Have you ever loved someone so deeply that you break into a smile just thinking about that person? I’ve felt many kinds of love before, the love I have for myself, family and friends. I have also experienced unrequited love. I have never felt a love so deep that it scares me. It scares me because I finally have what I wanted. The kind of love that is quiet on the outside but loud on the inside, yeah I’m pretty sure I’m quoting that from somewhere, don’t judge me, thoughts are just recycled words. Well, that’s what they say.
So why should it scare me? I suppose it is because it is new to me. We fear the things we don’t know. I didn’t say I didn’t want to do it, sometimes fear itself can be the drive in doing something, the fear of fearing. Heard of that one before? Yeah, nope, neither have I, I just made that up along the way.
Let’s focus on the one thing I am writing about, the man I am absolutely, insanely in love with. The kind of guy who would bring you hot soup when you’re ill. The kind of guy who would cancel plans just to spend time with you at home. The kind of guy who knows how important it is to support and nurture your dreams. Now I have big dreams, I wasn’t going to give them up for anyone, and the only way I could make space for a man in my life was if he was going to be there with me, the same way I intend to be there for him.
Too many times in a relationship women are expected to give up their dreams to support a man’s dream.
I have cut people out of my life before for not believing in me. Trust me when I say I know how to appreciate a good man.
I have never felt so deeply for someone, I have never imagined spending the rest of my life with someone, but now I can.
He is amazing, sensitive, spontaneous, loving, supportive and respectful. These are some of the qualities I value and embed within myself. I also expect the same qualities from my partner.
Mine was a love at first sight kind of story. I fell in love so quickly. Everything just fell into place. I was a mess before, he brought order into my life.
He is my rock, my source of comfort and joy.
They say love is not about what you receive, but it is about what you give. I say that if you only give, you’re never going to receive anything. You have to allow yourself to receive the same way you should give. Many a times I have found myself in a place where I would always give more than receive, this man comes along and he is giving as much I am giving. Don’t get it? Well, basically we are perfect for one another. We have qualities that we both value in a person and are both very supportive of one another. I think if that doesn’t make a relationship I do not know what else does.
I love him with all my heart, I really do, and I know he does too.
