Concerned and considerate.
Low key and weathered.
Quality over quantity seeker.
My up to now life has been a series of events and crossing paths with people that have taken me not necessarily always where I was planning to go, but many times surprisingly elsewhere..... with great lessons to be learned along the way..... painful at times...... enlightening at others.
What I have learned is, relations work ONLY when there is physical attraction, emotional connection and willingness to compromise. In that sequence.
(And) to make things even more difficult, even if all above is met, by the time one adds the need for commonalities, the need for compatible preferences (public or private), AND THEN, (by the time) “the big three” are put on the table (religion, politics and sex), it really does make a lot of sense why is so difficult for someone to find and pair with the “right one”.
So, because of all that, I am here to (potentially) connect with someone who thinks / acts / behaves / views life and the world in a similar way so we can make friends.
But, if love was to come, then I would want it to be a mad love…… the kind that makes one to hitch penniless across a continent to go find her….. Where the world starts and ends in each other’s eyes.
The love I am talking about starts with crossing eyes from across a room and feeling a tingle …… it does not start with bank account or education degrees comparisons, nor it has anything to do with who has how many stamps on their passport….. and .... for all the multilinguists out there, being able to communicate with people who speak different languages comes handy when one is traveling the world, but at home one does not need to be able to speak seven different languages in order to hold someone's hand and say “I love you”.
What else I’ve learned is, formal education and degrees do not mean much if they are not backed up by someone's solid character and someone’s humbleness and humility……. Because, diplomas hanging on walls have never comforted a partner when lonely, sick or in pain.
(And)...... I would totally understand and excuse the younger ones in their 20’s for not having gotten it yet and confusing hormones with love.
But….. I would expect the older ones to know …..
Finance based choices, same as hormone (or any other non-emotions) based choices, is not love……. is an arrangement.
I guess, too may have gotten too comfortable.
So…. To conclude, love is about emotions, not about laundry lists of demands….. When is love, most things are negotiable.
Safe travels to all of you out there.
