When people talk about “doing what is right”, how do they know what the right thing is? Does the royal “They” that people refer to have a secret handbook that others are unaware of? Is there really one correct solution to each dilemma in life?
Right now, I am dating this guy. I met him last April, right before I left college. He is the most amazing man I have ever met, but he is not most girl’s ideal boyfriend. He is forgetful and a flake, he works too much, he has no time for a real relationship, and he is clearly not someone who should be in a long distance relationship because he is not willing to put in the work.
My friends believe he is bad for me and my family wants me to dump him, but I think he just needs the guidance of the right girl. I fell for him for a reason and that reason surpasses all the reasons not to be with him. It is a shame that they are not reasons that can be physically seen because they are magical.
There is magic in the way he gently presses his lips to the top of my head as he hugs me, how he smiles slightly just before kissing me, in the way he holds me while we sleep, but there is more magic than anything in the way he looks at me. He has such expressive eyes and they are dead giveaways for anything he is feeling.
When I am with him, I feel as if we are the only two people on the planet. I am not afraid to get a little silly and really let loose. I never stress about straightening my hair or wearing the perfect outfit because just by looking into his eyes, I can tell he likes me for who I am.
I could never forget him and no matter how many times I tell him “It is over”, I still want him because my feelings for him are so powerful. He has changed my whole world, and I would not give him up for anyone else.
Would it be the right option for me to break up with a man, whom I love dearly, just because other people think it is right? What if there is no right option, only the option that I feel is right? Right now, my gut tells me that he and I are supposed to be together. We met when we did for a reason and who knows where will be in a few months from now, but I am just not ready to let him go.
I know that it would be the wrong choice.
