Remember when we asked each other out,
At the same time?
It was then I knew that you were perfect for me
But I was still so nervous
because I’ve always had terrible relationships
But because of you I know what real love is

You don’t control everything I do
You let me be independent
You let me make my own decisions
And you love all my friends

You support my dreams
And I support yours
We don’t lie to each other
Except for that one time I told you I didn’t eat the last Oreo

I feel peaceful around you
I feel safe
You give me space when I need it
But you're always waiting for me when I need to talk
We treat each other with such respect

You respect my friends
And my opinions
Even if you don’t agree with them

You never force or insist me to do anything I don’t want to do
And I never force you to do anything
We don’t abuse each other like they used to
The only thing we insist on each other is to wear fuzzy socks in the winter

We aren’t dependent on each other
Except for the Netflix password because I keep forgetting it
We have good relationships with people outside of our house
And we both know that if this relationship has to end, we’ll respect it

You’re the best thing that ever happened to me
Because of you I don’t have to sleep with my eyes open
Because of you I don’t have to walk on eggshells
Because of you I’m finally complete

I want to spend the rest of my life with you
And the answer to your question of marrying you
my answer is
