That’s Emily’s Boyfriend: This Kid

“I have been through so many relationships in which it seemed like each of us were holding back from expressing the true extent of our feelings. And for what? To hold onto some sense of power? To keep from letting the other one know how much they could truly hurt us? It’s self-defeating, exhausting, and has made me more than ready to be in a relationship based on honesty and overwhelming love. That is why I have chosen to enter into a relationship with the boy who has been making YouTube videos about how beautiful I am and how much he loves me, though it is unclear whether or not we have ever actually spoken to each other. I know what you’re thinking, and I’ll tell you that at first I wasn’t convinced either. A boy who makes videos about how much he loves me and puts them on YouTube? I know! But to borrow a line from the The Perks of Being A Wallflower trailer, “we accept the love we think we deserve.” And it wasn’t until his most recent six-minute long video, and the epilogue that follows, that I was convinced that he is what I truly deserved. I love him. I love him, I love him, I love him.” – Emily

We all have to go through a lot of pain to come up with ideas for how to describe our feelings, but I’m glad this kid found the perfect way to do it, and the perfect shirt to do it in. God bless these two lovebirds. (Thanks for the tip, djfreshie!)
