my favorite Dear John letter of all time.

In 1947, years before she met John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier sent her high school boyfriend what is maybe my favorite Dear John letter of all time.

"I’ve always thought of being in love as being willing to do anything for the other person—starve to buy them bread and not mind living in Siberia with them—and I’ve always thought that every minute away from them would be hell—so looking at it that [way] I guess I’m not in love with you."

Jackie O. would have been 85 Monday. RIP.

cyclealongshore asked:
Female to male : "I'm in love with you" Same couple : Male to female: " I love you" Is there a difference in their feelings ?

yes. men are too inhibited, too innately preconditioned to say things in a stunningly romantic way which might make them sound…less-than the “machismotic” manner men speak, so much less vulnerable than women. Shame. ‘I’m in love with you’, is more emotional, deeper, than just the, ‘I love you’. That’s my spin.


 ”i love you so much…”, is great. Compare to:

sit me on couch, standing before me…work your skirt up and around your waist to better straddle my lap, straight-arming the couch-back, your face almost on-top of mine - hard eye contact saying, “listen carefully - this is so very important to me. i am so fucking in love with you…i lose the right words - it sometimes scares me.  I need you to truly understand - it’s very from my heart.  you are so deep in my life, I am so stunningly owned by you…I can’t imagine my life without you in it…in me.  I will do anything for you, any fucking thing you want or need. Anything. Simply tell me - and i’m all over that.  It’s done. You…are my life’s priority. I can say these things because they fill my heart and head, and I am so filled with your essence - OUR essence. I’ve never felt this way about another man, ever. never NEEDED to tell a man these things in my life, just YOU.

people tell the other about love every day. i bet my right shoe not often in that fashion. i need that. THIS is how it’s said, never, never forgotten.
