Ok ok.... I’ll tell you but you have to promise not to laugh. I’m serious! It’s her... I know it is. She's the one. Yes the one. How do I know? Because... Sometimes I can’t concentrate on anything but her smile. I can be in a room full of people and feel like I’m the only person there because she’s not by my side. It’s almost comical, I mean.... Do you have any idea what it’s like to have a feeling of complete invincibility but know that your entire world can be shattered by a single word from her!? It’s crazy I know I know, but she’s perfect. No, I get that.... I know that no one's perfect, but she is... She's perfect for me. Her hand fits perfectly into mine and she doesn’t mind that sometimes my hands get sweaty because I get nervous being next to her. Look, I consider myself a pretty confident guy but I feel like I’m just lucky to be in the same room as her or to be breathing the same air as she does. I have no problem putting things into words, yet I can’t explain how when I’m near her, I'll open my mouth to speak but the words never seem to come to life. She's the first girl that’s ever thought of my fear of heights as being cute. Do you have any idea what it’s like to have someone accept your weakness for what it is and not use it against you? It’s strange.... She always calls at the right time. If I’m ever feeling like I’m getting in the way of myself, she can say a few words to remind me of where I was going. You may not believe this but, I can actually tell the moment she walks into a room that I’m in. See... I told you... I knew you wouldn’t believe me. You promised not to laugh and you are.....Why do you think I didn’t want to tell you? Because I knew you'd say that or think I was crazy, whipped, sprung or whatever you want to call it!? Why can’t you just be happy for me that I feel this way? Sure I may have met other girls that might have resembled her but no.... they weren’t on her level. I mean, I’m not saying there was anything wrong with them, they just... they’re not her. She makes me want to be the best version of myself because she deserves nothing but. She’s the only person I know that has an impact on time... No I’m serious, when we're together, time just races away from us, but when we're apart, I swear the hour glass is filled with rocks instead of sand and they’re constantly getting stuck. If I had the option, Id listen to her laugh over and over again, I mean, that sound has quickly become my favorite melody and I’m trying to find the repeat button. I don’t care what you think, I don’t, I just wish that you could understand what I feel inside for her because if you did, you'd know what it’s like to be completely in love with someone and you'd understand why all those love stories and poems were written. You'd know what it’s like to realize that you don’t have to hide, because to her, all of the garbage that I bring is treasure to her. Every flaw of mine, all of my challenges, my shortcomings, and my failures are all things that she considers that to be art to her. I’ve never had that before... I’ve never had someone accept me for the person I am. Do you have any idea what it’s like to know that you don’t have to keep anything hidden from someone because they’ll accept it as just another part of who you are and nothing more. You laugh because you haven’t experienced it yet, but I hope that you do! She’s all I’ve asked for, everything I’ve wanted and.... I don’t know..... You’ve done pretty well so far at not laughing I’m just going to stop there.... What!? No.... She doesn’t know.... She has no idea that I feel this way about her. She doesn’t know yet because I haven’t told her......... I haven’t told her yet because..... I haven’t met her......
