There is someone special for everyone

I believe everyone has a best friend, someone special just for him or her. It might take up to eighteen years for you to find them, but they’re there. It took me a long time to discover who my special someone was. Waiting on them takes a lot of patience. I was close to giving up on the idea of someone being here for me, but as soon as this thought came to me, discovering him made it vanish. I took a chance on someone who was completely opposite from me in every way and everything has worked out for the best between us. My boyfriend is my best friend. He’s my special someone that I completely trust and who knows me better than anyone else in the entire world.

Mark is my best friend, my boyfriend and my special someone. I have never given into someone as easily and as much as I have for Mark. I am socially awkward. I have a wall built around me when it comes to interacting with other people. I usually don’t open up to people and let them see the true me, Mark was the first person to knock my wall down. He’s the first person who’s seen my true self. There are times when it’s just us together and there are other times when we’ll hang out with friends together. I prefer to be alone with him, because that’s when I’m most comfortable, that’s when I feel completely open with him. He’s the only person I know who has accepted me completely, through the good and the bad. We’ve had our ups and down throughout the seven months we’ve been together, but what couple doesn’t have disagreements? Our relationship continues on and grows stronger with each day, not only because of our similarities and even our differences, but also because of our love for each other. We have a strong connection that stays together via communication, trust, compassion and understanding. He loves me and I love him, and that works for us.

Mark’s my special someone and I’m his, and that’s really all that matters. I feel as though our differences have only brought us closer together. He’s my farm boy and I’m his bookworm. I feel, as though, I am so lucky to be in love with my best friend. This I believe.
