One time, I spent 3 hours cooking an extravagant meal for a man only to be told “I don’t really like that. I think I want Wendy’s tonight.”
Tonight, my boyfriend said “thank you for cooking” after I put frozen chicken strips in the oven.
One time, I spent my entire paycheck on a man’s Christmas present and got nothing in return.
Now, my boyfriend surprises me with things randomly, just because.
One time, I had to drive around late at night to “find” the guy I was dating, only to realize my worst fears of where he was came true.
Now, nights are reserved for my boyfriend and I to watch our Netflix shows.
One time, I thought forever was being yelled at daily over the smallest, most unimportant things.
Now I know I’d much rather it be with the man I just spent 10 minutes trying to nail in the head with a cheese-it because he hit me with one when I wasn’t looking.
