Dear my future girlfriend,
What you’re about to read here is
a little soppy as hell, but hopefully you will understand why this is important to me – I need to ask you for a favour;
I know that the typical response to hearing someone you love say the words ‘I love you’ is to say ‘I love you too’. This is a wonderful thing to hear, and I hope I hear it from you one day. However, there is something else I need to hear, that is just as important to me, in return for saying those three little words to you: I know.
I want to make you feel loved, and wanted, and beautiful, and… everything. Because I’m sure that to me you will be everything, even if I’m too awkward to tell you these things. So please, please tell me you know that I love you, because one of the worst feelings in the world is when you believe no one will ever love you, or that you don’t deserve to be loved. I felt this way before for the longest time, and I need to know that you don’t feel that way – that you don’t feel that pain. I need to know that I’m doing it right.
I don’t feel so hopeless about my situation anymore. I just hope my new found optimism is warranted, and that we may meet each other soon.
