Dear Emily,

Your eyes aren't fooling you. This is a very minor, non-serious gesture! If the edible arrangement had kiwis then this would be a serious gesture, everyone knows they're the best fruit.

Okay cool I opened with a joke, now here goes:

I totally get that coming out of a bad time and meeting someone new can be a lot. Even though it was at a bad time for both of us I had lots of fun getting to know you! Right now I'm across the ocean watching a red sun slip under a golden sky, and you're on my mind.

Since we weren't the kind of people who could take somebody else into our weird little worlds, I'm sending this to say I'm daydreaming about a version of you and me where we are those people.

Maybe those people fit really well in that spot on the green couch with tea in our hands and a stack of DC movies on our Netflix list;

Maybe there's amazing sex and late mornings that become afternoons lying in bed eating delivery;

Maybe there are day trips to Sombrio beach and East Sooke Park because hey...Fuck it! Life is short so let's make it fun!

…or maybe you're not feeling it. And that couch just doesn't have room...

In which case enjoy the treat and i hope your co-workers are jealous ;)

But! I should be back on that side of the world in a couple of weeks and I'm excited to hear your thoughts Emily :) Sending this was about expressing my thoughts but also about having fun. I think being open about feelings and dates can be great but doesn’t have to be hard, for me the hardest part has always been being honest about who I am and hoping someone accepts that.

With this letter I'm trying to go with open and genuine for once, instead of trying to be charming and always having the right words to say; the hard part definitely was trying to keep the tone even between expressing those thoughts and still having personality.

P.S. If I'm being TOTALLY honest, it was when we were watching Winchester and that dead thing stuck its gross finger out of the pipe towards that doctor's ear that I knew I liked you. Anyone who could throw their head back and scream like that at a horror movie is hard to forget :p

And you are.
