I tried to push the nice guy away. When he wouldn’t go away, I pushed harder. Still, he didn’t give up and every time I pushed harder, he pulled me in even more.
He ignored my fears and forced me to grow. He fought me for my passions when I was too busy writing them off. He forgot my wants and focused on everything I needed. Then I walked away because he was too nice.
So, he let me walk away and he called it a day. Everyone always says there are plenty of fish in the sea, and he let me go knowing this, even though it hurt.
What I don’t know is that someone else is out there, and she won’t be as foolish as me. When I realized that all I really want is the nice guy who cares about me too much, it’s going to be too late. Some other girl will be able to see how great he is, and she won’t waste a minute.
So I lost my Ted Mosby…
He may have loved you too soon and it was too crazy and too much, but guys like Mosby don’t happen every day. They happen never. He got you the blue French horn, and he made you feel love when love was no longer a part of your vocabulary.
To the girls who let the nice guy go,
He was the guy you were supposed to end up with, who makes everything change. I just wish you’d see it before another girl does because at the end of the day, everyone, including the nice guy you don’t deserve, is rooting only for you.
Sincerely, the girl who was too late
