Dear Erin. is something I came up with when I was lazing around dreaming of everything under the sky. You know, we all have that moment where you sit, gaze into space and let your brain wonder to catch whatever ideas there are in the air?
The biggest mistake you can make when in a relationship is to get comfortable.
Don’t get comfortable.
Even after a year or 5 when you think you know everything about the person, what he is going to say next, or how he is going to react, don’t get comfortable.
Because once you start getting comfortable, you stop investing in the relationship.
I hope you two still make out like you used to.
No, I’m not talking about a peck on the mouth.
Really make out. With tongues and the passion.
With you moaning softly and him touching your face.
Don’t even have sex after. Just make out.
I hope you still flirt with one another.
I hope the two of you still look at each other the way you did when you first got together.
I hope you two still stare into each other’s souls.
Don’t take each other for granted.
I hope you two still love spending time with each other.
Remember the times that none of you wanted to leave the room and just spend the entire day with each other?
I hope you still do that once in a while.
I hope you still want to tell him things.
That he is the first person in your mind when something amazing happens.
I hope he still shares things with you as well.
Oh, and I hope you two still say please and thank you to each other.
Don't get comfortable.
I hope he calls you up randomly.
I hope he still asks questions.
How is work? How are things with your parents? What did you have for lunch?
I hope you still yearn to kiss him every time he talks.
I hope he still makes you laugh like a teenager.
I hope he gives you random hugs and remind you of how important you are to him.
I hope he still brings you out on dates.
I hope he still makes you feel special.
And I hope you still get all excited getting ready. Taking forever to find the perfect outfit.
Because there are going to be times when the relationship feels so dry.
And it’s these little things that will keep the two of you going.
If the two of you really love each other,
Even when the times get rough, I hope the two of you still fight.
Fight to complement each other.
Fight to drop a text mid-day saying “Hey, you are on my mind” or “I hope all is well over there”.
Fight to go the extra mile to put a smile on each other’s face.
Fight to be together.
I learnt today that you might love someone with all your heart.
However, that does not mean you like them.
You need moments of liking them.
Have those moments where you go “F*ck yeah, me and the mr are going for a movie together / Awesome, dinner with my baby tonight!”.
Because if you can't like them at the end of the day, you’re going to find it hard to love them soon.
In the end, I just hope you’re happy Erin.
I hope that if the world came to an end tomorrow, you won’t have any regrets having that partner by your side.
