I had heard about you.
It wasn’t much, just the basics, you know? Your name, where you went to school, and how old you were.
Other than that, I didn’t know much.
I never knew that your eyes light up when you smile, or that you have a really contagious laugh.
I didn’t realize that you are this kind, funny, intelligent, and thoughtful person that goes out of his way to help others.
I just assumed that you would be another face, someone to know and possibly remember in years to come, or maybe I wouldn’t, who knew?
I didn’t think you would really mean anything to me. You were something so out of the blue, something I never expected, someone that flipped my world around.
When I first met you, I immediately got the “mysterious bad boy “vibe and thought I should keep my distance. I never thought we’d become friends,
But then I got to know you.
And I realized that you’re someone that I can joke with, and (willingly) be myself around, and someone who I can count on to make me smile. You got me to open up to you ( which doesn’t happen very often) and got me to fall for you.
I didn’t realize that you’d be someone I’d fall for.
I didn’t realize how much it would make my day to see you smile across the room at me or to have you ask how my day went. I never thought that the small chit chat that we had would be something that I’d look forward to having every day (and something I’d be bummed out about if we didn’t ).
I never thought that you would be anything more than just another face, and I certainly didn’t think you would mean anything to me.
But I was wrong.
I’m so glad that I was wrong.
Because I learned that you are a person that should be in my life. And I’m hoping that you’re a person that will remain in it.
I hope that we stay in each other’s lives for a long time.
But if we for some reason don’t.
Just know, that you made an impression on me.
You were the guy, that I never saw coming.
And now, you’re the one that I’m glad showed up.
