You may not be his first, his last, or his only. He loved before he may love again. But if he loves you now, what else matters?
He’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if he can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can.
What else could define love?
No, you tell me.
He isn't going to quote poetry (unless he is me), he may not be thinking about you every second of the day (unless he's really idle), but he will give you a part of him that he knows you can break – his heart.
So don’t hurt him.
Don’t change him.
Don't dare change him.
Don't make comparisons.
Hey! Keep your ex out of this!
Don’t analyze and don’t expect more than he can give.
What else do you want to achieve?
Love him as he is!
If you could do this... then, lady mine, you've succeeded.
Again, wear that smile he gives you.
Smile when he makes you happy.
Let him know when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there.
Miss him. Miss him sincerely.
Must you fake it?
Tell him you do.
Love hard when there is love to be had.
Because perfect guys don't exist, but there is always one guy that is perfect for you.
