i never thought this day would come. i used to be the girl who goes around and break hearts, never wearing my heart on my sleeve, the one with the brains and the looks to hurt many. but six years later,today, i’m registering for solemnisation. i wouldn’t say i’ve changed much. i still loathe at the idea of belonging to one person, the responsibilities that come with it, i can’t deal with romanticism well, i use my head instead of my heart at all costs.
why this has worked so well for me for the past six years was that he had NO expectations of me. It wasn’t all fluffy kinda love, i was real and practical and unafraid to push my boundaries. I did not change my routine nor my group of friends.
i ventured and explored more, fought for independence, did not claim him to be my new best friend.
but i respected, considered his feelings and even started to love him more.
it’s still funny how the girl who wore the ‘don’t trust guys’ tshirt is the first to settle down.
We all need to learn a thing or two from them.
