This is where I think I differentiate myself from the pack. Have I been devastated a time or two? Of course. I don't think there are any of us here that have not been hurt. I have a theory that a person can only love as deeply as they have been hurt. That said, I am capable of amazing levels of love. I know this because I have lived those moments, and I trust that they will happen again. I pride myself and not being jaded by hurt, but strengthened by it. Molded by it. In the end, I have become a better human, friend, and lover because of it.
The woman in my life will not have to wonder where she stands with me. She will feel important to me. She will know that I love her not only because I will tell her often, but because I will do my very best to show her. I will text her or call her and tell her that I am thinking of her. I am a believer in the little things. I will know what her favorite flower is. I will remember her birthday even without all the little clues she plants around the house. I will know when she needs a hug as well as know when she needs her space. I don't know these things because I have super powers, but I know these things because I pay attention to what she says, and what she doesn't say.
So, what am I looking for in a woman you ask? The short answer is that I am looking for someone just enough like me so that we can enjoy one another's company but different enough so that she can teach me things that I've yet to learn. I am looking for someone who can become a friend first. Let's enjoy getting to know each other and have a ton of fun along the way. If all goes well, the love will happen without even trying. That is not to say that I don't understand that it takes work. I know that its not all fun and games, and I am willing to put in the work because I remember how great it is when two people are working towards the same goals.
If you want the long answer, you are going to have to put in some work of your own. Take a risk. Be a little vulnerable, and answer when I come calling. Or if you are comfortable enough to take even more risk, shoot me a message yourself and lets get this party started (so to speak).
