Be her biggest fan.
Be in her corner – no matter what.
Let the very fact that you got to be part of her life captivate you.
Because the odds of both of you existing at the same time are essentially zero.
You being with her – it’s like it’s destiny – or something.
Point out her gentleness. Tell her you’re proud when she has written something well or shown someone kindness —and tell her friends, too, when you see things in them. It’s tragic how many girls don’t have an admirer.
