My favorite part of a relationship is the part where we’re just getting to know each other. The part where I wake up in the morning, and my first instinct is to text or call you to say ‘good morning’. The part where I’m just sitting in class, and suddenly the thought of you strikes my mind out of nowhere, causing me to smile. The part where we talk for hours long on the phone, asking each other questions, telling each other countless stories, and falling asleep together. From the cute nicknames to the constant flirting, I can’t help but feel a spark lighting up. These fresh feelings are what I cherish the most because they’re what keeps me hopeful for the future.
And my next favorite part of a relationship is when I’ve finally told you that I like you and now I’m able to show you off to the whole world. I can hold your hands, kiss you, hug you in front of everyone. I can now tell you that I miss you and that you mean the whole damn world to me. I can call you, text you as much as I want without sounding like a weird clingy friend. I can now call you whenever I want because you told me that you’d wake up in the middle of the night just for me.
I can now cry because you’ve hurt me, and learn that side of you that I wasn’t able to see before. I am now able to see the angry and sad side of you when I’ve done something wrong to hurt you.
But my most favorite part of all is that I can now call you my forever, because it feels damn right. And the only part I’m looking forward to is the future.
