When we first met, I was dating someone, someone I thought was the ONE. It wasn’t until I saw your smile and heard your laugh, that I knew I had been wrong. As we sat across from each other eating sushi, I could barely breath trying to make a good impression. I was too scared to tell you, and too scared to act on it. 10 months went by, and after I broke up with my girlfriend, all I could do was wait for you to message me… like I knew in my heart that you would.
Then you did, and I didn’t know what to say. I’ve been making small talk for weeks, but the whole time I’ve been dying to tell you how I really feel. I’ve been dying to tell you that even though I’m deployed, and I only see you on a computer monitor, you still take my breath away. You are what I think about as I fall asleep every night, and my first thought when I wake up in the morning… and I smile every time. I don’t know if it’s because I’m afraid of rejection, or afraid that you won’t feel the same way, but I just can’t bring myself to tell you. I don’t want to lose you, and the connection we have, as little as that connection may be.
