." - It's My F---ing Birthday by Merrill Markoe

"So if you hear me say that I believe in love, don't make me feel ashamed. I used to sing the saddest songs." - shakira

"I would rather you say 'I love you,' just once and truly mean it than say it a thousand times and never mean it even once."

"There haven't been that many men I've been interested in, but I do have a tendency to fall for the ones who will never be interested in me, and the ones that fall for me are generally pretty revolting." - Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

"There's only one thing greater than my fear -- that is my love. My love will always conquer my fear -- but it can't do it immediately. It needs the full force of my love to do it and it takes days for that to emerge out of its dark hiding places."

"uninspired and growing tired. why am I always so attracted to drama?" - The Ataris, "giving up on love"

"when I'm really serious about making this love thing work, I start bargaining. maybe we all do. I gather up my vices -- sugar, buying houseplants and then never watering them, cynicism -- and promise to abstain from all three in exchange for a new, more optimistic prospective. a life that works." - Girls' Poker Night by Jill A. Davis

"I'm missing the bride gene. I should be put in a test tube and studied." - Sex and the City

"I do what most women do. I meet someone and some of it's right, maybe he looks right, or has the right job, or the right background, and, instead of sitting back and waiting for him to reveal his other bits, I make them up. I decide how he thinks, how he's going to treat me, and, sure enough, every time I conclude that this time he's definitely my perfect man, and all of a sudden, well, not so suddenly perhaps, usually around six months after we've split up, I see that he wasn't the person I thought he was at all." - Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like 'maybe we should just be friends' or 'how very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love." - Sandman: The Kindly Ones by Neil Gaman

"I've been a bad, bad girl. I've been careless with a delicate man and it's a sad, sad world when a girl will break a boy just because she can." - Fiona Apple, 'Criminal'
