she's the one. I want her for all time. It's not because she does everything for me but because she's the first woman to stand up to me ever. She takes none of my s***. I was being an a****** to her and she popped me in my eye and that sounds bad but I really did deserve it. I've gotten away with too much in my life and I don't know why. This girl demands the best from me and will accept nothing less. She makes me a better man, she makes me want to BE a better man everyday. But the thing is, she knows me from back in the day when I wasn't a better man, when I was immature and a bit of a player. And now she won't commit to me, even though she loves me, because she doesn't trust me. And I suppose she's right to keep her guard up on me. But I don't want to be that man anymore. She doesn't seem to believe that. How do I prove to her that I AM that man that she can count on? How do I make it clear to her the effect she's had on me? I've been in relationships before but this is very different. This is something else. I really want to be with her. I can't NOT be with her. What am I going to do? How am I going to make her believe? I've never said this about any woman but... I need her.
