“Smart girls have lives of their own.

They will not live their lives for you. They will not hang on your every word. Plus, they know that if things don’t work out, they will need others to fall back on, and they won’t have those others to fall back on if they spend every free moment with you. So give them their space. Do things without each other sometimes. It will give you more to talk about when you are together.”
