Did you know that I am in love with you?
We’ve been dating for almost nine months now, and I’ve only known you for a year, but I am in love with you. I’m not one to jump into things, especially because I’ve been hurt before… but, I love you. I haven’t told you that yet, though. I’m waiting on you. And the weird thing is, I don’t know if you’ll ever say it.
All the articles say that people with Aspergers have a hard time expressing things and acknowledging other peoples’ emotions. I think you’ve done a pretty alright job, but you can be quite oblivious. You always tell me that I need to say everything I’m feeling because you just aren’t able to understand my facial expressions.
And there are days where you frustrate me for small things, but I guess that happens to everyone. The weird thing is: I still want to be with you despite any fault I’ve found in you. I guess that’s what love is; finding that one person that knows how to drive you crazy, but you still could just spend the rest of your life with them. I’ve found that with you.
And I really hope that you feel the same way. I’m going to tell you soon. I’m not sure when or how, but I don’t want it to be so generic. I just want it to be a normal moment and I can just say it. I don’t need fireworks or a love song. All I want is another one of those sleepy moments when I’m lying in your arms watching a rerun of House or Family Guy. Moments where we are just alone and enjoying each others’ presence are the things that remind me that I could do this forever.
Even when the spark fades and we’re left with the routine lives of normality, I still want to spend every monotonous moment with you. You always tell me you want me forever. Well, you have me. I love you.
