We should be together because you know more about me than anyone should. You know how I lost my virginity, and in detail. You know that he was a jerk and that I haven’t talked to him since. When I told you, you hugged me, kissed me on the four-head, and told me that he doesn’t deserve me– then took me out to lunch.
We should be together because you’ve been there for as long as I can remember. I don’t have to explain anything to you, you just get it. I never have to use the phrase “my friend so-and-so”… because you know everyone in my life. You know how my mother gets on my nerves, and you understand that my dad is my favorite person on this planet (you’re a close second).
We should be together because we are seen as a pair, anyway. We complete each other, as cliche as that sounds. I know how to make you
feel better, when no one else can. I know all of the secrets to your happiness, as do you to mine.
We should be together, because I cried to you about how my father won’t be able to walk me down the aisle when he passes, and you told me that you would instead. However, I want you to walk me in the other direction.
We should be together because I love every side of you. Happy-you, cranky-you, drunk-you, upset-you, passionate-you. I see the loveliness in every part of you, probably because it’s you.
We should be together because we think the same way. You basically finish my sentences, and we agree on every political issue. You
respect my opinions, as a woman, and as a person. We see eye-to-eye on almost every situation– and if I don’t agree with your
decision-making skills at that point in time, I can tell you that you’re being an idiot, and you value my opinion (as do I, yours).
We should be together because you hear music the same way that I do.
We should be together because you once wrote me a two-page letter saying that you missed me, and never want to lose our relationship. I hadn’t noticed, but you thought we had grown apart. I promise that I will never leave your side.
We should be together because everything is effortless with us. I don’t need to think before I speak, but you still love the things I have to say. You think I am funny, intelligent, and loving– even when I doubt myself. I wish that you saw the amount of potential in yourself, that you see in me. But we are working on that.
We should be together because we make sense together.
We should be together because I love you.
