Before you single ladies say to yourselves, "Agh! I hate you relationship people!" and skip over this, I promise you will want to keep reading. Do you know how I know that my boyfriend not only truly loves me, but also knows me extremely well? I have two pictures to prove it. Here is photo of proof #1:
I know there are quite a few of you out there thinking to yourselves, "Well...don't the Mt. Dew and the ZzzQuil sorta cancel eachother out?" If you want to get all serious about it, the answer is yes. However, that's not the point! I drink my favorite soda (which--yeah, total bad habit. Gotta start drinking more water!) throughout the day, and the ZzzQuil kicks in right before bed (on a good night, where it decides to be kind and work with me) and has me drooling after about 30-45 minutes. Thank you, boyfriend.
Okay...now let's say we have a fight. I know what you're thinking right now. "You and Brandon cannot have fights. You're just way too cute of a couple, and I can't fathom in my mind the two of you arguing over anything." That's sweet of you, and yeah, I'd like to think we're pretty darn cute together. However--just like EVERY NORMAL COUPLE, we have stupid fights occassionally. So, the other night, I come home to these lovelies sitting on the counter, just waiting for me to start crying over:
Did I cry? Yes. Because I may not have ever told you, but I'm an emotional person. So, not only do I cry over sad/bad things, but I cry at happy times just as much. Of course I ran to him and gave him a big hug and squeezed him almost a little too much. "Let's never fight like that again," I exclaimed, as if that's possible at all when you're in a relationship and actually care about each other.
May 23rd will be two years since we've been together. Did I ever in a million years think I'd find someone who treated me so well and loved me in such a big way that I really felt like I was their everything? NO WAY! I honestly thought, especially after all the crappy boyfriends I've have (and let me be clear on that: I've had several super ****head boyfriends who didn't deserve not one bit of me) I'd be single forever. Which brings me to one of my main points. We all know Valentine's Day is coming up. It's never been a holiday I waited for, especially when I was single. Because when you're single, you of course feel like V-Day is a Hallmark holiday made just to point out that you're single, and makes you hate everyone in a relationship...especially the good relationships. Don't let that happen, my single lady friends. Mr. Right is just around the corner, and just like everyone has ever told you, he will come around when you least expect it. I wasn't looking for Brandon and BOOM! There he was. I believe in love; real, honest to God, I would die for that person because I care about them that much, love. To all my readers out there who are in happy relationships, I'm so happy for you! To all my readers who aren't, I'm still so happy for you! Because I know you will be, but only if you stop looking so hard and let love do its thing.
I wanted to post about love BEFORE Valentine's Day, because I like being different. I also like to give my readers hope, especially when they feel all alone on something. Please know you're not. Also know that it's completely, 100% okay to go on match.com or one of those websites. It's okay to be sad when you're single and struggle on that stupid holiday when you feel like you're the only girl in the world without a lover. Hold tight to your friends on February 14th, and most important of all, hold on to FAITH! Also remember, I love you very much for reading, and I hope that counts for something. ;) I always like to remind people never to settle for less than you deserve! It is, and never will be, worth it. On that note, I'm off to go get my fix of Arizona Rx Stress tea. Get ready for a beauty post from my lovely big sister either tomorrow or Monday. I'm excited, and you should be, too!
