To my person:
You know how supposedly most girls go through that college hook up phase? I did. Do you know what I got out of it? Nothing. I got hurt- feelings like I wasn't good enough. That's not the truth; I am good enough and I'm worth more than those situations- I know that now.
It takes a special kind of man to deal with everything that comes along with my personality. I need somebody that can deal with my need to be involved in way too many things at once. A man that can deal with his woman being too independent sometimes. A man that can applaud his woman for doing good. A man that can stand up and do something great for himself and others. You gotta love the insanity and adventurous spirit that's set deep in my heart. You're probably a bit insane also and that's why I'll love you.
My person, you're there for me when I've had too much to drink and just need somebody to listen to the newest Lumineers album with me all.the.way.through before I go to sleep. And by God do not make fun of me for working too hard, and for not having sex right away-it's who I am. I do these things for myself because I'm self aware; I know what makes me happy and I know what makes my heart break.
I'm really different from the girls you might have come across. I don't settle. Ever. I'm not happy with comfort. You'll understand that in order to be my person you have to be willing to get uncomfortable all the time. You won't like everything I do; I'm late to social events, and I take too many Instagram pictures. Nonetheless, we will adventure together, love together, succeed together, and fail together. If we're homeless at one point, so be it we've got God working in our favor.
My person, you'll have a genuine heart. You'll have passion like mine. You are growing with me through every obstacle. We might try and split at some point but if it's real we'll find our way back. Conflict will arise and I might yell, I will get moody, I might write a few too many words about you when I'm upset. I'm sorry. That's me. I'm not too much for you, because if I was I wouldn't be your person.
We'll have fun together. Drinks on a Monday night, church on Sunday, hard work everyday, and coffee at 12am sometimes. You gotta work with it, I gotta work with it. It won't be normal, that's why you're my person.
Thanks in advance for saving your heart for me.
