  • I love you.

  • Hey!

  • How many were there before me?

  • What do you mean?

  • How many girls did you love before me?

  • Love

  • Five.

  • I loved five women before you.

  • What were their names?

  • Who? What? When? Where? Why?

  • Can you tell me about them?

  • Who I loved was a girl from college.

  • I wasn’t exactly close to her, but...

  • with some superficial facts and a few interactions over a semester,

  • you know, like most guys fantasizing over a girl they barely know,

  • I filled in the blanks like a fairy tale author.

  • And who she became in my head, was probably more than the reality.

  • She was a third year.

  • Sorority girl.

  • Yeah, and I was an infatuated freshman, sure, but...

  • the several times we got to spend together outside of class,

  • it really allowed me to see she also had a good heart and a bright spirit.

  • The only problem was, so did just about every other guy.

  • And while she turned me down nicely,

  • I swear there were times when it seemed like the cliche sorority girl

  • may have felt something for the typical, awkward freshman.

  • What I loved was an old friend,

  • but she was much more than just a friend.

  • We met early in college, kept in touch through the years after.

  • We saw each other grow and change

  • and through multiple relationships.

  • I saw her different boyfriends come and go.

  • She was also there for every girlfriend.

  • and breakup of mine.

  • Personality, humor, taste, it was all there.

  • Her and I were almost perfect.

  • The only thing that wasn’t perfect was our timing.

  • We were never single at the same time.

  • What we loved about each other was never enough to leave who we were with.

  • This is something we eventually had to face and accept,

  • and we had to leave behind...

  • what we had.

  • When I loved was my first girlfriend in high school.

  • It’s a bit unfair because...

  • she embodies the combination of both love and youth.

  • The feeling of young love is unique and impossible to replace or replicate

  • because we can only be that age once.

  • High school was a time of innocence, discovery, and adventure.

  • We shared these three elements together in things like our first kiss,

  • late night sneaking out,

  • and matinee movies,

  • all of which now have become...

  • a nostalgic love,

  • preserved in a time neither of us can touch, but know was there.

  • Even though we were just kids,

  • there’s not a doubt in my mind that when we were there,

  • we were in love.

  • Where I loved was the girl I met in Los Angeles.

  • I never intended to stay there that long.

  • It was just a six month internship after graduating.

  • But it all changed when I met her.

  • Soon, a year had passed, and somehow, another year after that.

  • I couldn’t leave the city.

  • I couldn’t leave her.

  • Maybe it was my desire to be on my own

  • or prove something to everyone back at home,

  • but she helped me accomplish it over there

  • with a relationship reflective of the city we were in,

  • an new energy, new experiences,

  • that really pushed me to mature more than anyone or anywhere else.

  • When people ask what city I love the most,

  • I say...

  • LA.

  • The city where I loved the most.

  • Why I loved was a close friend of mine who passed away.

  • She told me after she was diagnosed that

  • death was not what saddened her the most,

  • but the fact that she never really felt like she had fallen in love.

  • She wouldn’t get to have those emotions, good and bad,

  • of being hurt and of being held.

  • After she passed, those words stuck with me the most,

  • teaching me to see that one of the great gifts we have of being alive is

  • the ability to give and receive and even lose love.

  • There are so many like her,

  • whose lives end before having any of those experiences.

  • What a waste if we don’t strive to love in our lives.

  • She made me understand why.

  • Why waste this life not loving?

  • I understand now.

  • Youre the sixth.

  • Sixth, so which one am I then?

  • Youre none of them

  • because youre all of them.

  • You are who I love; the girl on the pedestal,

  • the fantasy, the make-believe things that are actually true.

  • You are what I love;

  • the depth, the inside jokes, the best friend.

  • You are when I love;

  • a new history is being started with you.

  • We are the young lovers our older selves will someday reminisce about.

  • You are where I love:

  • because I’d go anywhere, just to be with you.

  • You are why I love

  • because before you, I didn’t truly understand what I was looking for.

  • Now that we found each other,

  • youve given my past and future meaning.

  • You are the sixth.

  • You are the last.

  • So, how many were there before me?

  • Five as well.

  • What were their names?

  • Who? What? When? Where? Why?

I love you.
