To The Ones Who Will Love Her After Me:
She doesn’t like to be scared. Don’t make her watch horror movies, don’t sneak up on her, don’t jump out at her, don’t wear scary masks. Seriously, not even as a joke. Just don’t do it.
The first time she tells you how she feels about you she will go all in. Her words will leave you speechless. The raw emotion, the pure honesty of her love, will overwhelm you… it might even terrify you. Don’t be afraid of it though, it’s not an act. She loves hard and all at once. It will grow to be one of your favorite things about her.
Listen to her and don’t with argue her feelings. Enough people have tried to invalidate her, don’t be another one of them.
If she’s having a bad day sending her a picture of a cute puppy or a beautiful house will always bring a smile to her face. Be careful with pictures of babies and weddings though, once she gets started on those she won’t stop.
She loves to get ‘good morning’ texts. Every day when you wake up that should be the first thing you do. Never let a day go by without telling her how incredible she is and how much you love her.
She also loves chocolate. Seriously, showing up and giving her a chocolate milkshake might even be better than flowers.
When she leaves it’s going to be hard. You’ll want to be angry, being angry would make it easier, but she won’t give you a reason to be. As much as it hurts, you will know she’s doing what she has to do. She always trusts her gut and does what she needs to do to for herself. She’ll be honest with you, and it will sting, but her honesty with her feelings was one of the things you loved most about her.
If you’re lucky enough to be a part of her life, don’t take it for granted for even a second.
