I don’t care about your exes, your one-night-stands or your casual hookups, as long as I know that I am your now, your tomorrow and the next day and the next day, and the next…
I don’t care who warmed your bed before me or who kissed those perfect cherry lips, as long as I know that that spot next to you in your bed is reserved just for me and that your kisses are mine and mine alone.
I have a past, too. I lived and loved before you ever came into my life. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t care about what was. I just care about what is.
To be honest, my past seems like a distant memory. Like a story I heard a long time ago. I never cared for anyone like I do for you. Feelings I have for you are so much bigger.
I can honestly say I didn’t know what true love was until I loved you.
That’s why I hope you feel the same way. I hope you are honest and that you fully intend to give this love a chance. I know I do.
I don’t want to know your past or who was there before me….
I want to know you have eyes only for me.
I don’t want your eyes to wander to some other woman when I am next to you. It’s disrespectful. I know that most men can’t help doing that, but I hope you can, for my sake.
I want to feel as special to you as you are to me. I want to be the only one you have the hots for. I want the same respect I am giving you.
I want to know that you are loyal.
I don’t want to lose sleep because you’ve done something that made me doubt you. Be open and honest with me.
Be loyal and devoted. Be faithful. Be a man of your word. If we are going to work, we need to trust one another. Trust is everything.
I want to know that you are committed to this relationship.
No, I don’t want you to tell me that you will marry me or that you are going to spend the rest of your days with me. I think it’s still early for that.
All I need to know now is that you are one hundred percent invested in this relationship. I don’t want buts and maybes. I want to know that you are ready to be there for me.
I want to know that you are not going to run at the first obstacle. I want to know that your feelings for me don’t scare you. I want to know that you are all in.
I want to see you make an effort.
Show me that you feel as strongly for me as I do for you. Show me that you are ready to meet me halfway and that I am not alone in all of this.
Surprise me. Show up. Call. Text. Hug. Kiss. Cuddle. Give me your attention. Give me your free time. Sweep me off of my feet.
I want to know that you are not indifferent when I am upset.
I know we will fight from time to time. I just want to see that you are as eager to solve our problems as I am. I want us to face everything that comes between us, together, as a team.
I want to know that you care how I feel. I don’t want you to ignore me or leave me be when I am sad and upset.
I want to know that your heart beats only for me.
I want to know that I am in every corner of your heart. I don’t want to share it with anybody. If we are going to make this work, be mine and only mine.
I promise I am all yours, and you have my whole heart.
