From Our Readers: To the Guy I Love Who Has a Girlfriend
I remember the first time your eyes met mine. You were smiling so widely and I found it very cute. I always thought you were smiling because you were really just a happy guy. Never did it cross my mind that you were smiling because of a girl.
I remember those times when I was very tired and stressed during weekdays because of college but when Friday comes, a smile slowly spreads from my lips. I loved Fridays because Saturdays always come next. And only during Saturdays was I able to see that smile of yours because we study at the same university but we go to two different campuses.
I was only an assistant of the ROTC Secretary and you were an officer. I loved it when you would enter the office and smile at us, hoping that your smile would be for me. I loved how you held that camera and took pictures with that smile of yours that kept making my heart flutter. I prayed that someday, you would secretly take pictures of me, show them to everyone and tell them how beautiful you think I truly am. I'm not wishing for a breakup between you and your girl. I can see how happy she makes you and seeing you happy, makes me happy too. Besides, you look perfect together.
I fell in love because you were a different guy. You were the kind of guy I felt like I needed, but you were already taken. All I can hope for now, is that your relationship stays strong and both of you would stay loyal.
I loved you—I still do. But you truly love her, and that's why I loved you.
