Show her that she should trust that it was a good thing she waited this long. Show her you were worth the wait. And that all the years without love were worth it because now, she has you.

I have a challenge for you: the next time you venture into the world, try to put forth only kindness.
A gentleman treats a woman and her standards with respect and wouldn’t violate them. It seems like you only know how to be a gentleman for a certain amount of time.
I have been holding on to a relationship that’s not quite there. To a commitment that isn’t. To a love that doesn’t give it’s all. To a person who’s not all in.
