Despite displaying what seems like the majority of my life online, I consider myself to be an incredibly private person, only opening up on rare occasions to a select handful of people in my life. Over the past five years, Ollie has become one of those people, to the point where, admittedly, he probably knows me better than I know myself sometimes. I was never one to keep a diary as a teenager. I tried, but after a few weeks of gossiping about boys to a piece of paper I'd lose interest and - like a lot of my early relationships - give up. Five years in, and that's never happened with Ollie and I. In fact, he's become my most long running 'diary' to date - taking in everything I say (the good and the bad), all of the secrets, all of the over-spill and absorbing every last drop. Hopefully, he feels the same way too.
You see, despite sharing my all with him without a second thought, it's almost ironic that he may never know my feelings about us, and the five years we've spent together. Love is one of those things that even I struggle to put into words. Then again, true love rarely even needs an explaination. I've never been one for public displays of affection, but five years is a long time to spend with one single human, and so to celebrate our five years together I decided have our date engraved onto the Thomas Sabo 'Little Secret' bracelet - so that there's always a part of him with me. Cheesy, maybe? But hey, it'll be our little secret.
