ambassador- n. a diplomatic official of the highest rank sent by a government to represent it on a temporary mission, as for negotiating a treaty.
this is basically what we are in the beginning of a relationship, an ambassador. we represent ourselves in the best way possible, highlighting our greatest attributes and hiding our shortcomings. if you can push through the facade that is meant to hide what we don't want seen and get to what's "real", then and only then will you know someone's true intentions.
i would love to tell you about this guy i'm seeing, who seems too good to be true. i want you to know all about him and how he cooked me dinner and serenaded me with his guitar and voice. how he chose all my favorite songs for dinner so that i could really enjoy it. he is detailed like that, wanting everything to be perfect. i want to fill you in on every last detail, but i won't. i won't because i am terrified that either he is "the one" or he's not the one and i'm blowing this way out of proportion. but he feels it too, the click that's there when we see each other. it's as if i've known him a million years and we just met.
so i will continue to take it slow; this is the first time i've felt this way. it's like a good book. you start reading, immediately knowing its potential, and although you want to skip to the last few pages to see what happens you resist. you take it slow, letting the words overcome your emotions, taking your time getting to know the characters. you know in the long run it will be worth it because you were patient and you will enjoy the book that much more.
but a peek at the end of this one would be nice. ;)
