Letters To Crushes

Oh man. Where was this site a billion years ago when I had that mad crush on a boy & I felt I was going to explode unless I told someone but I couldn't because well, I just couldn't!

In case you're wondering what I'm rambling on about, Letters To Crushes is a simple site which lets you pour your heart out (anonymously) to your crush & to the delight of many who will get to read it including your crush (hopefully). I just love all the adorable, heartfelt posts but this particular post just slayed me (Cynthia of That Girl Cynthia loves this post too! Great minds think alike I say)...

To the girl at the table near the back of the library -

I almost asked you what was wrong the first time I saw you crying. Then I saw the book you were reading, and realized that you were crying because of it. And I was interested, because I'd never read anything that moved me that much.

I checked out the book you were reading, and guess what? I cried - just a little - too. That's how it started. Every time I go to the library, you're almost always there, usually with a completely new book. Sometimes you smile, or laugh out loud, or cry again, and when you do, I check out the book you're reading.
That was it, really, until I realized how gorgeous you are. You're not pretty in the normal kind of way, but god, when you smile, it lights up your face in the best way.

I wish you'd notice me, sitting a few tables away from you, reading the book you were reading a few days ago. I wish you'd smile at me. I don't have the guts to talk to you. I'm afraid you won't be anything at all like I imagine.

One of these days, I'll work up the courage and I'll ask you about what you're reading. And maybe you'll smile that gorgeous smile and tell me all about it, and then we'll talk about all the books we've read. But until then, thank you for the book recommendations. I love them.

Love, the boy a few tables away from yours

I love that post too! The book lover in me simply melts reading that. This is another one of my favorites; for us who hasnt found our love.

dear world,

i like the idea that somewhere, you're hiding my love! sometimes, i imagine that we're doing the same mundane things at the same time...waiting as the time counts down until the day that we finally meet.

that makes the whole world beautiful to me.

thank you
