here’s a tip: if you start dating a depressed person, don’t be surprised if they are still depressed while they are dating you.
they’re not depressed because they’re single, and you are not an all-powerful cure for mental illnesses. just be there for them.

When Yumichika first met Ikkaku, his friend-to-be was pouting. Of course, to most eyes, including Yumichika’s, it didn’t look much like it. It simply looked as if he was scowling at the boy he’d just beaten in a fist fight. He turned to Yumichika, expression unchanged, and demanded, “What are you looking at?”
It wasn’t until much later that Yumichika came to realize that Ikkaku just had peculiar lips. They stretched tight over his teeth, so even a pout became a scowl. They were expressive, though, when Ikkaku spoke. When he made an “o” sound, his bottom lip puckered and became full for the briefest of moments.
Oftentimes Yumichika couldn’t go a day without remarking on Ikkaku’s chrome dome. But never once did he share his observations of his lips. They were private, meticulous, and probably unwelcome. He would continue to observe, fingers twitching occasionally, mysteriously.
