I’m Willing To Make This Work If You Are

When you first met me you did all of these things to impress me. I wasn’t sure if you were serious about me or just interested in a fling like most guys. But then you opened up to me and you told me about your dark past.

You told me you wanted to travel the world with me and you wouldn’t let a day go by without telling me you had feelings for me. Eventually this led to frequent good morning and good night texts which I appreciated, but I knew they wouldn’t last forever. When we saw each other it was usually once a week, and when we were apart we would stay in contact because we always missed each other. Every moment we have spent together has felt so natural and so right. I can be my weird self around you and that is a beautiful thing.

I’m usually not one to open up so fast to someone because of my past but you actually listen to me and you support me and believe in me. It’s been about a month now since we have been together and things feel different. You seem distant lately, and it’s very unlike you. You are usually very enthusiastic and usually want to talk to me. It feels like you have stopped trying. I am giving you your space because I know you have been under a lot of stress with your new work schedule, and I don’t want to cause you more.

I hope you know I still care even if we aren’t talking everyday like we used to. I hope you don’t think I have lost interest because I am not reaching out to you. The thing is I don’t want to mess this up so I am giving you time to yourself to figure things out. Now I don’t know what the rule is to having a healthy, successful long lasting relationship.

Communication I would say is the most important because you can go from being best friends to being strangers instantly by not communicating. I already gave you my trust and you gave me yours. If you aren’t ready I totally understand, falling for someone can be scary and you lose yourself. I just want you to know that if you do want to do this I am willing to be patient, we don’t have to rush anything. I will be here to support you with whatever you need and we can take it slow.

Just please don’t tell me things if you don’t mean them. Always be honest with me and if you aren’t feeling like we are right for each other just tell me. I have been rejected more times than I can count so I can handle it. Just please all I ask is, you don’t just stop talking to me out of the blue without telling me what is going on. Relationships are not easy, there are always going to be bumpy roads but we can get past them. This has to be a two way street and we both have to be on the same page in order for this to work.
