We are standing on the precipice of something. It could be a relationship, or it could be the thing that keeps us up at night in 15 years, wondering "What if...?" And I want you to know that I'm not hesitant because of you. Never you. You are kind, hard working, empathetic, funny, and just good. I've seen you 3 times in the past year and I've managed to fall for you in those far too short 24-hour periods.
I'm hesitant because of me. I didn't like who I was in my last relationship. I gave so much and lost who I was and what I wanted. But you deserve me - all of me. Everything I am and everything I want. You should get all of that. So I hope that you don't mind waiting. Because I know I want you. But I also want me. I could never ask you to hold yourself back... But I'll be ecstatic if I find you at base camp after I summit this last, huge mountain. I love you.
Wait for me?
