I want a real lover. Who has real intentions. Who has real values. Who isn’t going to pretend. Who isn’t going to fake it. Who loves me for me and nothing else.

You don’t have to wear a smile on your face everyday. You don’t have to cover up the scars that haunt you everyday. You don’t have to battle this fight by yourself. And you shouldn’t.

Maybe it’s too much for me to ask. Maybe my expectations are too high. And maybe I should settle, to find a guy sooner, and settle down faster. But I’m not going to do that. I will wait however long it takes. I know I deserve better. And you do too.

You deserve the biggest love in the world. And despite my flaws, I can give that to you. I can give you what you need and what you want. I won’t always do the right things, or say the right words, but I will always know that I love you.

I know you wish you could have a broken neck instead of a broken heart. But, if everyone in the world died from broken hearts, no one would be left to tell their story. No one would be left in the world at all.
