There are a few things I think you should know, as you are now the object of her affection.
Don’t let it surprise you, how quickly you fall for her, and don’t be apprehensive in letting yourself fall. Don’t let my Facebook page intimidate you. There were a lot of pictures of us, and while I hate to admit it, the pictures are a thing of the past.
She’s taken down most of them by now. She may not talk about me to you. It was a beautiful, one-sided love story of the past, but you are her future now.
We don’t really know each other, and I am sure you already don’t like me. I resented you slightly when I first found out, but we do have something very wonderful in common, and it connects us whether we like to admit it or not.
I can’t tell you every secret because it took me time to figure that out myself. You are going notice how she gets excited like a child when it comes to certain things and learn to hear the giggle in her laugh.
You will see her out drunk and she’ll get mad sometimes. She has a temper, as I’m sure you will noticed, so don’t take it personally. When she storms off, screw your ego, just apologize and trust she’ll always come back with a smile and her bright black eyes that make you look away.
When she falls in love with you, let it not scare you when she cries because that’s the one thing that triggers those emotions in her. When that happens, you’ll almost look forward to simple things, such as walks because she’ll reach for your hand and you’ll blush because no glove has ever fit it so well. She may not think of you at every moment, but you’ll cross her mind often enough.
She has bigger dreams than she is confident enough to believe in, so it’s your job to tell her every day how beautiful she is and how smart she is and that she is capable of it all. She won’t believe you, but don’t stop saying it.
She’ll make you see the world in a new light, and you’ll start questioning things you never knew. She can cook, so don’t expect to be left starving. You’ll find yourself laughing at her little catchphrases, and if you do something she doesn’t like, she’ll look at you without blinking and she will tell you off.
Let none of these scare you and love her the way she deserves. She’ll tell you about the past and her mistakes, so it’s your job to take her hand and let her know you’re not judging her.
She is a better person because of all of that, and she’s found you because of failed relationships in the past. I hope you love her the way she deserves and I hope she loves you as deeply as I thought she did me. I hope she’s honest with you in a way she never was with me, but most of all, I hope she gives you the fairytale I thought would once be my life.
Also: Remember that I don’t dislike you, but if I’m being honest, I am jealous of you. I have found acceptance, but I’m also happy someone else gets a chance to experience what I did.
I only ask one thing of you: Don’t hurt her the way she hurt me. I believe in karma and I believe people get what they send out to the world, but I never wish that pain upon anyone, especially her.
Sincerely, The Other Guy
