A Fierce Love

December 01, 2016

I am an alpha female.
I love too fiercely.
I’m not a hopeless romantic, but I don’t play games.
I know what I want. I will ask for a guy’s number. I will ask him on a date. I will tell him I like him.
Well-meaning friends often try to discourage me from doing this.
“Hold back just a little bit. You’re going to scare him away.” They say.
I don’t listen.
Because this is who I am.
If it is going to scare him now, it will scare him always. If it alarms him enough for him to run away, that won’t ever change.
But when it works, oh, it works so well.
I put my whole heart into it. I am disgustingly sentimental and will turn your world upside-down. I will love you and care for you, almost to a fault.
But, at the same time, if you leave, I will be okay.
I loved myself more than I ever loved you – not in an arrogant or self-centered way, but I know I can count on myself. I have been through more with me than I have with anyone else.
I may change your world, but you won’t change mine.
I’ll fiercely love you. I’ll do anything for you. I’ll be loyal above all else. But if that’s not what you want, I’m not afraid to let go.
I know my value. I know that I would rather face the darkness by myself than with someone who doesn’t really want to be there. And I’m not afraid anymore – not really.

Yours truly,
