The guy who you wake up to every morning is an amazing person. He will always put your happiness above his no matter what it means.
Once, back when we were sixteen, I made him take a defensive driving course just so I could get my license early. He also sat in the pouring rain and again in the bitter cold to see Taylor Swift.
I have yet to meet another guy who would endure half the things he did for me. He is and always was an incredibly sweaty person. His hands were always sweating and I would always complain.
But secretly, I loved it. I loved that he would put his hand on my thigh for all of two minutes and my pants would be sopping.
His fingers were also really wide. Once we actually realized then when we were holding hands, my fingers were spread as far as they could possibly go just to interlock with his. He also had a lot of smells. Some good, some bad. I found notes almost every day while we were dating in a book I was reading, in a random Word document, on my windshield, etc. He would cry when he hurt me. He was so unbelievably upset with himself for causing me pain that you could see it in his eyes.
He would cry when he thought he would lose me.
He would cry when describing his love for me. He cried that last night when we both knew we could never recover what we had. So basically, this guy is amazing. He will always be the one that got away.
Take it from someone who has dated many guys since him, he is one of a kind. He will love you to the moon and back times infinity. You will be his number one priority and he will fight for you. A new Thought Catalog series exploring our connection to each other, our food, and where it comes from.
