If you give a boy your heart, he probably won't ask for milk like a mouse might.
But, here's what I learned when you give a boy your heart:
You see every side of them. You see them happy, you see them cry. You see them angry, you see them shy. When you give a boy your heart, you give your trust. You give your time, effort, patience, and really, you give yourself. And I mean that in the best way possible. I give myself and all my effort into my relationship. And I learned that it totally pays off.
I never believed in love at first sight. Then, I met HIM. I met the guy that flipped my world upside down. He drives me crazy, in literally every sense of the way. Every goal I ever had as a kid when I dreamed of Prince Charming, he embodies. He's everything to me. Maybe that sounds codependent.
But here's the thing...I WANT him around. I want him to do everything with me. I want him to be there when I go to the grocery store (he always picks the best cookies out, honestly). I want him to be there when I go to the doctor's.
I don't know why! But his very presence calms me down, chills out my nerves. I want him there when I get my hair done, because he makes it more fun. But more than that, he makes me a better me.
My favorite shows are just that much funnier when he's with me. His laugh is contagious, and he brightens up my every day. It's weird. I thought I had been in love before. But that seems like an eternity ago. Nothing else matters. Not the past, not your mistakes, nothing.
You are who you are because of your experiences. The right person doesn't care. They love you for who you are. And when I met him...I realized that everything I thought I knew about love was totally wrong. And that's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Love isn't roses every day. It's not going out every night to lavish dinners. It's giving them that last French fry you wanted. It's about doing things together. Because doesn't matter what you're doing....as long as you're with them. Love is waking up in the morning to their bed head (which is totally adorable). It's when in their sleep, they pull you a little closer to them.
The smallest gestures become the grandest displays of affection when you're with the right person. That's why I wear a ring on my finger. Because in my deepest heart of hearts, I know that he was made for me.
“He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
He's my best friend. Maybe that sounds crazy to you. People tell me all the time that "it's the honeymoon phase," it won't last. People say, "You're too young. Too young to know." But you know what? This is the happiest I've ever been. I consider myself lucky to have found my soul mate so young in life.
Some people are never even that lucky. So, say what you want, but I will forever cherish what I have with him. Because I am more me than I ever have been. More confident, more alive, more everything. And for that, I am thankful.
So, when you give a boy your heart, you gain so much more than you could imagine. Because If you're lucky enough...he might just give you his too.
