I’ll never forget the day when you told me I had pretty eyes. I like you because you’re such a sweetheart. You look past all of my little imperfections. You tell me I have pretty eyes, even though your’s are clearly prettier. You give the BEST HUGS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. When I’m having a bad day, you always say and do the best things to make me laugh and smile. And on my great days, you just make them amazing. You’re so cute with your stunning smile, your gorgeous eyes, and your beautiful hair. Your sense of humor is probably what I love the most about you. I pretty much love everything about you. I could list off all of your flaws but the good things about you totally cover them up so to me, you’re perfect. There’s really no other way for me to explain it. But there it is. I like you because you’re PERFECT. Deal with it.
“Touching him was always so important to me. It was something I lived for. Little, nothing touches. My fingers against his shoulder. The outsides of our thighs touching as we squeezed together on the bus. I couldn’t explain it, but I needed it. Sometimes I imagined stitching all of our little touches together. How many hundreds of thousands of fingers brushing against each other does it take to make love?”—Jonathan Safran Foer (via loveyourchaos)
