I wanted to write something to you, for you, I’m not sure whether to publish this or whether it’s something that shouldn’t be shared publicly, but you know I wear my heart on my sleeve, so, here goes…
Thank you. Thank you for being you, thank you for making me the greatest version of myself. For your continuous support, your unconditional love and affection, there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t know how much you love me, you show it in every way, so even though you know I adore you, here’s a note to say thank you!
Call me crazy but I knew I loved you before I’d even met you, we met on Tinder but we didn’t meet for a few weeks as you were in Singapore. We spoke on the phone for hours everyday. Every time you messaged me I had butterflies in my stomach; I longed to hear your voice, to receive your text. I felt like I missed you, which was crazy because we’d never even met. What’s even crazier is that I fell head over heels in love with you, with the person you were, you opened up and showed me the real you, and for that, I loved you. I had a feeling that you where about to come along and change everything, in the best way possible, and you did.
My friends told me to be careful, to be cautious, and although I was weary to guard my heart I couldn’t rein in my feelings, I was ready to jump in the deep end with you because I just had this feeling, and I knew it was right. I knew we were right. The second I met you I knew this was it. When you know, you know, right? And I knew. I knew that I loved you, and that you felt the same, and although we didn’t say it to each other for quite some time, the way you looked at me spoke volumes. You made me feel like a princess, and still do everyday.
You are the kindest, most gentle soul that I know, you make me laugh everyday, most times to the point of tears and in you; I’ve found my best friend. A friendship and love that I will cherish forever. When we first met, everyone kept asking me what you were like, and the only way that felt right to describe you was ‘the male version of me’, our humour is so aligned (and on point naturally, ha!), I’ve never felt so comfortable around someone before, in you I knew I’d found my soul mate, lover and best friend.
In the words of the infamous Jerry – ‘you complete me’, and you really, truly do. I mean yeah, I’m sassy and independent and I don’t need no man to make me happy. I have a job that I love and can financially support myself, when we first met I made it quite clear that I wanted nothing from you, I told you (drunkenly one night) how I wanted to be with you because I wanted to, not because I needed you. It’s the most incredible feeling to be independent but oh boy, it’s the best feeling to explore the world with you at my side.
I’m writing this post for you on the plane home from our trip together to Singapore, a magical 9 days that we got to spend together. From waking up with you by my side everyday, to watching Singapore come alive at night from the infinity pool at MBS, to trying all of your favourite foods and re-living your childhood with you. I’m sitting here getting teary, listening to our song from when we first started talking, you’re sitting behind me (and I’m glad because I’m feeling soppy AF and the guy next to me keeps looking at me strangely for crying.. LOL).
I thank my lucky stars everyday that Tinder brought us together, as much as a bloody hate that app, it brought me you, my love and for that I’m so incredibly thankful.
I love you always BC!
*Disclaimer… sorry for the soppy post guys and if you thought it was TMI – I believe it’s so important to tell our loved ones everyday how much we love them. I truly hope that you have someone equally as amazing in your life, in fact I know you do.. it’s YOU! <3
