Make Your Relationship Work Again: Happily Ever After

Sketch of child reading books

My boyfriend and I were together for about a year and we were living together for the latter 4 months of our relationship. With all the stress from our jobs and other factors we started to argue more and more.

Eventually we decided to take a break. After about a month of being just friends, but still roommates I decided to do something really sweet for Valentine’s Day which was about a month away. One day, I got out of my classes at noon and got started. I put together a children’s book telling the story of Derek and I; how we met … and how we split up. And I ended by drawing a huge question mark and the following, „What happens next is up to you. To be continued. …” I typed it all out and glued it all on construction paper and I even illustrated it.

Afterwards, I had it laminated. I decided to give it to him early. So I snuck over to his work and placed it in his car in the driver’s seat with a little love letter. As soon as he got off work and found it he called me on his cell and read it aloud.

He said it was the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for him. And now, we are together again.
