I wish...

...that someday, I'll stand onstage in a beautifully decorated ballroom full of friends and family and say this poem to the person I love the most:

Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always.
A promise, like a reward for persisting through life so long alone.
The belief in each other and the possibility of love.
A decision... to ignore or simply rise above the pain of the past.
The covenant... which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties.
The celebration of the chance taken... and the challenge that lies ahead.
For two will always be stronger than one.
Like a team, braced against the tempest of the world.
And love will always be the guiding force in our lives.
For tonight is mere formality...
Only an announcement to the world for feelings long held.
Promises made long ago in the sacred space of our hearts.
I love you, baby... forever and always.

Characteristics of THE PLAYER...

What you are to him... (at least, what he wants you to believe you are to him..)
** you are his 1st girlfriend.
** you are his 1st girlfriend after a long long relationship with someone who 'betrayed' him.
** you are the 1st girl he brought home to show his parents/family.
** you are the 1st girl that his mom 'approves' of and likes.
** you are the only girl he told his life to and he can never talk this way to his ex or his bestfriend, only you know this side of him.

What he is to you...
** he has changed you and 'made' you a better person.
** he is so deep, often shy at times, bold at times.
** he does the sweetest things and say the sweetest words.
** he sings to you and gives you a song which is 'our song' and says no one else has he shared this song with before.

The things he says to you...
** he has never dumped a girl before, he would rather be a 'gentleman' and let her leave him instead.

When breaking-up, the things he says to you...
** "I don't love you anymore"
** "It hurts me more than it hurts you but I have to do this"
** "It's my job, my work, it will be unfair to you if I travel"
** "It would be less painful for you if we don't see each other after this, don't call and don't keep in contact"
** "There is no 3rd party"

You see, the things he say to you when he wants a break-up, compare that with what he is to you... it doesn't add up! How can a person who was once deeply in love "don't love you anymore". No reason? Exactly, no reasons.. this is the easiest escape for A PLAYER.

Not to criticise or to judge, but hopefully to bring some awareness to you, my dear.

One day (perhaps soon, perhaps a few years later)... you will think back on what he says, his words and reflect. Then you will realise that they are no better than words used to manipulate someone. This is deep, truly deep. You may not understand this now since you still harbour hope inside (hope mixed with a little feeling of revenge, to get even..) and you still see things in 3-dimensions. But one day, you will see a 4th-dimension to this. All PLAYERS have one simple rule they live by..... "Tell the girl what she wants to hear"

It's as simple as that.

Wish you well and hope you come out from this in one piece!
