Difference between anybody and somebody seems to puzzle many as most of the time they are regarded as words with similar meanings. Hence, they are interchanged wrongly. Strictly speaking, they should not be interchanged since they are to be construed as two different words that convey different meanings.
The word anybody is used in negative and interrogative sentences while the word somebody is used in affirmative sentences. Also, both somebody and anybody are pronouns. Both somebody and anybody refer to an unidentified person.
The word anybody is used in the sense of anyone. Also, anybody is used in negative and interrogative sentences. Observe the two sentences given below.
Did you see anybody?
I don’t know anybody in this area.
In both the sentences, you can find that the word anybody is used in the sense of ‘anyone.’ Hence, the meaning of the first sentence would be ‘anyone can do this.’ In the same way, the meaning of the second sentence would be ‘anybody can lift this box’. In these sentences, the word anybody is used to refer to a person without identifying which person that is. Also, you will see that usually anybody is used in negative sentences and interrogative sentences.
It is important to know that the word anybody is used in the special sense of ‘possibility’ as you can see from the sentence ‘anybody can do this’. In this sentence, you get the special idea that there is a possibility that anyone can do it.
The word somebody is used in the sense of someone. Moreover, somebody is used in affirmative sentences. Observe the two sentences given below.
Somebody should come forward to do it.
Somebody may answer this question.
In both the sentences, you can see that the word somebody is used in the sense of someone. Hence, the meaning of the first sentence would be ‘someone should come forward to do it.’ In the same manner, the meaning of the second sentence would be ‘someone may answer this question’. You can see that in both of these sentences, the speaker uses the word somebody to speak about a person without identifying him or her. As you can see somebody is used in affirmative sentences.
On the other hand, the word somebody is used in the special sense of ‘hope’ as you can see in the sentence ‘somebody may answer this question’. In this sentence, you can see that some sort of hope is expressed that someone may answer the question
I always thought that waiting for somebody was the ultimate proof of love. But, when your love consists only of waiting, you know you are not on the right track.
It seems like all you do is wait. You wait for him to change his mind. You wait for him to man up. You wait for him to come to his senses. You wait for him to realize how much you love him. You wait for him to realize that he loves you too, that he is scared. You wait for the time to be right. You wait for a miracle. You wait and you get so tired of waiting.
The only thing you gain from waiting patiently is wasted time. It can take months or even years to pass till you realize that you are waiting for someone who will never come.
Somebody who really doesn’t want to catch up.There are people who make you wait and there are those you choose to wait for. The ones who make you wait are usually just self-centered manipulators that are exploring their options while keeping you close by.
They give you just enough to hold on, an occasional text or a call, but never too much to feel like they are truly there. So you get used to it, and you are happy with the crumbs of attention they serve you.
Then, there are those you choose to wait for. They hurt the most because by waiting for them, you are deliberately hurting yourself. It’s completely your choice to be patient and hopeful.
If he left, you are waiting for him to come back. You hope he will have a change of heart and realize he was meant to be with you all along.
Or maybe he was never with you but you are hoping that someday he might notice you. You are putting those people on a pedestal for no reason, and they don’t even know they are there. You might not even be sure what you are waiting for. You are scared that it might never happen but you are unwilling to let go of the feeling.
The only truth here is that if he was truly worthy, he wouldn’t keep you waiting. He wouldn’t let you wonder about his feelings—he would show them openly.
You wouldn’t have to ask for his attention—he would give it freely. Waiting for somebody means not giving a chance to somebody else. For somebody who would give you all you want right away.n the end, it’s all about you. You have to love and respect yourself enough and not wait for anything or anybody.
You are the only one who can control your life. Everything is about your choices. You chose to wait. You chose to delude yourself that something is there when it really isn’t. Deep down, you know he is not worth waiting for and that things are very unlikely to change.
You can also choose to let go of everything at any given moment. So, choose not to wait. Move on. Love doesn’t keep you waiting. If it’s real, you will both be on the same page at exactly the same time. Love rushes in like a tornado and sweeps you off your feet— it doesn’t ask you to stand still and wait.
If you’re smart and if you respect and love yourself, you won’t wait for him. You’ll give him one or two second chances, but those will be the last ones you’ll give. You won’t leave without a warning because you’re not that kind of a girl.
You’ll give him that one more chance to set things right, to make amends, but if he blows up once again, don’t wait for him and just leave. Don’t wait for him to change because he won’t. People don’t change that easily. Actually, I’m not even sure if it’s possible.
They may fool you and pretend they have turned another page, but in essence, deep down inside, people stay the same.The only difference is that after they’ve ‘changed’, they don’t say the things they want to say out loud and they don’t do the things they want to do because they want to fool you into thinking they are not their old selves.
You can’t buy this crap. You can believe it, but not for long. So believe me, it’s better to cut him loose right away than to wait and be disappointed after you find out that he was lying to you that whole time.
A relationship where you have to wait for him to change something in his life, his behavior or even worse, his personality, is a relationship that is set to fail from the start. There is no point in trying.
Don’t wait for him to come to his senses. This could last for so long. And all that time, you’re going to get even more hurt than you already are while you humor him and grant every wish he has.
As long as you keep trying and acting like nothing is happening, he won’t realize that his behavior is shit. He’ll keep on neglecting you because he sees that you’re okay with that.
If you keep on waiting for him and letting him treat you the way you don’t deserve, you’ll let him wound your heart so hard that you’re going to spend months trying to heal.
Who knows? Maybe he is not that someone you’re supposed to be with. Maybe you’re settling and you don’t even know it. Maybe there is something so much better out there for you.
You just have to cross the first obstacle. You have to be brave enough to pass the test. So, no, don’t wait for him to come to his senses.
Don’t wait for him to treat you as a priority. You shouldn’t come second. You should never be someone’s back up plan and now it seems like you’re his.
When you fall in love, it’s supposed to be the best experience of your life. Love is supposed to evoke feelings you don’t want to end, emotions you want to fall asleep with and get up in the morning feeling.
But if love makes you feel unwanted and makes you beg for attention, then it’s not real love and he is not the man for you.
He should always put you first. If he loves you, he should show it to you. Those three little words are surely nice to hear, but if they are not supported by actions, then they don’t mean anything.
Don’t wait for him to show respect. You’ve earned your respect and if he can’t see that, he is not the man for you.
Maybe he thinks it’s normal to act that way, but a strong and independent woman such as yourself doesn’t have to put up with it. You won’t have any problems finding someone who will value you. You will find him in a heartbeat, while he…he may have lost the only chance to be loved in his lifetime.
You deserve a man who appreciates your hard work and how much time and effort you’re investing in everything you’re passionate about. You deserve a man who believes in you and stands by your side in everything you do.
You deserve someone who’ll see how hard you’re trying, someone who will hug you at the end of the day and hold you to help you get your strength back. One day, he’ll see you with another man, happy and smiling.
He’ll see a spark in your eyes he never saw before and then it will hit him. It will suddenly dawn on him what a complete idiot he was. But, then it will be too late. He’ll try to win you back and he’ll fail.
Don’t wait for him to regret losing you. Don’t stick around for so long. Go on and continue with your life without him in it. You’re better off without him anyway. You deserve better than him anyway. Just make the first move and the rest will come.
Although there are a lot of fish in the sea, not every fish is your fish. Every person has their own match or better said, there is a lid for every pot. Keeping that in mind, here are some tips to tell you which guy is truly worth the wait. Read them, remember them and practice them and maybe you will succeed in distinguishing HIM from the others.
No doubt you will date a lot of ‘wrong ones’ but those may only be wrong for YOU until you find the special one, ‘the right one’, the right one for YOU. This is the guy who truly deserves you because as he is, you are also worth the wait. Therefore, don’t settle but aim higher.
And remember this, it’s easy to laugh at his jokes while you are in the ‘honeymoon phase’, but the perfect guy will never stop making you laugh and his jokes will never seem boring. He is in it for the long haul.
This guy will treat you the way you deserve and you deserve the best, so he will make sure nothing is ever missing from your life until the end. He won’t do it just when he is in the mood or just feeling happy for no reason. He will do it even if his day has been awful but he won’t let your day go to hell as well. Just because he loves you truly, madly, deeply.
This guy will kiss you for no reason and out of the blue. He will shower you with love when you least expect it. He will show you that he loves you at any moment and every day. He will come to you while you are taking a shower just to kiss you or he will magically appear in the kitchen while you are cooking to do the same.
He will kiss you not just because he feels like it but because he senses you want or need him to. You need a guy who is an adrenaline junkie. This especially goes for those girls who feel like they are sometimes stuck in a boring, endless routine.
This guy won’t let that happen. He will mix things up a bit because it’s in his nature. You won’t be bored because he will always have some kind of a plan for both of you.
But there is a catch and you should look out for it! These kinds of guys avoid commitment because that’s the way they are. If you succeed in ‘catching’ one, you are one lucky girl.
This guy has to be the one who challenges you on an intellectual level. That doesn’t mean he has to be smarter than you. It just means that he has to be different from you.
If you are dating a guy who is the same as you, who agrees with you in every possible way, where is the excitement? Where are those short, passionate discussions you are going to have?
Him being different means you will have always something to talk about and to agree with or disagree on. And don’t forget, after a passionate fight comes passionate makeup sex!
The guy you are waiting for has to inspire you to do things and to be creative in any way. He needs to be ambitious and he needs to make you want more. He will help you in making your dreams come true because by his side you will feel the need to get things going. He will give you the boost you need.
The hardest thing is to start something but once you’ve got going, no one can stop you. He will be proud of you. He will be proud of all your accomplishments, no matter how small or big they are.
He will talk to his friends about what you did because he will feel like that is his success as well as yours. He will not be ashamed of you in any way. He will take you to all the places where he goes and loves. He will hold your hand in public and he will kiss you in public because he is not afraid to say to the world that you are his honey!
This guy will respect your family and friends because he knows how much they mean to you. He will please them because he knows you love them.
If he dislikes them he will never show it to you or them. That’s how much he loves you. Your perfect guy will always say yes to everything you suggest because he will never doubt you. In every little thing you want to do, he will support you.
And he will support you because he trusts you. If you did something that didn’t turn out so well, he will comfort you and tell you that there is time to fix it and do it all over again. And he will be there for you once more, from the start.
He will work on your relationship as you will and you will notice that. He will take you out for a romantic dinner and he will buy you flowers for no special reason. And I suggest that you should do the same.
Love isn’t a one-way street and you shouldn’t expect it to be. So if you want to find your perfect guy, you should know that you have to give something in order to expect something in return.
