On January 20th 2017 I had the pleasure to meet an absolutely beautiful girl. It was like a scene in a movie, I saw here from across the bar and thought to myself, "That’s hands- down the most attractive girl here."
I promptly mustered all my courage and went and sat next to her and greeted her with the not so smooth but surprisingly effective “Hey you are very good looking." She giggled and we started to talk. Later she mentioned something about liking to kiss guys she meets at bars and at this point in time my brain simply ceased to function and when into basic honesty mode. I explained to her how that's such waste of her potential and that she needs to find someone who appreciates her and values her as a person and not just a very very attractive body. She thought this was cute.
She had to go shortly afterwards and i thought that all hope had slipped but two days later, on January 22nd it was both our birthdays and i had to return to university on the 24th and she was leaving on a gap year to work in Netherlands .I used every ounce of strength i had and put away my normally very prominent fear of rejection and asked her if she would like to go on a picnic with me.
To my absolute jubilation she said yes.
It was a magical night filled with snacks, sitting on the beach, sharing music, discussing our hopes and dreams. It was possibly the best 4 hours of my life. But here lies the problem. I met an amazing girl who is smart and cute and attractive and funny and every positive adjective i can think of, but i only got to spend about 5 hours in total with her.
We Skype regularly, text and all that but simply put. It's just not enough for me. I need to see her again. I want us to spend time together to see if this relationship can work in practice because she might be coming to study at my university next year in part due to me and I have to possibly do an extra year since i wanted to go overseas at the end of my course but now i want to stay for her. This is why i feel that it is so important that i go visit her. I will admit that i have never left my country and visiting Europe has always been a dream as well. So two birds with one stone seems good.
So if you're a person with a soft spot for young love and some spare cash lying around i would appreciated it tremendously. Help a boy get a girl out of his league.
Who will benefit: Me and her. There is no bigger cause here, no child who needs lifesaving medication, just two young people who want a chance at love.
What the fund will be used for: A plane ticket mostly. I’m a full time student with some extracurricular activities that consume most of my free time so i can't get a job and my family is not well off so i can’t ask them. Any extra money will be spent on spoiling the girl and donated to a local animal shelter. I'm not very materialistic, i just need the ticket.
How soon: I would have loved to have gone during my April holiday but that is way too soon now so July 2017 is my next Goal.
What is will mean to me: I have always considered myself to have a decent vocabulary but it's hard to find words to describe what something like this would mean to me. I have always tried to believe in the kindness of strangers and held the belief that there is more good in the world than people think. (My option B if this doesn't work was even to hitchhike but my mom would have a heart attack). Thinking of ways to get there or get a ticket has been consuming my thoughts for the last few weeks and its making me quite depressed to not be able to think of a way.
How i can give back: I'm still deciding exactly how i can give back to people if they choose to donate. I was thinking a couple of pictures and a letter to everyone that donates and personal Skype call to everybody to donates more than 20 bucks. Let me know if you have a better suggestion.
Thank you if you took the time to reads this. <3
This is the only real picture I have of us and was taken that night at the bar.
