1. “She’s everything I thought I could never find in one person. Funny, creative, sexy, all of these qualities I’d find individually in one girl or another, but never all at once. She is all of those things, and that’s how I know I don’t want anyone else, because she’s everything I could ever want and more.” —Bruce, 33

2. “She was the first person to make me even consider potentially being with one person for the rest of my life. Before her I would’ve never thought I’d even consider ‘forever,’ but when I met her, I did.” —Alex, 28

3. “I know that my life would be completely different if she weren’t in it, and not in a good way. That’s how I know I want to be with her forever, because I don’t even want to imagine my life without her.” —Mario, 29

4. “I don’t know if I can say there’s one specific thing about her that makes me think I could be with her forever. I just think that I occasionally find myself thinking about a future that she’s apart of.” —Kevin, 27

5. “When I talk about the future with her I don’t feel pressured or anxious about it. It’s just something that happens naturally in conversation, and neither one of us is shocked when it does. If the word marriage or children is ever blurted out, we’re comfortable. We’re not running the other direction.” —Liam, 30

6. “I think I thought I wanted someone with all of the same interests as me, someone who would always want to do the things I enjoyed doing, but she loves all the things that I never thought I could love. I want to spend the rest of my life doing things I never thought I’d do, and she does that to me.” —Ricky, 34

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
