I am not the best person to ask about matters of the heart. You see my heart is broken. It has been for a long time.
Days and nights. I live. I laugh. I play. I work. Time passes, but my heart is still broken. The pain has not gone away.
I am not the best person to ask about matters of the heart since that last relationship that nearly killed my heart.
The hurt from the past is still alive in me even though I know it is for the best that the relationship ended. I just wish it had a better ending.
I know what you are feeling. You are in love and you want to tell the woman in your life in a special and unique way even though you say you are not a romantic. That is beautiful and romantic.
But I am not the right person to give you advice. You are full of hope. You are at a high.
I am not. I am at a low.
I remember when I had hope. I remember when I dreamed. I remember when I loved and thought I was loved.
I don't feel that anymore. All I feel is a broken heart, which I have in a strange and sick way grown to accept. This is why I say I am not the best person to give advice.
You say you are not a romantic, but when you love, when you love for real, the romantic will come out in you in one way or another.
If I have any advice to give you, it is to just tell her you love her. Treat her right. Respect her. Value her. Be true to her. Be honest. Be passionate. Be spontaneous. Be her friend. Be her lover. Be her partner. Be supportive. Be responsible. Be there.
If you do all these things, you will most likely see the love in your woman's eyes and feel it in your heart. Your eyes will look at her with love, and her heart will know she is loved.
You don't have to come up with fancy words. Just tell her you love her, and follow up with loving actions. Make her feel beautiful in every way. Make her feel as your number one.
I wish you find the love you are searching for, and I wish the same for me. I haven't given up on love even with this broken heart.
Matters of the heart are so complex. I hope I helped you even if it was just a little. Thank you for helping me too.

Inspired by this Tommy Torres song,
