I Fell In Love With You Slowly, And Then All At Once

“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” 

– John Green, The Fault In Our Stars

I knew soon after we met that you were going to be important to me. I just didn’t know how much.

The more I got to know about you, the more I became convinced.

And the more it scared me. 

I never wanted to make myself vulnerable to anyone else again.

It was so easy to keep my guard up in the beginning, but you slowly started tearing down my walls and fighting your way into my heart.

I knew I was starting to fall for you, but I thought I had time.  I could still comfort myself by pretending it wasn’t happening. 

And then suddenly, everything changed.

The first time you introduced me as your girlfriend, I knew I was in trouble.  It only took one word from your lips, and I was done for.  

I looked over at you, and it hit me. I realized I couldn’t lie to myself any longer.

All of the little things from the last couple of months came rushing back to me.  

All of the things I liked so much about you suddenly because the reasons that I loved you.

They had been building up for months into something much larger. 

Something I now knew with 100% certainty. 

I had fallen completely, head over heels, in love with you, and there was no turning back.
