"I can't believe I ever dated him." I exclaimed, wiping my mascara stained cheeks with the sleeves of my black sweater before letting out a frustrated groan at how horrible I probably looked.

Luna, my best friend since first grade, shrugged her shoulders and replied. "He was hot."

"Are you kidding me right now? I'm in the middle of campus crying my fucking eyes out and that's all you can say?"

"Yeah," Luna started off and pulled her mouth into a frown. "I mean, who cries over boys anymore?"

"Luna!" I exclaimed once more, my eyes rolling at her failed attempts to comfort me. "You're the shittiest friend in the world, do you know that? You could've at least just told me he doesn't deserve me or that I'm too good for him and that I should move on instead."

"All of those are true." My best friend confirmed. "But why do you need me to tell you what you already know? I'm just being honest with you."

I closed my eyes and let out a sigh. "You're right, and I take it back, you are the best-est friend in the world, thank you."

"And as your best friend, I'm telling you right now that we're going to the bathroom so you won't scare anybody in class later with your raccoon eyes." She commented with a laugh. "You totally look like you've rolled in coal."

I playfully punched her in the arm but still followed her to the girls bathroom anyways.

Later that day after class, Luna and I were at her dorm room, scarfing down a tub of Ben & Jerry's as we binge watched a bunch of sappy and romantic movies in hopes it would help me get over my current situation.

"Why couldn't Xander just be like all the guys in the movies?" I wailed with a spoo full of ice cream in my mouth and sunk deeper into the sofa.

"Because, boys like that only exist in fantasies." Luna explained with a sigh, taking a spoon of ice cream from the tub as well.

I wiped a tear that fell from my already red and puffy eyes from all the crying I had been doing and replied. "I get that. Like, Xander's kind of a bad boy and I like that about him but I just wished he was a little more affectionate with me, you know?"

"Yes, I know. All girls want that."

"I just wanted him to ride up to my house and hold up a boombox like Lloyd did in Say Anything... or show me how much he loves me like Noah from The Notebook. Hell, I would be happy if he called first for once." I babbled on. "Whatever you and Tyler had, I just wanted that."

"Don't even bring Tyler up right now." She said, shaking her head. "I still haven't gotten over him."

"Why did you guys break up again?" I asked and moved the tub of ice cream onto the coffee table in front of us.

"He moved to New York for college remember? Besides, the long distance thing could never have worked out."

"Aw c'mon, both of you have been friends your whole life and spent all of high school as a couple, you should be getting married and having kids right now."

Luna laughed, her arms finding their way towards my torso as she rested her head on my shoulder. "Too young for marriage and no way am I having kids. After doing it with Tyler, I can only imagine what a baby would do."

"Speaking of having hooking up, do you think Xander broke up with me because I wasn't ready to do it with him yet?"

"It better not be 'cause if so, I'll have no choice but to kick his ass and then have Jordan beat him up to a pulp." She laughed and mused about my older brother.

I pulled my bottom lip in between my teeth and faced Luna. "I kinda haven't told Jordan yet. He hasn't been calling or visiting as often as before, you know?"

"Just... Don't let Xander pressure you into anything you don't wanna do. Look at me and Tyler, I waited a whole year before losing my virginity to him."

"Well Tyler's a good guy and Xander's a big jerk so..." I trailed off with a shrug.

"Hey, don't even stress, you'll find the perfect guy for you soon." She reassured me as a genuine smile was plastered across her face.

"I'm not sure the perfect guy exists, Luna."

She rolled her eyes and then grabbed two pieces of paper and two pens, chucking one at me before she explained. "Alright how about we both write down what our ideal guy would look like. Then, we can go out and search for someone after?"

I nodded my head in agreement and turned around so my back was facing Luna as I started writing down my ideal guy.

The Perfect Boyfriend

• loyal

• has piercings

• must be over six foot in height

• has nice lips and is a good kisser

• smart and intellectual

• has a sense of humor

• affectionate

• isn't afraid to show me off

• loves me as much as i love him

• huge dick & nice butt

"Finished." I announced and laughed at the last point I decided to add to hopefully get a laugh out of my best friend.

We then both exchanged and read each others paper, both of us snickering and grinning at what we wrote.

"I love it."

"Same here but you honestly just described Tyler in your list." I said and watched as Luna rolled her eyes at me.

"You can't stop loving someone, I guess."

It was now two in the morning and as I entered my room to go to bed, I couldn't help but notice how beautiful the night sky was with all the twinkling lights above me. But I also noticed the small piece of paper that Luna had me write a few hours ago.

I scoffed once I finished reading it again and as a shooting star crossed my eyes, I muttered a quick "I wish." before chucking the paper into the bin.

"The perfect guy doesn't exist."

As I laid in bed, I closed my eyes and thought, maybe I didn't need a boyfriend, maybe all I needed was Luna and my brother. I could live with that, right?
