How was your Valentine’s Day? I hope you had a lovely day. I hope the rest of your week has been treating you nicely too.
Valentine’s Day is just one day a year. I’ve been lucky ever since the first time someone said Happy Valentine’s Day to me. I remember the day so clearly. I was sat in my bedroom doing some university work and I received a text message.
It was a text message wishing me a Happy Valentine’s Day. And how happy I was. I had a big smile on my face and the feeling was new because no one had ever said this to me before. I didn’t even need to hear the words to know how I felt about the person but it gave me the sign that maybe I should start believing someone likes me for me.
This was a person who would find ways to be close to where I was so that he could see me, even if it was just passing by as I crossed the road.
This man (who deep down I always wanted) turned out to be my valentine for the past four years. And I’m sure we will last a life-time.
Not just every Valentine’s since the one before we got together, but ever since he told me his feelings I think we knew we truly had each other. I think it takes a lot to open up your thoughts to someone. I’m a person who usually feels afraid to do so, thinking about reactions before I’ve even spoken.
From the start, I told Danny things that I’ve never shared with anyone. Each thing I did tell him, I wondered if he was thinking about stepping away from me each day. How wrong I was. There was no way on this earth that he was letting me know anywhere. We became ever closer.
I can be sat at home on my own, be lost in my own thoughts, or feel like I’m at a dead-end but I’m never really alone and I never need to feel stuck because I’ve got him.
Some might say we are the most immature people around but I think that, together, we are two of the happiest people in the world. We like to fool around like we are still teenagers but we also know how serious and important our relationship is and I think it’s good to have a combination of the two.
That’s what really matters – how you make each other feel – not matter what anybody else says. You’re the ones who know how happy each one of you are.
