If I can be mushy for a moment, I just want to say how lucky I feel, how lucky I’ve felt since this time last year. People can say whatever they want about online dating, but I wouldn’t have met Matt any other way. Sure, I could’ve run into him in town, but talking to him for a few weeks prior to actually meeting him for drinks helped me get to know things about him that he might not have been comfortable enough to tell me otherwise. I truly do believe that everything happens for a reason, and that includes the people you meet. Every single day, I wake up and see that smiling face looking back at me and I can’t help but think about how loved I am. I think this is the only real love I’ve ever known, and I’m entirely okay with it. I found found the man that loves me more than the whole world, and the feeling is so very well reciprocated. I know I joke around with him about my ring size, but I know he’s thinking about it all too because he never changes the subject. I look at him and see the most amazing future by his side. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been and that’s all I could ever ask for. So, here we are, a little over a year down, and I can only hope for infinite years to come. I love you with all of my heart.
I only wish you would’ve waited a bit longer before you left.
