An Open Letter to My Boyfriend

My Love

December 2017

I love you so much. I have no words to describe my awe for you. Since the day we swiped right on each other, I have been so blessed that you came into my life. But, let me ask you (the reader) this, have you ever met someone that, from the very first moment you laid eyes on them, you're whole world had stopped and everything seemed to have changed in a blink of the eye. If so, then you know exactly how I feel for Tyler. I was going through so much in those few months before I met you, I was going through a hard breakup, and school was so stressful. And you somehow made everything so much better. When you came and picked me up to go to the gym for our first time meeting. I was so nervous, I was jumping out of my skin. I hid in the bathroom when you rolled up to my house, that's how scared I was. I was scared of the outcome, because everyone says that Tinder is just for hooking up. Some of the guys that swiped right on me were just asking to have sex or some stupid shit like that. You have somehow made me feel so special every day since then. You are my best friend, and my one and only. I know we've only been together for 5, almost 6 months, and only knowing each other for a month beforehand. I love you more today than I did yesterday. And I'll love you more tomorrow than I do today. I always hate those days when you feel as if I don't love you but that's not true! And I don't want you feeling that way EVER! You make me feel wonderful. I have been through a lot in my 18, almost 19 years of being alive. Starting with Dad completely walking out of my life, once he had a new kid. Every moment we spend together is another one of my dreams coming true. There isn't a day when we hang out, that we don't end up making one memory, for example, when I spoiled you with The Melting Pot. I know I overreact a lot, and I'm sorry. It's just how I am as a person, I'm so fearful that I might say or do something to make you lose feelings for me. I'm worried you won't want me anymore. I was scared to love you at first, out of fear that you would hurt me, but I did and it's the best thing I've ever done. Now, I only fear of waking up and this all being a dream. You complete me. You make my life so amazing and I don't know how else to repay you but to love you as much as you love me. And I am so proud of the person you have become since we met, you're such a strong and independent guy. And it's amazing because you're only twenty years old, and you're living on your own, and paying your own bills. You're so mature for your age, and I'm proud of who you've become since college. One thing I love that you do is, you make me feel beautiful and wanted. I have never felt like that by a man before, and now I know what it feels like to be truly loved and cared for by a man. I am so thankful for what we have. You are the only man I ever want to share my life with. I could never imagine what it would be like if we were to lose each other. I don't even want to think about it. If we ever get into an argument, I'm always afraid one day you'll get tired of me. I know you say that you never want to leave unless I leave you, but I'm still afraid. You are the love of my life, and I love you and I will until the day I die. Hopefully, when that day comes, I will still have you by my side. I know this is a lot to say at this point, but I want to grow old with you, and create a future for us, with children and living with each other. And I know I sound crazy for saying all of this, but it's the truth. And I don't care what anyone else says about it. When I'm older, I'll look back at the way we argued about things that were so insignificant and we'll laugh and know that our love was strong enough to overcome every argument. I just want you to know that I'm thankful that you came into my life, and I will love you until the end of my days. I'm still crazy for you baby, and I always will. I love you so much.
