A Letter to you, my Boyfriend
There was a time when I believed I would never find a man whose personality could complement mine. A man who would understand my sarcasm, yet know when it was time to take something serious. A man who would not take everything to heart when something was meant to be harmless. A man who loves with everything he has, but is not clingy or jealous. And a man who can see a bright and happy present and future.
There was a time when you were someone who was a stranger to me. Someone that I could pass in the store and not even acknowledge. Someone who I didn't worry or dream about. You did not cross my mind dozens of times each day or wiggle your way into almost every thought I have about my future.
There was a time when I did not consider your likes or dislikes before preparing a meal. I did not wonder if your day at work was going well or what time you would finally get home. Nor did I care if your work clothes got cleaned. Your days off were not something I took into consideration before picking up a shift or making plans with other people.
There was a time where my future consisted of just myself. I considered only what I wanted and where I someday hoped to be. I considered my likes and dislikes and the things that make my life fulfilling. My sole purpose was to take care of my own well-being.
There was a time before you when I did not know that there were people as kind as you, because you really are the nicest and most understanding person I have ever met. A time when I did not know how encouraging someone could be. I did not know how caring someone could be. I did not know how considerate someone could be. You have showed me so many things though.
I could write an entire book containing the many things I love about you, but that would likely become boring. So a letter of appreciation will have to do for now. Keep doing all that you do because you are an amazing man.
