To the next boy who walks into my life...

I don't know who you are. Or maybe I do, but I haven't figured it out yet. Whoever you are, there's a few things I want you to know.

I'm afraid of sleeping closest to the door. I'm scared a robber will get me in the middle of the night. Basically I'm saying you have to sleep by the door because I'm making it your job to protect me from robbers.

I really like Dunkin' Donuts pumpkin and caramel iced coffee with cream and sugar. If I'm ever mad at you, this will typically resolve the argument.

When I'm grumpy I like to be hugged. When I'm sad I like to be hugged. When I'm pissed off I need to be left alone...and then hugged.

I'm very passionate about my future goals. Nothing makes me happier than knowing someone respects what I do and motivates me to be the best me I can be.

The first thing I'll ask of you when I find myself liking you is to not like me. My life is very complicated, and I fear wrapping someone else in it.

If you're up for a challenge, please don't let me push you away because that is my first instinct. But in all honesty, I do want to pursue something with you.

I want you to know that it's not often I let people in, but you obviously possess special qualities that makes me change my mind. As much as that scares me, it gives me so many butterflies at the same time.

I'm very apprehensive toward love, but I welcome it with open arms when it feels genuine. I've been hurt many times, but I'm going to do my best to treat this differently. Not even the worst heartbreak can hold back the love I wish to give to someone.

I have so much to offer. As much as I want a rock in my life, I want to be your rock too. I'd love nothing more than to give you everything you deserve.

Unfortunately, I will test your patience, annoy you, pick on you, and everything in between. I hope you're up for that if you wish to invest time into me.

If you do, please don't give up on me. I'm willing to do everything I can to make sure my past does not interfere with the right person. As much as I'll test you, I'll do everything I can to put a smile on your face. I have a lot to give to the right man.

I'm sorry you'll have to sleep by the door, buy me iced coffee, and hug me a lot, but if you're willing to persevere through all of that, I'd love for you to be in my life.
