I met a guy tonight. We’ve been texting for awhile, and tonight I finally met him. I was hesitant, and I was scared. I wondered if I was really ready to meet someone new again. I know I’ve met another guy since my ex, but it was different. He wasn’t… connected?
This boy? He says “goodmorning”.
I know it doesn’t seem like much. Maybe it even sounds silly. But it makes me feel special. It makes me feel like someone is thinking about me, when they get a spare moment in their morning to shoot me a text with well wishes. My ex hadn’t said goodmorning or goodnight for a long time without my having said it first.
I know I can be high-maintenance sometimes. I know I agitate easily and am an incredibly stressful person. But it doesn’t take much to make me genuinely happy. All I really need is a man to acknowledge me as someone special. All I need is a “goodmorning” with a smile. And I smile back.
