Before you ask me the question that I have dreamed about my entire life, I need to make sure that we’re on the same page. See there are things about me that sometimes I wonder if you’re really ready to embrace. I get that you love me and that I love you but I need to know that you can accept all of the qwerks and aspects that make me me.
You need to know that I love passionately. When I love it comes from the tips of my toes to the tops of my head. I don’t hold back and I am willing to walk out on a plank without any reserves. I tend to wear my heart out on my sleeve and while I don’t want my feelings hurt – I know that it’s a possibility. So don’t call me overly sensitive and tell me that I need to love less because I only know one way to love – and that is passionately with all my heart.
With that in mind, please don’t hesitate to give me feedback. You’ll probably refer to my need for constructive criticism as nagging but that’s not what I’m after. I want to continue to grow as an individual. The feedback I learn along the way will help craft me into a good wife, mother, daughter, friend, and over all individual. So seriously, if I make a disgusting recipe that I found on Pinterest – tell me! Or you’ll be stuck eating that creation for years to come.
And keep in mind that I have OCD tendencies in theory. It does make a difference if the closet isn’t color and season coded or if the shirts are not folded the right way – also known as yes, my way! Believe me when I tell you that I will have nightmares of laundry fairies attacking the house. I will try to compromise as much as possible but probably only if I think you have a valid point – and keep in mind I may know that you’re right but, choose not to admit to it openly.
But when I say that I really don’t care, can you please believe me and not start an argument. I will seriously let you know when something is bothering me and I promise not to assume you have psychic abilities to read my mind. Oh and yes, I cry when I hear sad stories or watch a film that involves romance. Yes, I believe that loves like The Notebook’s Noah and Ali really exists. And yes, I believe that Eva Mendez has single handedly canceled out any and all chances of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams from ever getting back together – and that makes me sad. So don’t call me sappy and overly sensitive because romantic flicks send me into tears. I just believe in love that's magical.
And last but certainly not least, know that I truly believe you’re the person for me and that I’ve known this, or at least had an inkling of this, since the moment I met you. While I don’t believe in love at first sight, I do believe that everyone has someone out there that’s waiting to connect. I believe that every person, in the world, is meant for someone. And at some point in life you’ll meet that special person who changes your life forever. And I'm thankful that person is you!
