Hold my hands and together we’ll walk through the fiery flames. Swimming in endless oceans of whatever life throws your way but with me, it would feel like a walk in the park.

Those words made me fall in love with you. I would admit, when you slid into my dm, I was expecting the regular pick up line. I was even prepared to give you a befitting reply. But you, oh darling you, you were a force to be reckoned with. I still think of how amused I was when I saw those words. At first I thought, did he steal this off the internet?? And I searched, I just had to make sure.

After hours of wasted efforts trying to prove that your words were plagiarized, I let myself see a glimmer of hope. Perhaps you weren’t like the others, you did seem different. Nothing like the men who had waltzed in and out of my life and trampled on my heart on their way out. I was convinced this was a sign. A new beginning for me, finally a chance to start over. My life was spiralling out of control and you were placed in my path to remind me that if I could just try again, I would have something worth fighting for.

And so I wrote back, eagerly waiting for your response. Turns out the message was just a prank. I laughed it off, tried to pretend that I knew. I even said I did this all the time. I was pulling your legs, I said. But deep inside my heart broke. Just when I thought someone nice were finally looking my way, fate decides to play a cruel joke on me. As I sit on the edge of the bridge I wonder, why did you have to be the catalyst?
