Love is in the air

Rachel talks about love in preparation for Valentine’s Day.

In honor of Valentine’s Day this Thursday, I’m going to talk about all of the love filling up my life. Well, to be honest, I don’t really feel the love much this year. In years past, I loved waiting for Valentine’s Day because I can always count on my mom for some tasty chocolates, but for some reason, this year just seems like another year. There is an absence of excitement and wonder, which is just not like me.

I mean, I’m glad I get to share the love with my friends and family, It just seems like i’m going to be going through the motions of saying “Happy Valentine’s Day” to everyone I see with a fake smile.

There is one exception to these feelings: my boyfriend Zachary Harrellson. Everyone who knows Zach either hates him or loves him; I am one of the ones who is glad to have him in their life.

There are countless people I talk to, my best friends and even my mom, that say I could find someone better than him or that I deserve more than what he’s giving me. I tell every one of them that I respect their input, but I feel like, at least for now, he is the best person for me.

Most of you reading this have already dropped your jaws, especially if you know both me and Zach, but hear me out.

By no means is he the perfect boyfriend. Frankly, I think he could use a lot of work. But, no matter how hard things get, no matter how annoying or moody or crazy I get, he never gives up on me. He has always accepted me for who I am and that’s really all a girl can ask for.

He also tries really hard to make me happy. He does slip up, a lot, but when I tell him how I feel about it, I can tell immediately that he’s going to do better next time, and 99% of the time, he does.

I can always count on Zach to be there for me in tough times. He is the only one who can make me smile when it seems like life isn’t worth living anymore. He is also the only guy I’ve known who has had the guts to call me his girlfriend, when other guys couldn’t handle me after one week.

He may not always act like the most civilized person either. But, I know that he’ll get better. And believe it or not, our personalities are set for each other. We fully balance each other out; I calm his wild, open-minded personality down while he helps my shy, uptight personality loosen up.

I could go on and on about how I think him and I are a good match, but I know we all have  better things to do.
