✅ To Brush my hair

I adore this guy with all my heart, his smile, his hair, everything about him. It started as a photography project, but it quickly became something real. I wish every next episode could be shot with him.

After vacation in Bali he went back home to Australia. I didn't have an Australian visa at that time and couldn’t afford the trip.

I was feeling sad and empty and postponed the project. I stopped doing it for 3 months.

What made me fall for him? Initially, it was his appearance. He was just my type. Tall, blonde, blue-gray eyes, long hair, that smile. Who could probably resist? I couldn’t. And didn't want to.

Yet, looks can only take you so far. After a while, personality becomes more important. He was funny, kind, and lovely. I felt very alive when I was around him.

I suppose without this photo project, we might have just met on Tinder and had a drink of coconut or coffee on the beach. Boooring! And it could have turned into one of those dates where you barely remember the guy's name a month later.

However, the project provided us with a unique perspective and quickly brought us into a more intimate context. We danced together (he said he hated dancing, but he did it for me), we felt shy together, we laughed together, and he carried me up the stairs on his back.

The most touching moment for me was when I asked him to brush my hair. For me it was a very personal request. Don't know why, but for me it felt very intimate, very special. It might sound a bit odd now.

And he said: “Sure. How do you want me to do it?”

The biggest takeaway from this for me was that it's actually ok to ask someone to do something that makes you feel good. Even if it might sound a bit odd.

It's been a while since I last saw him. I kissed him in July. And now it is February.

Anyway,  next week I’m going to Australia for vacation.

We’ll go out, he said.
I will show you around, he said.
