No. I don’t want a boyfriend who’s gunna give me his sweater when I’m cold. He’d freeze his butt off. No. I don’t want a boyfriend who will pay for everything I want. That’s what my job’s for. No. I don’t want a boyfriend who calls me at 4am telling me he misses me. I’m sleeping, and he probably wants to be too. No. I don’t want a boyfriend who is going to drop every corny line in the book. I just want someone sincere and truthful. I don’t want your fairy-tale boyfriend who will sweep me off my feet. I just want a boyfriend who loves me for me, for every mistake.
Being together isn’t about a honeymoon. It’s about the real you and me. I want to wake up with you beside me in the mornings, I want to spend my evenings looking at you across the dinner table. I want to share every mundane detail of my day with you and hear every detail of yours. I want to laugh with you and fall asleep with you in my arms. Because you aren’t just someone I loved back then. You were my best friend, my best self, and I can’t imagine giving that up again… You might not understand but I gave you the best of me, and after you left nothing was ever the same.. I know you’re afraid, and I’m afraid too. But if we let this go, if we pretend none of this ever happened, then I’m not sure we’ll ever get another chance. We’re still young. We still have time to make this right…We still have the rest of our lives.
