Don’t stop chasing.
I think that one of the biggest reason why relationships do not work out in the long run is because at one point, one side (or both) stops trying. Before one claims another person as their significant other, they would do anything to make that person happy. They would chase, they would flirt, they would be charming. They would send daily morning and goodnight texts every time you wake up or go to sleep. They would write corny messages and pick up lines just to make sure that there is a smile upon your face. But once they claim you as theirs, all of those things eventually stop. The 5 page texts slowly turn into 1. The constant calls turn into not calling at all. And the lovely endearments turn into daily arguments. In order for a relationship to work, don’t ever stop chasing. Just because the person you want is now consider “yours”, it does not mean they deserve anything less than the time when you’re trying to win them over.
I think I’m in love with you. But no, not that pesky sixth grade infatuation you’re thinking about. I think I’m actually in love with you. For once, I think I’ve found someone I can fully relate and commit to. I’m not thinking about taking you home with me just for some fun; I’m thinking about waking up to see your radiant face every morning, for the rest of my days. I absolutely love your voice on the phone, especially when you’re tired because it’s three in the morning. I’m under the influence of your personality; like a drug I can’t resist, you make me smile every time you say my name. I want to cuddle with you, I want to smell your hair, I want to tell you how you’ve changed my life for the better. You’ve made a difference in my life. You’ve reached into my soul and showed me the very essence of what it means to be with someone emotionally, physically, mentally. And because of what you’ve done for me, I’ve learned to love you the same way I learned how to ride a bike. Scared, but recklessly; without a helmet or elbow pads, so my very scars can tell the story of how I fell for you.
