i read this from on a friends blog and it hit me like a ton of bricks……ive literally have loved exactly like this ….specifically in all these ways…..what troubles me is that my friend implies that all want this…..so why did it not work for me? more importantly, if i choose to love this way again….(still not sure i actually can) how can i be sure it will be enough? Honestly, everyone always says its enough…its what they dream of……but which ones of the 7 million or so women in this country actually mean it? Or just saying the right things on the 1st date? I hate being so suspicious……anyway, ths is what ive always believed was true and encouraged my daughters to find……just curious, is it really enough?
“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who lays under the stars & listens to your heartbeat, or stays awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the 1 who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. 1 who constantly reminds you of how much he cares & how lucky he is to have YOU. The 1 who turns to his friends & says, “thats her”
A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to. He’ll smile at you, but he’ll never laugh at your heart. He’ll brush the hair out of your eyes…send you flowers when you least expect it…stare at you during the movies even tho he paid to see it. He’ll call to say goodnight or just cause he’s thinking of you. He’ll look in your eyes & tell you you’re the most beautiful girl in the world & for the 1st time you’ll believe it
That to me is how love should feel. If I’m wrong then I guess I’ll be wrong alone won’t I? *laughs* But here’s hoping we all find this kind of love & are smart enough & lucky enough to keep it.”
Feel free to comment honestly….is this really enough for most? Are we just saying what we are suposed to say?
