the little things ^_^

Post by Renata » June 23rd, 2012, 10:56 am

sometimes the smallest things someone does can take up the most room in your heart

my boyfriend slipped a note on my lunchbox; a piece of paper, it said; 'you are my everything'

I froze when I saw it & sat there eating my lunch like a silly person with the biggest smile on my face lol
everyone that passed got a smile from me .. but it wasn't really for them.

anyone ever felt like this? ... it's the best feeling in the world.

It's like they say. It's the little things that most people take for granted that really count and makes a good impact on someone's life :)

Very true. That's a quick way to have stalking or harassment charges initiated in the US, especially if you ever broke up. That is how bad it has gotten.

Renata, I can relate somehow! :D

I can find joy from the simplest of things in the world. It's a great indicator of how much you've given up in life.

While I don't like flying insects buzzing around me, I can certainly look in awe as they fly through the sky at night. And then, when you manage to see an insect up close(without them flying away), it's certainly amazing to just look at them move and act.

CJ I'll hold on to him & that little piece of paper forever :)

eurobrat & Contrarian Expatriate it's their loss; I'll consider it as less competition. lol

I know for a fact that both of my x's still have the roses I gave them dried up in a book. I have no idea why women treasure such small things.

Myself on the other hand, I try to have little to no emotional attachments to anything on this earth so I threw out love letters, photos and gifts I got from girls long ago.

Sad but true, to many American girls the gesture would either be seen as "too nice" OR "creepy."

Its funny you posted this Renata. In the last two weeks I have had text messages from ex's that said they missed the litter things I use to do. One went into great detail which was insightful. Both are in relationships and if I was the type of guy to do so I'm sure I could with little effort talk them into some side play but why diminish myself or the memory of what was...

In America, this kinda thing will only charm a woman if she is A) past her prime (25 or older), B) has already f***ed around with several bad boys in the past, C) used up and still single, and D) realizes that no other man wants her, so the poindexter who leaves her little notes is all she is going to get. Hope that's not you as well, Renata. :lol:
