A Thank You Letter To My Best Friend, Who Just So Happens To Be My Boyfriend

A Thank You Letter To My Best Friend, Who Just So Happens To Be My Boyfriend

I want to thank you for two full years of love and happiness. I want to thank you for being my best friend and for having my back.


I remember the day we first met. I limped into an office and I saw you, smiling at another patient, and you looked up. When our eyes met I thought to myself, "Oh fuck, he's going to ruin my life." You did ruin it but in the best way possible. The amazing chaos you brought into my life has made me laugh, cry, and want to rip my hair out but every minute has been so worth it. We met and were friends for the LONGEST time because we both were afraid to take a leap. I'm so glad that we finally did take that leap because I get the pleasure of taking leaps with you every day of our life.

I want to thank you for being my best friend before my boyfriend. And I mean that literally. You were my friend first and you gave me someone to trust when I didn't think I could trust someone like I did with you ever again.

Thank you for two years of support and patience. I know I have a bad attitude and baggage. I know that I'm super grumpy in the morning and I need constant love and affection. I know that I'm not the best girlfriend and I have flaws but you truly are the best person I know and you accept me for who I am, as I am.

That doesn't mean you don't have flaws and haven't made mistakes, but they make me love you more because you've grown so much since I've met you. You're an even better man than you were the first day I met you.

I want to thank you for running to pick up tampons when I'm running low, with no excuse or manly awkwardness. You're amazing because you run to the store and pick me up cold medicine and juice when I don't feel well. How you stop to pick me up fruit snacks and juice boxes when I want them because I'm five years old.

I want to thank you for two full years of love and happiness. I want to thank you for being my best friend and for having my back. Here's to many more years together and so many more thank yous.

It's been a great run here at Odyssey. I've written about celebrity relationships, my personal relationship, breakups, and about so many other things. But it's time to move on. In this last article, I wanted to thank my boyfriend for always being there. But I also wanted to thank Odyssey for giving me a space to write my heart out.

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.

We Spend So Much Time Talking About How Much Men Suck In 2019, That We Forget Girls Are Just As Bad

I always talk about how awful guys can be, but let's take a second to talk about how awful my own sex can be, too.


In our culture, we tend to place all the blame on guys in most relationships by saying how "all men suck" but what about girls?

Girls can be just as bad.

I'm constantly saying how bad guys can be but yet I never stop to analyze things I've done that weren't okay or things my fellow female friends have done that was awful.

I'm not innocent either, I've done some terrible things to really nice guys in my life.

There was one man in my life that genuinely cared for me and wanted to date me but I didn't feel the same at all and lead him on. I honestly didn't think I was leading him on at first but the minute I realized it I tried to nicely let him down. To this day I feel awful about it because I hurt him the way many other guys in my life have hurt me.

I tend to defend my own gender a lot in conversations and I now understand that I really shouldn't. I've seen so many of my female friends treat great guys terribly and have ignored it for so long because I want to believe that females can't be that awful. I was wrong.

I've had some of my best guy friends get treated like absolute garbage by girls that wanted to just party and partake in the hookup culture rather than be with a great guy. I don't get it.

If you have a great man that you're attracted to and loves you unconditionally why would you want to throw it away to chase after boys that won't remember your name the next day?

I've had to keep secrets for friends before that ate me up inside. I had a friend who cheated on her boyfriend by kissing another man in front of me and kept it quiet.

It is NEVER okay to do that to someone, especially a guy that truly cares about you.

It is NOT OK to be on dating apps while dating someone. If you are dating someone, you're exclusive. There is no need to continue talking to men that obviously don't want to just be your friend. There is no good excuse and if you have to try and justify it to yourself, then it's probably not a good idea.

I honestly made myself believe that females didn't play the games men play with our hearts, but we can be just as bad if not worse than a lot of men.
