He looked in to my eyes, without blinking once, and told me how he loved me just the way I am — that I didn’t have to change. I always thought there was something wrong with me, that I had to change somehow to get a guy. But not my man. He thinks all the goofy, silly things I do like feeding the squirrels and the ducks on campus are the cutest things ever. After that, I knew I loved him.
—One Lucky Ducky
Postscript: We’ve been dating for about seven months. It’s been great and we’re super happy. We feed the squirrels together every day.

A few weeks after we started dating, he “gave me a song” saying it reminded him of me. It was “Green Eyes” by Coldplay. I’d always wanted a song and I hadn’t even told him that.
Postscript: Three and a half years later, I still tear up when I hear the song. He’ll read this and call me silly and then kiss me.

We were laying on my bed, my head on his chest, when he said he had something important to tell me. When I sat up, I knew exactly what he was going to say, so I said “Me too.” We smiled at each other and that was that.
Postscript: He loved his job more, and gave up on “us” when I told him he was losing me two years later.

He took me mattress shopping with him. I’d been staying over a lot and his bed wasn’t big enough for both of us, so he let me go with him and let me help choose it. I knew there were going to be many more sleepovers and he wanted me to be comfortable in his bed, and I loved him for this.
Postscript: So we may not be together for that long, but we’re still together!

I woke up with a guy that I had just started dating and he randomly blurted out that I was as beautiful and unique as a snowflake.
Postscript: Despite feeling that way, he didn’t want a relationship, so the snowflake melted.
