Love Like This

Dear Andrew,
We have been dating for over 3 years now. I will never forget the day that I was introduced to you and I said, “I’m the coolest person you will ever meet.” I had never said it before to anyone but I just decided to be funny. Little did I know that was the moment you liked me. For a year we were best friends, talked every day while you were at KU, skyped and you even came to be my date at a Christmas party. All this time I had no idea you had any type of attraction to me, much less a gigantic crush on me. 

I’m sorry that I accidentally rejected you like 5 times. I had no idea you were asking me out, I thought you were kidding. I thought that your type was tall and blond, two things I am definitely not. I had no idea that a short, curly haired girl was actually your dream girl. I had no idea that a gamer, accounting, math and finance geek could be into someone like me. 

You called me Doe and I called you Dear. It’s stuck with us before we even dated. Doe and Dear. Forever. We even have Doe and Dear shirts that people stop us to tell us how cute they are. 

For the past 3 years I have been the happiest girl in the world. You continually amaze me. You continually put up with my love of shoes and my constant need to take over the ENTIRE closet. You genuinely enjoy walking around Forever 21 while reading ESPN because you just want to be together. You put up with my love of J. Crew and photograph my outfits even though you don’t get anything about blogging. 

Thank you babe. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. You are the one I will always love. Thank you for always being a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with and the person who I know will always have my back. You have made me nothing but happy, even through all of your smart remarks that make me glare at you. It’s a love glare I swear. Out of all the nerds in the world, you are my favorite. You will always be my precious nerd. I love you.
