I hope you’ll have heard of me I’ve been in his life for the past year- whether we were together or like now, just as friends. I may be the one you bump into on a night out. We have many stories and memories, But please don’t think you cant talk to me. I’ll give everyone a shot, maybe a few if they mean something to someone I care about. Which now, means you. Whatever people say about me whether it be good, bad or stupid it probably is true, especially my protectiveness over my friends. They are like my family. If you have heard me say “I’ll kill her if they hurt him.” its obviously not true, but I will be upset and probably angry. If you hurt him, you will have probably destroyed me, he was my everything for a long time, and even though he isn’t now, I still care deeply.
Although I’d love to hate you, I don’t. I’m jealous of what you have now, I had that arm around me at night. I had that kiss on my forehead while I was drifting off to sleep. I had him wipe away my tears. I heard the cheeky giggle when I tickled him. I cuddled him when times were hard. But now that’s you. Don’t think it as a responsibility, but do think about if you want a future with him, cause he doesnt deserve being hurt.
When you look into his big brown eyes when hes been “off”, don’t wonder about what he’s thinking. He’ll tell you in his own time, don’t push him to talk to you. He won’t respect you for it. I learnt when he told me about a very sad time in his life. If he opens up and tells you about it, be there, don’t take this lightly. If he’s upset cuddle him, he will probably cry his eyes out and push you away but cuddle him again. Even if its horrible to watch and listen to, do it. He appreciates the little things even if he doesn’t show it. You’ll know this when he’s had a few tequilas and tells you little things you wouldn’t think he’d remember. You’ll appreciate him even more, then he’ll wake up with a headache.
You’ll find out his favourite film, his favourite games, and his favourite food soon enough. I can guarantee after 10 times of watching that bloody film you’ll be quoting the same parts he does in day-to-day life. You’ll turn into a mini-geek with actors, cartoons and game characters. You will also start to buy or make food you know he loves, even when he’s not coming over- but you’ll do it just in case.
When your with him, he’ll tease you like hell. But he does it cause he knows he’ll give you a hug and it will all be forgotten. He tormented me about every single thing. Whether it be my choice of dolly shoes when the weather was awful. Or the way bag was way to big for no reason. Or because I was from “the rough area”. He doesn’t do it to hurt you, he just thinks he’s funny! He also knows when he’s close to the line of you losing and it slapping him, and he’ll move towards you and touch you in some way, whether it be a hug, a kiss or tickling you.
I’m sure you’ll meet his friends, and I’m sure you’ll go to the pub with them at some point. If you go to the bar- look back at him, you’ll notice that he’ll keep looking over just to check your okay.
You’ll realise all these little things because I’ve said them, but you will also realise a lot more that your yet to discover. Please value them, every little one means he’s letting you that little bit closer. And that’s hard for anyone.
I hope you don’t hate me for liking picture on Facebook or Instagram, because I am female, and I know it can hurt when you see an ex do that. But don’t think I’m doing it to spite you, I’m doing it because he’s my friend. I hope you don’t think that me and him can’t be friends, because I hope he will always be part of my life because he’s awesome, and a fantastic friend to have. I’d like to be friends with you to if you’d let me? Cause like I said, anyone whose close to someone I care about gets a shot with me.
I hope I meet you one day, because we’ve had something not many will experience. That side of him, and you’ll know what I mean when you experience it.
Please treat him well and please don’t hurt him, that’s all I ask.
Hes caring and a gentleman, don’t destroy that.
