“I love you..”-I said nervously for the first time 😰
It was February 14th, 2007 ❤️️
We had been dating for a few months but I knew she was the one.
You know: charming, beautiful, funny, 4.1 GPA, Summa Cum Laude, speaks 5 languages – the basics 😁
I had put together a photo album of pictures of us that had one line on each page of a poem I had written.
I flipped through and read each line of the rhyming poem to her.
On the last page it ended with “I love you..”
I looked in her eyes anxiously awaiting her response.
After what seemed like eternity, she responded..
My heart sunk to my stomach as obviously that was not what I wanted to hear.
We continued to date.
I kept working at it and eventually she said it back.
Fast forward, we continued to date, got married, have an awesome life now, and I trapped her with a kid.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you never give up. (In a non-stalkerish way)
Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️️❤️️
