Our relationship had moved pretty fast, and I had just gotten out of a rough, long term one a few months prior. I was scared to let her know how strongly felt, despite the short time. I had my arms around her while we were looking at the city lights, my heart beating fast. It just came out and I told her I loved her.
Postscript: She asked me to repeat it, then turned around and told me she loved me too. I’m so happy with her and I feel like things are gonna work out for us.
