How could she ever doubt that he loved her? When loving her was what he did better than all the things he did beautifully.

Neal made up his mind as soon as he saw it.
The future was going to happen, even if he wasn’t ready for it. Even if he was never ready for it.
At least he could make sure he was with the right person.
Wasn’t that the point of life? To find someone to share it with?
And if you got that part right, how far wrong could you go? If you were standing next to the person you loved more than everything else, wasn’t everything else just scenery?

The first time she’d borrowed that T-shirt, Neal had laughed and pinned her to his bed.
Because he didn’t laugh when he thought something was funny—he laughed when he was happy.

“I never feel like laughing when things are funny,” he said. “I just think to myself, ‘Now, that’s funny.’”

“I think I can live without you,” he said, like it was something he’d spent twenty-seven hours thinking about, “but it won’t be any kind of life.”

“I’m not asking you to promise me that everything will be perfect,” Neal said. “Just promise me that you’ll try. That you’ll think about how it feels for me when Seth is in your bedroom. That you’ll think about how long you’re leaving me waiting when you’re at work. Or how I might be feeling when I’m stuck at a stranger’s party all night. I know I’ve been a jerk, Georgie—I’m going to try not to be. Will you try with me?”
“From this moment onward?”
“Yeah.”
From this moment onward, from this moment onward. She grabbed on to the idea and held tight. “Okay,” she said. “I promise.”

“Everything is going to change,” Neal said before she was ready for it. “Whether we want it to or not. Are you—Georgie, are you saying you don’t want to be better to me?” He didn’t give her a chance to answer. “Because I want to be better to you. I promise to be better to you.”

“How’d you know he was the one?”
“I didn’t know. I don’t think either of us knew.”

“I’m not good at knowing what I want,” he said at the end of the night, at the beginning of the morning. They were sitting on the beach, and Neal was holding Georgie’s hand. “I’m not usually good at wanting things.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever heard you say so many words in row,” Georgie said.
“I’m a bit off my game.”

Georgie was done kissing first. The next person she kissed was going to have to do all the work. Assuming she ever found anybody who thought she was worth it.

“You shouldn’t have to make anybody like you, Georgie. You should want to be with somebody who can’t help but like you.”

“You should try dating nice guys,” her friend Ludy used to say in high school. “They’re nice. I think you’d like them.”
“Boring,” Georgie’d said. “Pointless.”
“Not pointless—nice.”
They’d had this conversation in the cafeteria. They were waiting by the door so that Georgie could casually get in line behind Jay Anselmo, who was two years older than they were, really into No Doubt and competitive car stereos, and who would undoubtedly ignore her. “What’s the point of making a nice guy like me?” Georgie said. “Nice guys like everybody.”

“I notice you seem to be avoiding the hobbit hole,” Seth observed.
“I’m not avoiding,” Georgie said. “I’m working.”

“If you could travel into the past and fix a mistake, would you?”
“Yes,” he said, without even thinking about it. “Are you okay?”
“Yes, you would? You’d mess with the past?”
“Absolutely. You said there was a mistake—I’d fix it.”

Someday you and Neal will both be happier. You just have to survive, and give it time.”

She wasn’t sorry that she knew what she wanted to do with her life. She wasn’t sorry that she was making it happen.

“It’s like . . . you’re tossing a ball between you, and you’re just hoping you can keep it in the air. And it has nothing to do with whether you love each other or not. If you didn’t love each other, you wouldn’t be playing this stupid game with the ball. You love each other—and you just hope you can keep the ball in play.”

“You’ll see. It’s more like you meet someone, and you fall in love, and you hope that that person is the one—and then at some point, you have to put down your chips. You just have to make a commitment and hope that you’re right.”
