He seemed smiling though he was not smiling. He smiled very often so wrinkles made his face smiling. Because of that, he looked very kind and positive person. He always rolled his eyes when I talked with him as if he did not want to miss anything what I was saying. He had common brown hair that went with his bronze skin. He was almost always in comfortable sweat suit and was carrying an electronic guitar on his shoulder. He was a person who did not stand out. He did not like fancy clothes, accessories and did not adorn himself but his thought and inner side were much deeper than any other person. "He is more interested in the inner world than outward look." One teacher who knew him said to me.
When he was my boyfriend, I could feel how mature he was. One day, I was very upset because of him. I wanted to stay with him more but he had to go. I could understand his situation but I just got upset and very disappointed. So I closed my mouth during the time we were together and acted very cool. At first, he did not know what to do as he looked at my eyes and kept patting my back. Then he knew that there was no solution to relieve my feeling and became silent. What I was surprised at that time was his ability to control his feelings. He did not make any mistakes and I got angry. Most people would be upset at my childish action. But he understood my feelings and even consoled me. Then the next time we met he said, "I really understood you and why you acted like that. But your attitude toward confliction is quite wrong. When you feel disappointed with someone, you have to try conversations with that person." I knew that he was not scolding me but advised me sincerely. After that, I could reflect how I had acted when conflicts arose and change my bad habits.
Even when the moment we were talking about parting, we listened to each other's thoughts and feelings because he had stressed on communication between us. Although he is my ex-boyfriend now, he still remains in my mind because he is a good book to me. Though our relationship is done just as I close a book after reading it, I still remember the feelings and learning from him. He was a really nice boyfriend who I could respect.
I can easily imagine your ex-boyfriend from your description because it reveals his personality as well. I think metaphor used in the last paragraph is very good, I understand the nuance and I catched that the meaning of relationship between you and him was like a reading a book. But could you specify the line 'he is a good book to me' ? it is slightly too sudden(?) to me.ReplyDelete

This person is very kind and caring. Some of the examples you provide are his outward appearances and the time you refused to talk to him.ReplyDelete
The male has brown hair and bronze skin, and dresses casually. The person listens to your words and says things like "I really understood you and why you acted like that. But your attitude toward confliction is quite wrong. When you feel disappointed with someone, you have to try conversations with that person." He stresses communication and always has and open heart. You yourself thinks that he is a good role model as well.
Some things I could not understand were phrases like "He always rolled his eyes when I talked with him as if he did not want to miss anything what I was saying." or "e still remains in my mind because he is a good book to me".
I think you chose to describe him because he was a good influence to you, even if you eventually parted with him. A few things I would like to know more about your boyfriend is how he acted around other people, not just you. Also, if you could tell me about what he liked to do when he was with you would be nice as well. And just in curiosity, maybe you could tell me what kind of music he liked, since you mentioned his guitar and all?
