How to win my heart
i. Take me to the coffee shop and let’s drink a cup or two. You know how much I love places like that and it is not because of the free wi-fi but because of the aroma of coffee that is enveloping the place. Let us sit on the corner where we could see all the people in the place then let’s have an endless conversation about everything or nothing. Let’s talk about our dreams, heartbreaks, desperation, embarrassing moments or just simple things like your favorite movie or the book that made you cry. I love talking with people over a cup of coffee because I know that the taste and the scent of it could make you comfortable. I want you to be comfortable enough with me. I want you to love the coffee as much as I do and when you finally do, maybe I’ll love you even more than how I feel with coffee.
ii. Serenade me with your guitar. I told you from the start that I love guys who could play guitar and sing a song at the same time. You know that my playlist is full of acoustic songs and I listen to them during rainy days or nights when I just wanna turn my emo button on. I want you to sing to me a song of your choice or better yet, write me a song and sing to me the lyrics. Nothing feels better than listening to a song that you know is dedicated to you. I want to fall in love with every rhythm and with every line. I want to sing a long with you even if my voice is not that of a diva’s. I want to fall in love with your music and maybe, I will fall in love with you too.
iii. Send me flowers. Don’t laugh at me like that. I know, they are kind of out of style nowadays but I like them. You see, I haven’t received an actual bouquet or even a single rose in my entire life except those that I got during my seven rose in my seven’t birthday but does that count? I love flowers because they are so delicate and beautiful and their smell is so sweet. They remind me of true love and peace. They remind me of everything beautiful in this world. I don’t know man, but I think if you ever send me a flower or two, I will feel like I am the luckiest girl on earth because flowers represent love and I will think that it is what you have for me. I’d gladly accept them and return my deepest and passionate love for you.
iv. Write me a lot of letters. They never ran out of style. Letters are still the sincerest way of proposing your love for a person, I guess. Pour your hearts out with every word that you will ever write. Tell me what you want about me. Do you find me beautiful? Do you love the way I lay my hair down? Tell it to me in a series of letters then hand them to me and I will read them again and again and again. Just the fact that someone actually bothers to write something for me really matters. I am in love words and if you ever give me words that are specially written for me, I might fall in love with the writer too. Just as when you make me fall in love with you, I will not mind on writing millions of letters for you and I don’t think they will ever be enough.
v. Let us get lost with books. Take me to a library or maybe a bookstore. Then let’s buy a lot of books and let’s read them as we are side by side in your couch. Let’s read about the misadventures of the characters. Let’s read about their one true love. Let’s read about the things that seem so real. Then, let’s talk about them. Let’s talk about how you wanted it to end or what should’ve happened if you were the author. Tell me what is your favorite part and I will tell you mine. Let’s read an infinite set of books and let’s have an endless conversation about them. Fall in love with books just like how you fell for me and maybe I will just jump to you because I know you will catch me too and we will make an epic story, way better than what was written in the books.
vi. Just be you. Yes, you. You don’t have to change yourself just to win my heart. You don’t have to try to be someone you’re not. Make me fall in love with every single word you say. Do not try hard to be cool or hot for me. Your temperature doesn’t matter as long as you are in love with me. Tell me the things that I wanted to hear and show me the glimpse of the world that you are willing to share with me. You don’t have to be handsome just like my favorite actors. You don’t have to have a beautiful voice just like my favorite singers. You don’t have to imitate everyone that is good for me. You just have to be yourself and you can win my heart effortlessly, I promise.
the part when isaac said that he don't want to take his sight back because he don't want to see the world again without him. i totally sobbed on that part
me too :(
idk about you but i think that was the most heartbreaking and most beautiful part of the book. it’s a love story but… you know what i mean :(
