When the girl of my dreams told me she loved me, I would have looked around for hidden cameras if I hadn't been shocked frozen. When I finally found my voice, I asked the obvious question.
"Why? You're the most amazing woman in the world, beautiful and funny and intelligent and... Why me?"
She sighed and took my hand.
"If I can do nothing else, I hope to one day help you see yourself the way I see you."
And in all the time we had together, she never stopped trying to do just that.
She never managed it, though.
