Talking about How I Met Your Mother and our favorite character is Barney..
Me: Barney is my favorite. A close second is Marshall. Barney and his attitude remind me of myself sometimes. Haha.
Her: Oh really? What other Barney features remind you of yourself?
Me: My awesomeness, loving a good time, my dad leaving at a young age, had my heart broken by someone I cared about, and I love my friends more than they will ever know.
Her: ..sorry about the dad thing. But damn you're good, you tell that to any girl and that will make their heart melt.
Me: I'm not too sorry about it, but thanks. If he hadn't left, I might not have been the man I am today. And I like who I am, for the most part. Does "any girl" include you? Or rather, your heart?
Her: Are you kidding? Of course it does, I'd have to be the coldest hearted bitch not to have melted from that.
Me: I'm glad you're not a cold hearted bitch.
The other night..
As we were hugging, you told me my heart was beating strangely.
You said you wished I could listen to my own heart. To entertain you, I tried putting my ear to my chest.
I couldn’t do it, but I did make you smile.
I don’t know why I like making you smile so damn much.
But I do wish you could have explained what you meant by my heart beating strangely. I know I feel all tingly when I’m with you, so maybe this is just a new symptom of whatever you wanna say that I have.
Maybe you make my heart race.
Or skip beats.
Or maybe you slow it down, making me feel human, and vulnerable.
I hope that one day you are able to explain what you meant.
I hope that one day you are able to explain what you heard.
