A Year


Today marks the day that I have spent a whole year (actually more, but I guess anniversaries don’t count for the day you met) with my girlfriend. It has been such an enlightening experience because I have found what I have been looking for. When I met her, even before I met her, I already knew that this was going to be something special, and I would go to all measures to make it happen. Luckily, I didn’t have to do that.
Just now, after a year, I am discovering that mixed and confusing feelings, the feelings of complete attraction, denial, and nescience, that these were mutual. If only we have both known about this, things would have been a lot different, we would have moved much faster. Even though that I wanted things to move faster, I am glad that they didn’t because it would have taken away all of the innocent moments and moments of discovery. Things moved exactly as they were supposed to, to get us where we are now.
This relationship is something that I would never exchange for anything. I have a relationship full of love, appreciation and passion. We are so similar, yet so different. We complete each other, but apart we are complete persons on our own. For once, I have a positive outlook on my future, on our future together. I cannot help but imagine what it will be like in a few months, in another year, or in five years.
I have learnt a lot from this relationship. I have learnt to put myself second, to support one another, to compromise, to keep the spark alive, and to not only receive, but to also give. I think I have found what most people are looking for and I will always cherish that.
