Long time coming

I can barely believe that in three short months I'll be your wife. My mom likes to tease me for it, but I love that our story began with a lovesick 14-year-old girl doodling her first name and your last in the margins at school. Can't wait to try out that signature again in June. — Margo

It’s an incredible feeling to find someone who accepts your authentic self, who makes you feel like you’re the best version of you when with them. I am so thankful for your honesty and the safe space you provide for me. I adore you. — Smitten Kitten

A pair of leather pants and an idea...

You're my guy. My perpetual hug. My mountain spring of laughter. The steady bedrock, the beautiful heart of a generous and considerate lover who cares for others. I am unfathomably happy that we've been reunited after all this time, and even though we're not in the same place right now, we will be soon! I can't wait to build stuff, make music and art with you, exchange rapid-fire wordplay and scurry around town catching Pokémon. Let the neural-network generated text bring us to tears, laughing so our abs and neck muscles seize up. You're the one for me, and I don't need anyone to send me a SIGN because you already make them. You're better than good. You are THE GOODEST. Long-distance is hard, but your morning texts keep me going, you wordsmith, you. Looking forward to getting a bowl of that chili. — Your Spark, Your Pilot Flame

We bicker, we disagree, but at the end of the day, I love you and you love me.

Culinary cutie

You just trolled one of Gordon Ramsey's cooking videos while eating a Bacon Dipper cracker off the floor.

You're sweetness and light

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2019 at 3:22 PM

It's been years since we sat on the bed, eating applesauce hand-in-hand. Then, the other day, you welcomed me home with an apple cider and it was like an ocean of time but also only a drop had passed since that morning.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.

Reheated leftovers are garbage

I urge you to love yourself more than that guy. He might seem complimentary to your culinary skills, but I can assure you he's not the right fit. I went back for seconds because he said he changed the whole menu; new, improved, full of heaping amounts of respect, apologies; by his accounts a changed man and most certainly a champion for women. I loved myself more when I listened to my inner voice. He did not tell the truth, was sleeping with someone else and showed no remorse for his actions. I loved myself more and left that smug liar. Love yourself more in all your glory, originality and struggle. You are worth it to dine alone until the proper and more fulfilling experience is served.

The hole that you left, my winged friend

Posted By on Tue, Mar 12, 2019 at 12:43 PM

I had you for 18 years. You were six weeks old when I brought you home. You brought so much joy to me, and I don't know how to go on without you. You made me laugh. You loved scratches. Miss you, Chico. Love you forever.

Happy birthday, Squeaks

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2019 at 12:30 PM

I think I'll start a February tradition, for me, because I doubt anyone will take the effort to write for me. A Special Thing? (I love reading the Loves in every Coast, wondering about the lives of these beautiful people). Yet I still want to write to you Sweets, not for myself. My poor heart has been full of you. I was asked why I continue to love you. I simply continue to choose love is all. I can't help who. I just choose love.

So, we never had the best track record for nicknames, Avocado. But oh wow, you have taught me things. Have I taught you anything during this roller coaster? I hope you if you learn anything, its to always remember to find your will. To choose love over your hide. Those red demons. All of it. Continuously everyday, I hope you choose life instead. Every time you must decide. For you and for love.

I never told you why

Posted By on Mon, Feb 4, 2019 at 4:48 PM

Two years ago, we dated for about six weeks. It was my first relationship with a girl. I can still remember how fast you made my heart beat, how sweaty my hands got, how my words fell over each other. I wasn't like this with guys; I secretly knew I was bi for a long time. I came out to my family—what a mistake. I didn't tell you how they badly they gay bashed me. I broke up with you instead and never told you why. I'm so sorry and I still miss you.

You know how I feel

Posted By on Mon, Dec 3, 2018 at 12:16 PM

I've felt this way for months. I held it back, thinking you could never feel the same. But then we got closer and closer. Now, I'm hooked. You're the most vain person I've ever met and yet, I don't care. I love all of your unusual traits. I just wish you could love mine. So, I have to move on. I'll miss you.

Many choices

Posted By on Mon, Nov 19, 2018 at 11:49 AM

We somehow made it through youthful on-again-off-agains to find ourselves grown up, both looking for someone to keep growing with. You sometimes hear about couples "losing their spark", but that won't be us. I see it so clearly and know that I will keep choosing to love you every moment of my life, even (especially) when moments are hard. We are my home.
—Always you

Replying to boy on bike

I loved a boy on a bike. I still do. How I wish we were talking about each other.

Goodbye

Posted By on Tue, Nov 13, 2018 at 11:51 AM

Hello old friend. I know that you probably hate me and I am cool with that. I wish I could tell you this in person, however I can’t. Recent events have put things into perspective for me. My time is slowly running out and I am now trying to correct all the wrongs that younger and more stupid version of me created. The last three years have been hard for me. You have no idea how many times I wanted to reach out to you for comfort—however, I had to wade through a large amount of lies people I thought were friends and mentors told me. It made me choose to resign from my job because of it all just so I could have space to clear my head and think things over. I just wanted to say that I did love you even though you feel like you wasted time on me. I wanted to marry you at one point, Teal eyed Dartmouth girl. Hell, I had visions of growing old with you. Now that is over, I can no longer cling to that. I know that you moved on with your life. I just wanted to get this out of my system fully. I truly miss you more than you could ever imagine but it is time that I moved on in life also. Goodbye, Teal eyed Dartmouth girl. Have a good life.
