Why I Won't Marry You.

It's really very silly; I love you too much.

I don't want you to know what size my jeans really are, or how much brown sugar I put on my oatmeal.

I don't want you to hear my sleepy-seal giggle when I get tired.

I don't want you to see how messy my room and bathroom actually get when my life gets going, or what my hair looks like when I go a day without washing it.

I don't want you to realize how many bad habits I have.

I don't want you to know that I can go weeks and months without praying or cracking open my Bible.

I don't want you to see me cry when something sends me over the edge - like burnt toast after a really hard week. 

I just don't want you to see me that way... I just don't want you to stop loving me.

I want things to stay the way they are.

Some one who sees you at your worst will love you extensively more than someone who only ever sees you at your best. :)

Oh, I hear you! I hate for people to see my less than perfect self. The good news is, for everyone, there is someone who will love them despite (and because of) their quirks and messed-up-ness. Finding that is worth so much.
