I Would Like To Love You, If That’s Okay

Hi. It’s nice to meet you. I may not know you, but I hope we’ll get along. Don’t worry, I’m friendly. Do you have two minutes? I can tell you more about myself than meets the eye. I’m a free spirit who is passionate, driven, and thirsty for experience, for adventure out there in the open world.

You’re welcome to tag along if you’d like. Oh, imagine how much fun that would be. Let’s go out there and rethink the world as we march on through. There’s a ton to see and so much to discover. I’m already excited, aren’t you?

It makes me happy to make you happy. I can be whatever you need. I ask for nothing in return but knowing that you’re okay. I may not solve your problems, but I’ll put you first before anything else. I’ll try so hard to help. I’ll do anything I can. I know I don’t have to do all of this, but I want to. I want to be here for you.

All I want is to spend time talking to you and learning more about you. Nothing you say could ever be boring, and I only want to hear from you again and again. You make me feel good. You make me feel like I’m not alone. You make me feel like somewhere in this big world, there’s a place where I actually belong.

I like you. Wasn’t that already obvious? There’s nothing about you that I would change. I want you to see yourself like how I see you. I want you to be confident in who you are—a strong young man who’s capable of achieving all of his dreams. There’s no doubt in me that you can do it. And I just wanna be there to see it.

I like you, and I would like to love you, if that’s okay. Here’s my heart, my soul, and my trust. I’m ready to take a leap and dive in. Let’s make promises and walk off into a future together. Just tell me that you feel the same way. Please tell me that you feel the same way.
