Sometimes- people don’t really know what love means until they loose it, others once they have it. I’ve always known what love from my family felt like (or more specifically Mom and Dad- who is actually my stepdad). They’ve always been great about showering us with love and attention. But I wasn’t sure I would ever find a guy that would be able to show love. In my early twenties, those first fragile years of having a relationship, all I saw in the “I love yous” was manipulations, empty promises, and at the end of the day- broken hearts. Now, it’s not like I had a ton of relationships- I really was quick to see through some of the “frauds”, but at the end of the day, I saw a lot of friends fall in and out of “love.
And then I met HIM. My Schatz. Schatz is the treasure of my heart (haha- German nerds, you’ll see what I did there). He has swept me completely and utterly off my feet. He didn’t do it with diamonds or expensive things (though any girl, should of course never say no to those things). Instead, he did it with small things. He works a sporadic schedule- which is cool in one instance because my online job lets me be online on instant messanger whenever I want to be. So, literally the day after our first official date, he sent me a virtual mixtape via youtube links all day long.
You see- Schatz is like a music genius. Okay, not in the sense that he writes or plays music. But he has a memory for music and has a song for any occasion. But I had never ever had a guy put together that oft seen in movies trick of a mixtape. I can tell you why it’s used so often- because it works.
And that’s how our silly love affair started, with wonderful songs sent to me on a cold winter day. Laying the foundation for feeling like the princess in his world. My Schatz is amazing.
