Post It: I Love You

I was in a long distance relationship with this guy who was so not romantically inclined and we usually tried to find time on weekends where we can be together.

Sometimes it was possible for us to spend every weekend with each other, sometimes we could only meet once a month.

For one particular weekend, I told him I was not sure if I could make it. He said he'd come anyway and wait for me.

As it turned out I couldn't make it at all. I couldn't even get home that weekend. When I finally did, I came in with a heavy sigh, knowing that he was there a while ago and I wouldn't see him for another week.

I sat down and immediately saw a Post It with a smiley face, hidden a little bit on the coffee table. As I said, this guy was not big on romantic gestures nor was he very articulate in the matter of affection. Hence his love for emoticons, I think. He used tonnes of them whenever we were on Yahoo Messenger.

That Post It put a smile on my face, indeed. On a hunch, I went to the kitchen and found another one, this one a modification of the kissing smiley. I laughed out loud because he was definitely not an artist.

I went around the house and found lots more. "Where are you??? " and, "You're still not here :(" and, "Waiting, waiting, waiting..." and more kissing smileys.. And lastly, two of them stuck together, "Know you said you probably won't be here.. Still, I thought I could be the luckiest guy in the world."

"See you next week." And that awkwardly drawn kissing smiley again. I laughed again even as a few tears threatened to burst out!

Yeah, the gestures themselves weren't what I call sweet. It's the fact that he said he'd be the luckiest guy in the world if he could see me then.<br />

But thanks for the wishes!

I would have thought it was nice, thats all. Sweet would have been...maybe he called in sick or took a few days off to be with you. I just think you deserve better. I like you and want you to have a real romantically inclined lover...DD

Confused as to why it is sweet? :)

Girls are differnt then we are. Via la differnt!!!...DD
