If You Have Doubts, Just Take One Chance On Me

Everton Vila


Meeting you and feeling the way I feel is something I did not expect. Now you are stuck in my head like a favorite song. You are on my mind when I wake up and my last thought before I fall asleep.

You have captured my attention.

The first day I spent with you, I knew I was in trouble. The more I talked to you the more I found myself drawn to you. As time progressed all I could think was I could really like this guy. And it scared me. It still scares me.

You are one of those rare people I can just talk to. I have never met anyone like you. You are so completely you it is hard to describe. You are smart, you are funny, you are kind, you are confident, you are sweet, and you are charming. I could talk to you for hours. I want to talk to you for hours.

I want to know what makes you ‘you’. I want to know what you love, what you hate, what makes you laugh, what breaks your heart, what makes you feel alive. I want to get to know you. And the way you laugh. I love the sound.

I have not known you for very long, but I already like you so much. It scares me because I do not have very good luck when it comes to things like this.

But if I have learned anything in the last year, it is not to ignore the way I feel about the man right in front of me.

I like the person I am with you. When I am talking to you I am more ‘me’ than I have ever been with anyone else. When I am with you I feel safe, yet my heart still races because these feelings are dangerous.

I love that you listen when I talk and really care about what I am saying and if we get interrupted you ask me to finish my thought later. When I am with you I feel smart and funny and interesting.

I love the way you make me laugh and how a moment with you can brighten a dreary day.

Sometimes I think you might feel the way I do, but I am afraid to believe it. I am afraid that I might just be seeing what I want to see.I am afraid I will end up alone and hurting because I let myself feel this way about you. But despite all my fear I am letting myself feel this way because what if I am not imagining things.

I know there are probably a million reasons why you shouldn’t but here I am standing in front of you and hoping you can see me. I hope you will take a chance on me and let me take a chance on you.TC mark
