They say that when you find “the one,” you just know; I did. The first time I saw you from across the classroom I knew somewhere deep inside of me, on a level that is far beyond my comprehension that there was something different about you - and not just because you were the most devastatingly handsome man I had ever laid eyes on, there was something much more magnetic than that about you! The first time we actually met and I got to talk to you, I knew that you were everything that I had ever looked for in a man to spend my life with, except for one minor little speed bump…you were dating someone else. So, I contented myself with being friends with you, and we were for the duration of the semester that we had class together, and then all of a sudden you were gone just as quickly as you had come into my life.
For two years, I didn’t really hear from you except for occasional visits when you and your girlfriend were broken up when we would get together to hang out as friends. There were times that I knew you wanted to be with me, but the shadow of a 6 year long love was a lot to live up to so soon, and so I pushed aside your advances. During those two years I went on many first dates, and had many first kisses - and second dates, and second kisses at that. Boys came and went, but none of them gave me that feeling that I had found what I was looking for.
One day, out of the blue a friendly Facebook comment turned into an invitation that I simply couldn’t refuse (and I’m glad I didn’t)! I met you at a bowling alley and we spent the night talking and laughing like old friends do, but there was something about you, and I couldn’t bear to part ways when the date was over - so, we didn’t. We drove down to the beach, and it was a date straight out of a movie complete with you throwing me in the ocean and the two of us sitting on the beach in soggy clothes talking way past midnight.
It was the best first date that I ever went on, and with the best guy who had ever taken me out. I went home bursting with excitement, and anxious to see you again, and I made sure that I did, because we went out again right after that, and went back to the beach where it all started. In the middle of an ordinary day, I got a kiss from the most extraordinary man that I have ever known, a kiss that I didn’t know at the time would change my whole world.
Ever since that day, I have fallen more and more in love with you, and I have never in my life been so sure that I was where I belong and with who I am supposed to be with. They say you just know when it’s right, and there isn’t a doubt in my mind that I will look back 50 years from now and say “I’m not sure how it’s even possible, but I have fallen more in love with you every day, and I have never in my life been so sure that I am where I belong and with who I am supposed to be with.”
You are my happily ever after!
I guess if I could talk to you, I would say that I’m praying for you, that I hope you find wholeness and learn to live a life that makes you happy. I pray that the scars that have been inflicted upon your heart heal, and that I have been where you are. It takes time, I know that, and I know that it feels like the hardest time of your life like you might never get by, but there is healing. There will come a day when you TRULY realize that you are fine, and that everything is going to be okay - you will finally see the sun on the other side of the storm that you’ve been walking through. Then, one day when you least expect it, after you’ve learned to love yourself, you will find a man who is beyond your wildest dreams who will love you the way you so desire. And one day, everything that was once your most painful memory becomes something to smile about that you learned from, and that made you into the person you will become. I pray that you never forget that you never walk alone because God will always be with you, and I pray that you always have the courage to step out in blind faith and give him all of the hurt and tears, because he will be faithful to catch every one of them, and wrap his love around you even in the darkest moments of your journey. I hope you know that I never intended to hurt you; I know the way that your heart is broken, and I would never wish that upon another human being. I wish that I could help you, but I know that will never be possible, so I pray for you, and know that in some way God is helping you through my prayers though you may never know.
The girl you will forever hate, but never know.

Don’t tell me what you plan to do, tell me how you intend to follow through on that plan. I plan on becoming a multi-millionaire and riding a unicorn through space, sounds great…but if I have no logical backing as to how I’m going to make that happen, my statement is essentially invalid.
This is my thought on the debate….
