We’ve almost been dating three years now. I fall more in love with her every day. I often think back to the days before we were dating and realise how I barely even knew her then. I still hardly knew her even though she was one of my best friends. She was this mysterious, unobtainable girl who I would always be in love with. I thought I knew her well at the time, despite her being mysterious, but now I can safely say that I know everything about her.
I know how she has to turn on the air conditioning because she finds it too hot here. She’s originally from Tasmania in a place where it doesn’t get much hotter than 10 degrees a day, so now that she lives here she always has to have it on. I know her greatest dreams. I know her biggest fears. She’s opened up to me more than she’s ever opened up to anyone else, and I am grateful for everything she has ever told me. I just want to keep learning more and more about her. I would be lucky to learn about her forever.
We’re still pretty young, but I can safely say that she is the girl of my dreams and I want to be with her forever. They say that ‘when you know, you know’, well, I definitely know. I would marry her now if I could, but I know that we’re too young for now. The moment that it’s socially acceptable to marry her though, I’m going to do it.
I’ve thought about how I’m going to propose plenty of times. I know I’m going to need to find someone who can take care of our air conditioning repairs in Melbourne. I’ll get this done just before the proposal so that I know she’ll be at a comfortable temperature when I ask the very important question. I’m going to get down on one knee and tell her that there is no one else in the world for me, and that there never has been and there never will be. I’m going to commit to her for life.
