This Is Why She’ll Love You

(Source: thoughtcatalog.com)

It won’t be for your looks, or your money, or what you possess. It won’t be because of your stable job or your nice home. Not for a real woman, anyway. It won’t be because you rode up on a white horse and saved her from a ridiculous, life-threatening situation. It won’t be because you climbed a tower and freed her from a life of suppression or an evil witch. It won’t be because you offered her everything that money can buy. It won’t be because you offered her a fairytale love. It won’t be because of the sex. She’s had men in her life who have offered her all of that and more.

She didn’t love a single one of them.

Not a single one.

But. . . 

She’ll love you because when you made plans on a Saturday afternoon, you didn’t cancel at the last minute.

She’ll love you because you remembered her favorite type of ice cream, and didn’t argue as to why she was wrong.

She’ll love you because even though she lived a distance away, you still made the effort to come and visit her.

She’ll love you because she doesn’t feel like all she is to you is a sex object, that maybe there’s something more to her than just her body.

She’ll love you because you didn’t make her feel like your one and only one day, only to make her feel disregarded and discarded the next.

She’ll love you because when you talk about your future, she feels like she has a part in it.

She’ll love you because she never laid in bed crying, feeling like you had ripped out her heart.

She’ll love you because you finally made her believe in true love and all the adages that come along with it.

She’ll love you because you give her a reason to get up in the morning, and not hate the person she sees when she stares into her mirror.

She’ll love you because you remembered her birthday, and wanted to make sure she celebrated it correctly.

She’ll love you because of the way you held her hand in public.

She’ll love you because you never built up her hopes, just to let her down.

She’ll love you because you respect her.

She’ll love you because she never once had to question whether or not you were seeing someone else.

She’ll love you because she understands you’re your own person with your own flaws, and she accepts that.

She’ll love you because you were kind.

She’ll love you because you were decent.

She’ll love you because you were patient.

And, last of all, she’ll love you because when she cried over how you’ve changed everything for her and she’s both grateful and afraid, you told her that you would figure it out.

Together.
