When I Love Someone...

I will spend time with them. I often don't know what to talk about when I'm with them. I'm very introspective and am aware that not everyone's as interested in me as I am. But just being in the same room as them is enough to make me happy. A few times, I've even just gone to a friend's house just to do my work. It makes me feel more comfortable and I don't procrastinate as much.

I will argue with them. I don't fear having a difference in opinion with them. I'm not worried that if they don't like what I have to say, they'll reject me. We can challenge each other and annoy each other and even give each other the cold shoulder for a while. But I still know that they'll stick around through thick and thin. No matter what comes between us - time, distance, money, a girl or a moral value - I know that we'll eventually get over it and move on with life.

I will let them in. I'll allow them to see the scared, sad, insecure side of me that I often keep well-hidden. They know the struggles I go through with girls, my career, my sense of self... I trust them with that power. They know how to use it wisely.

And most importantly...
When I really, truly love someone...
I will tell them.
It feels awkward. I feel vulnerable. It sounds forced.
But I'll mean it from the bottom of my heart.
