I’ve always told myself in dating, that I want to leave the person better than I found them.

This last instance — I truly felt that. I think we were good together while we had it.

It was a short instance, but a very good one. You felt like a treat to me, a treat that I needed, it woke me up to newer things.

I feel like a flower that’s bloomed a little. You’ve given me hope and inspiration that I didn’t know I needed. I thought I already had it all — with bright eyes looking forward to the future.

I didn’t know that deep inside I felt dead and bitter in the romance department. I thought there were only bad men left who left after sex or men who wore a veil of kindness but really were insecure and had sexist views of women.

I didn’t think I’d ever meet a man who would still act the same after sex or empathize with my trauma as a woman.

I didn’t think I’d meet a man with such similar values as me — but I did.

You showed me it’s possible.

I’ve always felt confident in reaching my goals in my career but romance seemed so up to chance and luck — and maybe it is but you shoved me on a little. You shook me up and gave me the push I needed to keep looking out with my eyes wide open.

Because of you, I’ll start giving men chances, again. I’m more open to love. I’m more trusting.
