Seven Hundred Thirty-Two Days of You

October 4, 2016

You're probably wondering what this post is about so I'm gonna tell you upfront (just in case the photo doesn't suffice) so you won't have to read on if you find it uninteresting. This is a post dedicated to Joshua, my boyfriend. You might have stumbled upon his name on this blog a couple of times before, but this'll be the first time that I'll formally acknowledge and dedicate an entire post to him.

To be honest, I was never a fan of long and sappy messages. That’s why as much as possible, I resort to bad puns, short messages or sometimes leave the caption blank mainly because of two reasons: one, that I might draw too much attention and I’m afraid that other people might judge our relationship (or my writing skills), and two, I’m scared that I’d eventually run out of words to say (assuming that we’d last long enough for that to happen lol). But over the past years, I realized– well, actually, he made me realize– that none of that should matter.

And since we're spending our 2nd anniversary apart (and probably our upcoming birthdays too because LDR is a bitch), I'd like to take this moment to be the grateful and loving girlfriend that he deserves.

Dearest Jo,

I love you for always believing in me. For encouraging me to keep doing what I love most. For supporting my mini-projects, for inspiring me to do better, and for being the number 1 fan of all my works. Thank you for not giving up on me even when I almost did. For listening to my endless rants. For comforting me at my weakest. For enduring everything that comes along with my anxieties, insecurities and everything in between.

I love you for your all your quirks and mannerisms and your unbelievable skill of remembering even the littlest details of my stories. I love how your weirdness is in sync with mine. That's why I'm never scared of being myself when I'm with you. I can sing my heart out, imitate lines from TV series, fart out loud, ugly-cry, and laugh uncontrollably when I want to. And it makes me happier that you're comfortable with me as well.

I love you for constantly giving me reasons to love you even if I already have more than enough. For being the most patient human being that ever existed. I'm actually aware of my irrational mood swings yet I continue to challenge your patience anyway. And you, you're never tired of accepting me despite all my flaws and imperfections.

I love you for reminding me everyday how beautiful I am even when I think I'm not. For calling me your princess, and you, my dashing prince. You know I'm not good at taking compliments and most of the time I'd beg to disagree. But it amazes me how you find beauty in such a mess. And you know what? You amaze me everyday, too.

Seven hundred and thirty-two days since the day you asked me to be your girlfriend and I said yes. And you never stopped to make me feel loved since then. For that, I am eternally grateful. Continue being the kindest, most genuine, and loving person that you are. Happy 2nd Anniversary to us, Joshua! I love you always. See you soon! xx
