You Have To Believe Good Guys Still Exist

By Kristen Corley

Believe that good guys still exist.

The ones that take you on proper dinner dates. From picking you up to driving you home. The ones who reach for the bill first. The ones who open your doors and pull out your chair. Who stand when you excuse yourself from the table.

Believe that good guys still exist.

The ones who walk on the outside of the sidewalk. Then tell you to be careful when crossing. The ones who actually walk around with a handkerchief. And send flowers to your office.

Believe good guys still exist.

The ones who don’t want to play games or mess with your head but answer your texts immediately regardless of the time. The ones who don’t mind talking on the phone.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who want to meet your family and want you to meet theirs. Who don’t care how long they have to travel to see you. They do. The ones who keep their word and remember little details. They are the ones who enjoy seeing you as much as you like seeing them.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who support you and your dreams and goals. The ones who take the time to learn you. The ones who kiss you just because. And something about it just feels like the right kiss.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who ask you if you’re okay and wait to hear your answer. Who reach for your hand in the middle of the night and will kiss your forehead when they wake up. The ones who don’t mind what you look like at your worst. But still push you to be your best. The ones who bring you to things to meet their friends and make you feel a part of it.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who say things like: ‘Get home safely.’ ‘Be careful.’ ‘Have fun tonight.’‘I’m proud of you.’ ‘How was your day?’

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who know when to apologize and how to make it right. The ones who stand by you when you’re being difficult. The ones who hold you when you’re worried and fix the problem at hand like it wasn’t that big of a deal.

The ones who laugh with you over silly things and don’t make silences awkward.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who show up when it matters. Someone you can count on.

The ones you nap next to and it was like the best sleep of your life.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who know how to love someone right. The ones who make you better. The ones who make you happier. The ones who make you heal from the past they don’t ask about until you’re ready to talk about it.

Believe good guys exist.

The ones who make you feel like you are the most beautiful girl in the world. Because they never stop saying you’re pretty even in moments you don’t believe it.

Believe good guys exist.

And when you find a guy like this never stop valuing and appreciating him. Because it wasn’t too long ago, you can recall thinking back to a time where you wonder if someone like him existed.
