As he comes in and out of your life, a part of you wonders why he can’t stay put - but he wasn’t meant to. Zac Brown Band said it best, he was "born for leaving."
1. He breaks every single promise he makes.
It's not that he's lying when he says he'll do something; whenever he makes a promise, he's sure he'll keep it this time. But then his instinct to bail kicks in and tells him to get out, asap.
He's not even entirely sure why he's leaving, he just knows that he doesn't want to be there when he doesn't get around to fulfilling the latest promise. If for some reason he gets caught...
2. His excuse game is on point.
He can rattle off ridiculous, completely unbelievable explanations like it's nobody's business and seems to have a never-ending list at his disposal.
The fact that you both know he's lying never seems to deter him.
3. He's completely comfortable staying the same.
You're always trying to better yourself, but he just can't be bothered.
Even though he's not changing, you hope that one day he will. He has so much potential...
4. You expect him to mean what he says, but he ends up just saying things that sound nice.
He’s mastered the art of stringing together words that make your heart swell and your cheeks flush.
A part of you knows he's just saying these things to say them, but you eat it up anyway.
5. He's a runner through and through.
You love him with everything in you, even when it means you have to tirelessly chase after him, but you’re always left wondering why the love you feel isn't strong enough to make him stay put.
6. He comes and goes as he pleases.
You haven't kicked him to the curb, he just leaves whenever he feels like it, secure in the fact that he knows exactly where you'll be when he's ready to come back.
And if there’s one thing you can be sure of, it’s that he'll always come back to you... eventually.
7. He won't acknowledge what a catch you are until you're gone.
One day, when you finally realize he's never going to stick around, you’ll adopt his worst habit and take off.
Even though you weren't born with a knack for it like he was, during the time you spent together you'll have learned how to leave from the very best.
