“The last time we spoke, we had a sickening pause before saying goodnight. It was the space we were used to saying “I love you” in. And truthfully, I don’t believe it was simply muscle memory.
You called me a few nights later and I didn’t pick up.
I wrote you an email. You didn’t respond.
We’re both just trying to say something, but never know how we should start.
Maybe this is me, with trembling fingers and voice much softer than usual. Maybe this is me, just trying to start.”

“I hope you fall in love with someone who always texts back, and never lets you fall asleep thinking you’re unwanted.
I hope you fall in love with someone who holds your hand during the scary parts of horror movies, and burns cookies with you when you’re too busy dancing around the kitchen.
I hope you fall in love with someone who sees galaxies in your eyes, and heard music in your heartbeats.
I hope you fall in love with someone who tickles you, and makes you smile on hard days and on easy ones.
But beyond all that, I hope you fall in love with someone who will never leave you behind, and take you for granted.
Someone who will stand by you when you’re right, and stand by you when you’re wrong.
Someone who has seen you at your worst and has loved you still.
I hope you fall in love with someone who kisses you in the rain, and hugs you in the cold, and wouldn’t have you any other way.”
“You need to take a minute to tell her she’s beautiful. Call her after work to say, “Get dressed in 30 minutes. I’m picking you up and taking you somewhere special.”
Make an effort. Old-fashioned love needs to make another round.
The days of holding hands, opening the car door, taking her out “just because,” sending her flowers just to get a smile and leaving her notes on her car should never be gone.
We have to be children when it comes to love.
We have to be vulnerable and free. That can’t happen when we’re preoccupied with the details of everyone else’s lives.
Focus on each other. When it’s all said and done, that’s all you really have.
Appreciate her, and show her how much she means to you. But, most importantly, put your phone down, and dial into what’s in front of you.”
