I used to be a great seeker of knowledge when I was younger - you know, meaning of life stuff. And I was pretty intense about it! But you know that phrase - "The most important you will every learn is how to love and be loved in return" - it really spoke to me. Is developing love in one's life more important than developing an understanding of the way things work? Maybe....I have found that more and more, I admire people who are geniunely kind and compassionate over those who are incredibly smart about something. Wow, have I been trying to find the wrong type of guy?
Sure, it is important to be mentally compatible, but at the end of the day, it is the man who can feel things deeply that truly speaks to me. I seek a person who can be vulnerable and open with their feelings, who is not afraid of the extreme risk that comes from being fully present and expressing love.
