you have loved me long enough to notice


tfs

You have loved me since I was 15.
Braces and all, you thought I was the most beautiful girl at school.
At first, I wasn't sure what I thought of you.
You were so open with me about your emotions from day one.
I was used to guys playing games with my mind,
but you told me right away that you thought we would be good together.
You would call me on the phone, (every other night so that you would not seem too anxious)
and you would write down things for us to talk about in your notebook. (I found this out later)!
You could always make me laugh,
and even though I pushed you away at times
I secretly knew I loved your attention.
Finally, I admitted this to myself,
and I told you I liked you.
You wanted to be romantic,
so on our first date you took me to the aquarium,
and asked me to be your girlfriend.

Almost four years later I am looking back on everything we have been through.
I have never been so comfortable with anybody in my life.
You know all of me,
and I know all of you.
The other night you said to me, "You look so grown up"
and I almost cried simply because of the fact that you have loved me long enough to notice something like that.
We have had our share of hard times,
but that is to be expected when you are young and in love.
It is amazing that we are still together,
considering how young we are,
and this proves to me that something just clicks between us.
I feel secure,
I feel happy,
I trust you,
and I love you with all of my heart.

-Emma

  2. that makes me want to cry somewhat. with my boyfriend of 3.5 years and I breaking up this past summer, it's hard to read things like that. Wish it could of been us. But I'm happy for anyone who experiences that. I did once; just hope I get to experience it again sometime soon.

  6. this made me tear up.
    i once had this, and it didn't work out after the three years from my age 17-20.
    i hope they continue on forever.
    there are boys out there that are good, and don't need anyone but that one girl they love.

    i love that it's written by such a young girl, yet it doesn't come off as naive. it's beautiful. they sound like a phenomenal couple.

    best love and wishes to emma and her boy

  12. that's beautiful. you're a really lucky girl, Emma. I really hope this will be my boyfriend and i in a couple of years..

  13. Wow, this is so lovely! I hope mine will last exactly like this - I'm in that kind of relationship too. When I look back on how I looked and acted then, I can't understand why he went for me... and I as well was used to people just going for something short, never really wanting ME. But now a year and a half later so far everything is amazing, nothing could be better, even though he's on the other side of the world and he's going to uni and he could be having fun with other girls, he's not, because he loves me. I really hope it turns out like yours emma!

  17. Emma... just wanted to say that I hear myself in your words. I met my husband when I was 15. You and I are the lucky ones to have met someone we love so much so young.

    I'm 10 years down the road and looking back I wish you luck because it only gets better. Your love grows and you learn to let go enough to give him all the room he needs to be as amazing as he is meant to be. At the same time he stands watching from the wings to see you all grown up. Looking back across the room you catch his eye and know you are you because he saw the woman you've become and loved you.

    Remember -we weren't too young when we met, we're the lucky ones who got to met the men we love early.

Now 3 years later I look back on our relationship and I realise that we have experienced the most important years of our lifes togehter and he have had I huge impact on the person that I am today.

  20. I was very touched on this part “The other night you said to me, "You look so grown up"
    and I almost cried simply because of the fact that you have loved me long enough to notice something like that.
    We have had our share of hard times," it almost made me cry.

  21. Beautiful post.
    I wish I could be in your position. I feel like my boyfriend and I are fading apart after 3 and a half years. I wish we could get stronger.

  26. I almost cried. Hopefully something like this will be written by me in about 3 years and 10 months. I can actually see it happening.

    And it makes me sooo happy. :)

  27. I'm so happy for you, but still I can help but being jealous. I fell in love when i was 13 and we loved each other for 4 years, then we broke up.. or I sholud say i broke up with him. It was the biggest mistake of my life and now, three years later, I still think of him and I still think that breaking up with the guy who loved all of my flaws, could stand my bad characters is, and also will be the biggest mistake of my life.

  33. This text gave me so much comfort and hope. I'm only 17 and so in love, and i honestly belive he's the one. But being so young makes it harder. So I love to here about others who maked it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree with May - being so young makes it harder, so i love to hear about others who made it.

    I am 17 and have been in a long distance relationship for more than a year, where i only see my boyfriend per msn and can have months between everytime i touch him. It is the hardest experience i have ever had, but still the only thing in my life i am 100% sure about. I would never cheat on him and i know he would never do it either.
    It is all about being honest, sharing everything, accepting each other in every way and the situasion.
    It is simply all about love.

    And i love your blog. :)

  35. El absolutismo monarquico fue un sistema politico que consistio en que los unicos con derecho a tener poder es decir hacer cumplir las leyes, administrar justicia y de cobrar impuestos, eran los reyes absolutos, sin tener en cuenta a la gente del pueblo.
    Crearon asi los estados nacionales, consejo real que estuvo formado por la gente noble y profesional de aquella epoca, a la vez forman ejercitos permanente y profesional, crean la burocracia, que era un cuerpo de funcionarios capaces de hacer cumplir las leyes y de cobrar impuestos en nombre del rey.
    El estado nacional tuvo una legislacion que abarco todo el territorio sin embargo cada estamento social poseia sus propias leyes y jueces al contrario de la inquicision.
