I know that we are just getting to know each other and that neither of us really knows where we stand.
I know that we are just at the beginning of our journey and that none of us really knows how this will develop.
I know that we have only just gotten to know each other, but the truth is that I really like you. And I’m not ashamed to say it out loud.
The truth is that I think we could have something serious and beautiful
The truth is that I can easily imagine loving you. And I think that’s what’s happening to me right now – I think I’m starting to love you.
And that’s why I have to ask you to take me seriously as you read this, what I’m about to tell you.
You might find it funny and irrelevant. But believe me, it is more than relevant to me. It might even push you away from me. But believe me, it’s the last thing I want to do.
You might think that I’m too pushy, or that I’m thinking too much, too far ahead about our relationship. But please, I beg you not to break my heart.
I’ve never spoken to you much about my past. And I’m not gonna start now.
I just want to tell you that it’s been painful and emotionally devastating for me. I will tell you that I was a person who let some fake people into my life.
That I was a girl who loved some wrong men. And a girl who’d been through a lot.
I will tell you that I have been heartbroken many times. You may think it’s no big deal and it happens to everyone, but it really broke me.
I’m gonna be honest with you, because it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
I’ve been cheated on, abandoned, and I’ve suffered severe emotional abuse. And all of this has done serious damage to my heart and soul.
All this has made me afraid that my heart will be broken again. I was afraid of going through the same thing again.
Because I know I could never stand it.
And because I know that another heartache would completely destroy what is left of me. So please, be different.
Please, don’t play with my head or my feelings.
Please, don’t treat me like dirt. Please, don’t make my life hell. Please, don’t cheat on me.
Please, don’t turn into a perpetrator. Please be the man that I think and hope you are.
I promise you, I don’t ask for much. And I don’t expect special treatment because of my past. Trust me, your love and respect will be more than enough for me.
All I ask is that you keep my feelings in mind at all times. All I ask is that you be fair and never do anything to hurt me.
Don’t misunderstand me – I’m not implying that you are the same as my ex-girlfriends. And the last thing I want to do is insult you by implying that you want to hurt me.
But I hope you understand where I’m coming from and what I’m trying to tell you. And I hope you understand why I’m telling you this now, at the beginning of our relationship.
I hope you understand that I’m writing this because I care about you and because I care about you.
Because I want you to decide if you can handle it before it goes too far.
I know that no one can know what’s going to happen in the future. And I assume that no man, from the beginning, has any intention of hurting a woman.
But all I’m asking you to do is promise me that you’ll at least try not to break my heart.
If that’s something you can’t do, I won’t hold it against you and I’ll understand. But please, be honest with me and tell me in time how things stand.
Before I get my hopes up. Before I start trusting your every word. Before I give you my heart completely.
And before it’s too late for me to save myself.
