I enjoy the small things in life and as I have become older everything seems to have more meaning; that's why the small things are enough for me. I recognize my blessings and feel that I live a fairly balanced life. I'm not looking for someone to make me happy; I already am. What I am looking for is someone to share in my happiness. And in return, I would like my man to want the same thing; someone who does not depend on his woman (or anyone else) to make him happy.
I think it's important for couples to define love the same way because it leads to a more successful relationship. With that said, I believe that love is more of an action word than a feeling. It's what you do in spite of what you feel. There will be days when you're not particularly "feeling" your partner. How do you act when that happens? The answer to this is very telling. One of my favorite quotes that expresses my definition of love and displays what I'm looking for is: "Love sees you at your worst, but never forgets your best; thinks you're more important than you really are; will talk with you endlessly or just sit with you in silence; is happier about your success than you are; doesn't try to know more, act smarter, or be your constant teacher; it listens even when what you have to say is not particularly interesting. That's because love thinks your important." Do you have the character and patience to substitute the word "love" in this quote with your name? If so, you just may be the person for me.
I'm at a point in my life where I want a relationship of substance that develops for the better with time. I think this type of relationship can develop with a man who has integrity. Someone who has morals and upholds his values even when no one else is looking and even when there is nothing he'll get in return. Someone who is balanced...by balanced, I mean someone who puts in a fair share of time edifying himself spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, professionally, socially, etc. (Please know that I will be doing the same). I'm looking for a man who treats women how he would want his daughter to be treated and someone who wants to be in a committed relationship when he finds his special woman. If it's not me, that's ok...we're all on a journey. But if what I have written resonates within you and you think you could be that potential someone for me, don't hesitate to reach out.
