If He Really Loves You It Won’t Be A Guessing Game

Twenty20 / @edric

To you (you know who you are),

Love should never be a guessing game and with you, it isn’t. As the adage goes, “when you know, you know.” You never leave me wondering if you love me because it’s beyond the words – it’s embedded in every one of your actions. The late-night phone calls, the texts during the day, the way you always know how to make me feel better. Everything you do proves to me that you love me.

And this is what it should be like.

No one should be sitting around second-guessing their relationships – or themselves. You never make me feel like I’m not good enough or that you could do better. You make me the best version of myself possible but you also remind me I was someone before you and I can be someone after you again. It’s not just about who we are together, it’s who we are apart too that matters.

Every relationship has tough moments – and ours is no exception – but how we get through those together is important. There is compromise and a renewed commitment, but we never have to sacrifice something or change to fit into the mold of what the other person wants to be. We are both allowed to be ourselves, together.

I am not the only one who doesn’t have to guess, no one else does either. I want to tell everyone what this is like but keep it private between us as well. The fine line between displaying what true love should be and keeping it for myself. But none of our friends have to guess either. Even if they don’t know all the facts, they have an understanding by the way you look at me and how we orbit around one another when we are in the same room together.

Even if the fates divide us, I know this love will always be there for both of us. It runs deeper than water.

And I want to drink from it for the rest of my life.

Love me (you know who I am) TC mark
