A Letter To My Beloved Marine

Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours.

A pre-vow to your pre-proposal (the one I'm not supposed to tell anyone about). A little late for that, I'm kinda sorry.

You don't like public displays of affection; you like to keep our love private, intimate.

Just me and you.

Is it believable to say you hate photo shoots and taking pictures?

Well trust me...you do. You do them for me and you tell me every single time it's just to make me smile.

You don't like clubbing, parties and obnoxious drunk people getting out of hand; you like drinking around a bonfire with the only people you actually care about and worth your attention.

You don't like being busy all day and having to worry about 50 things; you like pretty much to have a relaxing day other than your obvious job in the Marines.

You hate... HATE... HATE being questioned. With you, there should never be a question, you show your commitment endlessly every single day.

You're great, fantastic, amazing actually...at pushing everyone away even me. You've pushed me to the absolute edge & yet I'm still here. Still fighting & still not letting it get to me but it has. But I won't tell you of course. Please just stop. I won't stop fighting, I told you I'm still here...

You hate being the center of attention, but you like being the only thing that has my constant attention.

You're hard on yourself...a lot actually...too much...

Don't be.

You are a perfectionist. Everything and when I say everything, I mean all of it has to be perfect and exceed that.

I like that about you, it means you strive to do your hardest especially with factors that mean everything to you.

Everything you hate about yourself. I adore. Not only that but it makes everything about you worthwhile and honestly keeps entertained. Then you get mad at your dumb video games in loosing or when the military likes to surprise you mandatory meetings or random stuff you have to do when you're on your way to my place. (Yeah, I was mad that day too. I only got to see you for an hour that day)

You send me good morning and goodnight texts every single day. No matter if we are upset, it may be a smaller one, but we still send them at the end or start of our days. Our relationship isn't the same as anyone else's. Yes, I know everyone says that. But ours is different. We actually don't need anyone else. We are happy with each other.

We are all we need.

We cannot do distance at all!!! Never... again. We did it as I was at college and later on when you went to training for K9 in Texas. (Yeah, that one was a hard one...I didn't know how to play it out. I'm sorry for anything.) We don't need to go out. We actually do the exact words Netflix and chill, nothing else. We chill so hard we sleep and we love it. We try for each other in everything we do.

Most importantly, you made this life worth living. I tell you over and over I'm glad no one was deserving of your heart but me. You're sweet. You're sensitive. You are tough to get through, you don't want to let anyone in because you've been hurt. You let me in and you tell me I'm always holding your heart and that right there was the mission impossible.

I guess I am here to say thank you for being my best friend. We have so much fun together by just watching TV, cuddling, or even just on our road trips. We even laugh when we are in the middle of a make-out session because I'm clumsy and probably bumped my toe or head. Thank you for loving me and letting me love you, every aspect of you.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
