Just like MTM, I'm making it on my own, but I don't want to be alone. I want to tell someone about my day while I lay on the sofa drinking a glass of wine or cold beer and have my feet rubbed. I want to be missed when I'm not around. I want to massage to your aching back while I hear about your day. I want to make a special meal for you so you know I'm thinking of you and want to do nice things for you. I want to make plans to see a movie together or try a new restaurant together or plan a special trip together. I want someone to make a nice meal for me, run errands for me and cheer as loudly as I do at my sons' baseball games. I want to have adult play time because it's great and it keeps us healthy and makes for a great relationship.
This takes time. I don't like to rush and I dislike hollowness and shallowness even more. I want to be your best friend and I want you to be my best friend. Give it time to grow, but have fun planting the seed.
