This is my long overdue love letter to you.
A few days ago, we were watching a movie together. We were snuggling with our arms around each other. Your head fit perfectly in the crook of my neck while mine rested on top of yours. It was a moment of complete bliss. Then, you looked up at me and asked me a question I had no answer to. You asked me why in the world someone extraordinary like me was so deep in love with someone ordinary like you. And I had no idea how to answer your question. To me, it isn’t even a valid question!
You, my dear boyfriend, are not ordinary at all. You are the most beautiful human being I have ever had the pleasure to meet. And loving you is the easiest and the most natural thing to me. Loving you is not any different than living.
Unfortunately, all my words flew right out of the window and disappeared amongst the clouds that day. I left you hanging without an answer and if I know you well enough (which I obviously do), with a whole lot of self-doubt and insecurity.
You’re so precious that compliments actually make you uncomfortable!
Love, you are well aware of the embarrassing part of our story. It was love at first sight for me. We talked continuously for six hours while ignoring everyone else from our book club. It is extremely rare for two introverts to talk so much. I knew even back then that you were a special one which is exactly why I developed the most embarrassingly obvious crush on you that continued for six whole months before you even noticed.
I was an arguably hot and interesting 20-year old. The fact that I spent six months of my life crushing on a guy who saw me as nothing more than a friend means that the guy is a special snowflake. I mean, have you ever seen yourself get excited about a video game? Your enthusiasm is so pure and so infectious!
In all the time that we have spent together (which is a lot), we have never met a dog who immediately did not fall in love with you and start following you around. You’re a dog whisperer and both of us agree that dogs are excellent judges of character. Believe it or not, you’re amazing. I mean, you’re so precious that compliments actually make you uncomfortable!
You’re everyone’s 3 am friend.
You are one of those rare men who can cry without feeling ashamed. You’re a male feminist who always looks patriarchy in the eye and tells it to get lost. Do you have any idea how hot that is? Despite all your insecurities and issues, you are comfortable enough in your own skin to not need male privilege to boost your ego.
Now that we’ve been dating for some time, I have become friends with all your friends and you’ve become buddies with mine. One thing I have grown to really appreciate and love about you is your kindness and your willingness to help people. You’re everyone’s 3 am friend.
You still don’t believe me, do you? You still don’t think that you’re this amazing person who deserves all the love in the world. Don’t worry, I have an entire lifetime to convince you otherwise and I promise you that I will never ever stop trying. I have complimented you enough to make you uncomfortable for a week but this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. I could write you a thousand such letters (and I plan on doing just that) and yet I still wouldn’t be able to do justice to you. Yes, you’re that awesome.
With loads of love,
Your extraordinary girlfriend!
