Well, my girlfriend Chelsea, kept asking me what why I finally told her how I felt about her, after well, not telling her for the longest time. I figure, what better way to tell her than on a public spot on the web for everyone to see.
First, I give a good deal of credit for the timing to my Roommate Russell and friend Amber. All their taunts and pushes and suggestive comments had become too much. It wasn't that I didn't want to tell Chelsea how I felt, but I wanted to tell her at what I felt was maybe a more appropriate time. Not that I didn't mind doing it when I did. I was trying to do something special and romantic. Instead it ended up being abrupt and anything but romantic.
Second, I had strong feelings for Chelsea my first year, but didn't know if I should follow through with them. I mean I had never been in a relationship with anyway and the thought honestly scared me. Of course, I wasn't afraid of Chelsea, but more the possibility of rejection. Though never having been rejected I don't know why I was afraid.
Really I just wanted to tell her, because if I didn't I thought I would be making the biggest mistake of my life. Now I am quite possibly the happiest man on the planet. I have a beautiful, wonderful girlfriend.
