Why, You Texting My Man Doesn’t Bother Me.

Go ahead, text-away girl. I’m not worried. In fact, I like it. I see your name pop up on his phone, sometimes I check it and sometimes I don’t. Your name is all I need to see. I know what you’re saying with out knowing what you said. I have been you before.

 

You keep me motivated. You are the exact force that keeps him close to me. You are the reason for that extra 5 minutes I sprint in my workout. You are the reason I don’t eat that damn cupcake, I write every day, I read every day, I work harder. See you are what keeps me going, because I want him. I want him really bad. So go ahead, text away, come visit, test our relationship in any way you can think of. I’m not scared. You keep me on top of my game, confident that if I met him today I could make him mine all over again, so I’m not worried.

 

I don’t need him like you do. If I needed him he would be running to you instead of staying with me. You remind me that the day I need him, is the day I lose him. The day I think he might leave me and it makes me sick, is the day you can have him. Our relationship is strong because we don’t need each other, we want each other.

Don’t get confused. We aren’t competing. The competition is over, I have the prize, but the prize needs tending to. A relationship is like the shamrock in my window, it needs watering and sunshine to live. I don’t need that shamrock but I want it, so I water it. Sometimes if I forget to water it, it begins to wilt.

 

You are my reminder, alarm, sticky note, to water my shamrock. Every text you send is a reminder for me to tend to my relationship. To keep in shape, eat right, yes to stay attractive but also to be healthy, and happy. Getting chubby isn’t good for anyone’s happiness. I play with him, challenge him, love him, support him, not because I need to, for him, but because I want to, for me. Not because I am scared of losing him to you, but because I will lose him to anyone if I don’t take care our relationship. If I don’t water the shamrock it dies, whether someone else wants it or not, it is dead.

 

The constant pursuit of what you want is what makes life fun. Why should a relationship be any different? Whether you want him or someone else, or no one, I will always want him, which is why I pursue him, making sure he knows he is wanted, but not needed. He likes to chase and so do I.

 

So bring it on, keep texting him, keep me accountable. Don’t let me get comfortable, or complacent in my relationship. Keep me on my toes, keep me happy, healthy, fun, loving, and the girl of his dreams. Keep me, Me.
