I love a romantic comedy. Afterall, what girl doesn't want to be swept off her feet by a charming and handsome hero she can call her own? However....at some point during almost every romantic comedy, the female lead suddenly trips and falls, stumbling helplessly over something ridiculous like a leaf, and then some Matthew McConaughey type either whips around the corner just in the nick of time to save her or is clumsily pulled down along with her. That event predictably leads to the magical moment of their first kiss. Please. I fall ALL the time. You know who comes and gets me? The bouncer.
That being said, I was recently asked if marriage was something I was avoiding. My response was that I don't have a problem with marriage itself. In fact, I'd love to get married and have a baby or two, depending on how expensive they are. I just don't want to get divorced. A divorce is painful and bad and there's a lot of paperwork required, and I have a huge aversion to paperwork. If you are smiling at this point then there's a good chance you have a sense of humor which increases our chances of not only getting along, but getting each other. I can laugh at myself and really do believe that laughter is medicine for the soul.
A little about me: I'm driven and know what I want out of this life. I have little interest in drama and seek to constantly improve and grow from life's lessons and all that they are teaching me. No one is immune to troubles or pain so I try not to judge or compare myself to others. I will seek out the good in others and believe in second, third, even seventy times seven chances. In my world, mercy rules.
I seek to surround myself with positive, loving, uplifting and respectful people and cherish my friends and family. I am kind of old fashioned when it comes to dating and consider myself polite and poised and expect to be treated like a lady. I do appreciate it when a man opens doors for me, is the first to call after a date and in the beginning even initiates advancing the relationship to the something more than "just dating"
I think it does take a truly unique and strong man to balance me; a strong quiet confidence type who is graceful, patient, not quick to anger and has a genuine sweet core.
I want someone who I can feel vulnerable with and cherished by and who allows my light to show by shining his. Someone who believes in and has his own personal journey with God that I get to be a part of. Someone who I can be transparent before, exposing all my truths to, knowing that in his eyes is me.
It's the way I roll my eyes at him and give him that look like "I don't know why I love you but I do" when he's reading the morning newspaper and makes a political comment that I strongly disagree with. It's how excited I get when I see his number show up on a text in the middle of the afternoon just to say "hi". It's the way he looks at me while wearing his oversized T-Shirt to bed, which I affectionately refer to as my lucky shirt and refuse to go out of town without packing it. It's a kiss, it's a soft touch, it's a good cry and a long walk holding hands and rocking out the rest of our lives, going grey and holding hands on a front porch together. It's about living a healthy lifestyle because you know it helps us to live a better life. We stick by each others side and have each others backs. And rainbows will flood our hearts and music will flood our minds, like a new Universe achieving soft unity. Pleasure paradise to find.
