There seem to be a lot of people waiting around for years for that magical "one" that is going to be so much more perfect than all the others they've seen, and I wonder sometimes if the real one slips quietly past us while we are caught up daydreaming about the wonderful future we're going to enjoy when they finally show up.
Care and affection are my kryptonite. Friends and family can provide almost everything a person needs in the way of a social life, and some people fair just fine with only them, but at the end of the day only your love can hug you and kiss you and snuggle into the warmth of your arms and really give an honest sh*t about how your day has gone and how it has made you feel.
So, yes, I am looking for you to be my best friend, and dinner and travel companion, and to go for long hikes (and maybe runs?), and share all the wonderful things this world has to offer, maybe even share the more boring domestic sides of everyday life, but if you are not at heart an open affectionate person, things will not work out in the end.
While a beautiful face or body will not make up for a lack of affection, a lesson I've learned well, like everyone I'm hoping my love is as attractive to me on the outside as on the inside, as the physical connection needs to be there as well as the mental and emotional ones.
