This is the problem with romanticizing “all-consuming” love. Melissa said she wanted a love that was “all-consuming.” Nobody should want that. Love cannot consume everything. You shouldn’t be consumed by anyone else, ”she began.
You shouldn’t feel that the emotions you share with that person are so overwhelming that you can literally be swallowed up by them. That is not healthy. It’s not okay. It’s not how a positive and healthy relationship works. ‘
Clementine continued, “Bryce played with her on that. He toyed with the idea that intensity equals quality of love and it is not. And that’s how people like Bryce trick people like Melissa into saying they’re against the world. ‘

“I’ve never met anyone who immediately puts a smile on my face like when I see you enter a room,” Bryce said, staring at Melissa’s eyes.
From the time I first met you, you have been nothing but loyal and understanding and have stood by me through good times and bad.
