The title reminds me of an old Joey Kidney video.
Anyway, I feel like every girl who has never had her first kiss and has never been romantically involved in a relationship has fantasized hardcore about the person she will fall in love with (or at least wants to fall in love with).
Well… that’s what this blog post is– a potluck of thoughts I’ve had about the person I want to fall in love with (this is only being posted because it’s the week of Valentine’s Day and kind of relates).
For starters, I simply want to fall in love. I want to fall madly in love with a good looking man (not boy) who has a good looking heart. He’ll understand that I’d rather chill or go to the movies or a diner than constantly go on big, extravagant, expensive dates. He knows I’d rather have a beautiful bouquet of flowers than an overpriced pair of (potentially fake) diamond studs. He will be a man of God; he will fight the works of the flesh and will have the fruits of the Spirit (see Galatians 5:19-23). I want to fall in love with someone who will understand the decisions I made in the past that make me who I am (even if they weren’t the greatest decisions). He’ll pass the family, best friend, and (most importantly) the dog test. He will travel and explore with me; he’ll make me laugh so hard I’ll cry (which actually isn’t that hard). He’ll accept/love my quirks, hobbies, insecurities, weirdness, etc. He’ll be my shoulder to cry on, drool on, depend on. He won’t be clingy and will actually hang out with his friends but will also let me hang out with them too (I’m pretty good at getting along with people; it’s all about finding common ground). We’ll share responsibilities, and we’ll respect each other and trust each other through thick and thin. When things get hard and I’m on the verge of going crazy (not the good kind), he won’t run away. I want to fall in love with someone who won’t let me be the one who got away because he will never let me go. He will never cheat because he knows no one else compares. He better not put his hands on me– period point blank. He will not hesitate to take a bullet for me, even in the midst of a storm. I have a dream of getting married (wedding, not eloping), and I hope the love of my life will want to too. We’ll face trials together, but we’ll overcome together. During the day, we’ll do our own thing (whatever that will be; it’ll probably vary), but when it’s time to sleep, we’ll cuddle and snuggle (at least it’ll start off that way; I’m a wild sleeper). As we grow old, he will never fail to make me feel young.
Of course, this is all just a fantasy.
“When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to the other. The presence that’s felt through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen.
Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand the notion of time or distance. They only know it feels right to be with one another.”
