I love you. I finally mustered up the courage to tell you this. Wow, I feel super proud of myself. Who knew silly old me had it in them to finally express my truest feelings to you, the beautiful, love of my life. I have wanted to say those precious three words to you for so long. I have dreamt of this moment of when I would say it.
We have been dating for a few months and every day when we meet up, I have the most fun around you. We are always laughing and joking around. I’d take the piss out of everything you do and annoy you. When we part ways and go home, I would always call you and stay on the phone until I hear you snoring down the phone. You would never hang up on me and I refused to put the phone down until I knew you was fast asleep.
We know each other so well, I know when something is bothering you and when you are most happy. I know your favourite colour, which is red by the way. I know you are passionate about women’s rights and the welfare state. I even researched topics on the history of the women’s right to vote so that we would have something to discuss after we were done swooning over each other.
I always try my best to impress you, you are so intelligent and worldly and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I am invested in you and you only. I told you I love you and you still have not said it back.
What is taking you so long? I texted you I love you 3 minutes ago and I can see the “read receipt” so I know you have seen it. Do you not feel the same way? Have I jumped the gun on this? Surely not, I could not be so wrong on this, I see it in your eyes when you look at me. I know you love me. So, say it!
Okay, so now it’s been 10 minutes and still no response. Do I text you saying, “just kidding” and brush it under the rug? No. I cannot do that, I would be lying to myself and it would be so obvious to you. Come on, say it back to me please. Don’t leave me hanging like this.
“??” I gave her the two question marks. Right, that should do it. I should get a response now surely. Several minutes go by and still nothing. Fuck. I am so embarrassed, clearly, she was not ready. I’m so sorry, I never meant to put you under so much pressure. I’m such an idiot.
Thirty-Eight excruciating minutes have gone by of me staring at my phone. I have finally calmed my breathing, turned my lock screen on and closed my eyes. My mind goes blank and I feel nothing. My phone suddenly vibrates and I can see the preview of the text and you would not believe what she said to me. She said, “I love you too”.
