This is how you’re going to love me.
You’re going to fall right in.
You’re going to realize immediately that I care really fast and all at once.
I’ve tried being the aloof, mysterious girl you’ll have to chase.
But I’m not.
You’re going to appreciate that.
You’re going to love that I never played games with you- that I never made your mind reel and question what I want.
You’re going to be scared by how open I am, it’s going to all feel like too much.
But you’ll know pretty quickly how rare it is to find someone as vulnerable yet strong as I am.
I’m going to ask you hard questions, push you to open up, say things that catch you off guard and lay it all out on the line.
You’ll be ready to handle that.
You will answer every question with thought and tell me stories until 3 am when our eyes are shutting against our will.
You will be strong enough to know what I’m offering and handle every piece of my heart with care.
You will know exactly what you’re giving to me and trust me not to give up on you.
You’re going to learn about me.
Why trust doesn’t come easy to me, what I’m scared of, what I’ve struggled through… it will make you understand why I became this version of myself.
You’re going to tell me how you’ve become the person you are.
We are going to want to know everything about each other.
We are going to ask questions.
You’re going to laugh as hard as I do about the silly things and fight for your beliefs and values.
You’re going to show kindness to everyone around you and unknowingly make me a better person.
Being around me is going to do the same.
We will empower each other, support each other and laugh with each other.
You’re going to get mad at me but you won’t leave, you’ll be the first person to stay.
Because differences will happen but we both will choose to work through them.
You’ll stay because you’ll choose to love me through the hardest parts of life and dance with me through the highlight reel of life.
You’ll become my best friend and my number one fan.
You’re going to love the simplicity of being together.
You will look at me with that “she’s the one I choose” look and it will give me butterflies.
You will find that I give too much, dream really big and love deeper than you’ve ever experienced.
You’re not going to hold back.
And the idea of love is not going to scare you after a while- maybe it will seem like a lot at first- but no, you’re going to see me standing before you and you’re going to know that if there is one place you will be for the rest of your life, it will be by my side.
I can’t wait to be by yours.
