I Know We Hate Being THAT Couple, But Let Me Have This Moment To Be THAT Girlfriend

I Know We Hate Being THAT Couple, But Let Me Have This Moment To Be THAT Girlfriend

Rule #1: NO PDA!


Do you ever hang out with someone for the first time and then, you just know you want to see them again?

That's what happened when I met my boyfriend.

He made me laugh so much that I knew right away he would be worth keeping around for a long time. But, let's back up for a second. You see, we both thought that it would just be a one-time kind of deal, as if we had intentions to hang out again (college, am I right?). That thought only lasted for so long until I already started planning when I would have the time to see him again.

Back in high school, my mom told me the story of how she knew my dad was the one. She got the sign, and it felt like magic. She assured me that when I meet the one for me, I will know in an instant. It will feel right. It will not always be easy, but it will be worth it.

And, I took that advice to heart no matter how anti-relationship I once was.

Yes, I knew that I wanted to date my boyfriend before he could even decide for himself whether or not he liked me in that way. I played it cool for as long as I could. I expected nothing more and nothing less. I went with the flow, but I did hit the point where I wondered, "So what now?"

Despite how dysfunctional our relationship started, we figured how to make it work together. I think we did not expect that from each other. We had lower expectations, like thinking we would only last a few months since becoming "official." The good news is we beat the odds!

Being in a relationship with this dude has been quite an adventure. There's absolutely no way that I would ever trade it for the world.

There was this very brief stint where I had convinced myself that I could not really handle being in a relationship. I started to find a flaw in everything. When I told him that I felt like it was not working out for any more, he was willing to let me go just so I could be happy. And, that did kill me because he did not think twice about it. All he wanted for me was to be happy. If it meant that he couldn't be a part of my life, he was going to accept it.

That's when it hit me like a truck: he is the one

All the major things, all the little things, they all make me so appreciative of him. Listening to long rants. Letting me pick the restaurant. Getting excited with me over school-related stuff. Supporting me in everything I do. Giving me pep talks when I really low. Sharing memes with me on the daily. I could go on and on forever.

For my boyfriend to be so genuine and selfless, I knew I picked an ultimate keeper. And, I hope he's okay with being stuck with for a very long time.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.
