Dating was a mess even before Tinder existed. In fact, it was even a mess when you were seven, and if your mom found out that you wanted to kiss someone you would get in trouble. Current sixteen-year-old Madie Cardon tweeted several diary entries that she wrote when she was seven, and they went viral because the emotions are intense.
The entries read:
I don’t know if I can do this anymore. I think I have deppresion. Today at school my crush riley was chasing other girls on the playground! I thout he liked me.
And guess who he was chasing! Jessica! She is such a player! She hugs at least 5 boys every day!
I am so mad at her. I think I will tell riley her secret. She wears pull ups! After he finds out he won’t like her anymore.
My deppresin is getting strong. Today is Valentine’s Day. I made Riley a valentine. Me and Kateyln stayed up all night makin it.
Before Riley got to school I put it in his desk. (number 22 <3)
When he got to school he looked in his desk and found my box. I wrote anomious on it so he didn’t now it was from me.
Right when he looked at it throw away. I am still cring. I have deppresion.
"My deppresin is getting strong." Finally the heartbreaking conclusion:
Worst day ever. Riley told me he likes Jessica. I am done with boys. I want to kill all of them.
Another girl responded with her own diary:
It proves that chasing someone around the playground=universal second grade move.
