What people don’t seem to understand is that it’s the same old story over and over again: perfection is not everything. They say we expect too much, we can’t expect to find perfection, and we have to learn to be with someone who is just good enough for us.
All I ask, all I ever ask is someone who loves me as much as I love them, and I don’t need anyone to perfect me. Someone who brings what I bring into the relationship, not what they bring. I don’t need perfection, but I don’t need to give myself to anyone who perfects it.
I don’t care about presents, candlelit dinners or grand gestures, but I don’t need any of them.
I just need a deep, genuine connection with someone and I don’t like that at all. I’ve never found anyone who ticks the right boxes, who put on a great show, put me on a pedestal and adored me. Someone who was willing to spend time and effort to make things work for her, even if it meant not liking me at all.
I want to be able to trust the person I work with completely and I want someone who cares about me as much as I do. Someone who listens to me and listens to me, not just to listen and listen, but because I am worth it.
I want someone I can fall asleep with safely at night and someone who knows that he is there for me in the morning and that I love him as much as I do and can laugh at all the terrible jokes and silly faces. I move. I wanna know you got my back And you will always do that, and I want you to trust me.
I want true love, I want someone who loves me and shows me that what is important to him is important, and he wants to be my first choice, not my second or third or fourth or fifth or sixth or seventh or eighth or ninth or eleventh or twelfth or thirteenth or fifteenth. He wants a real, real connection, but he also wants someone to love him and show him that he is his first and last choice and that whatever he does is his.
I know that perfection is not possible, and I know that because I have been through everything, but I am also aware that it is not always possible.
I know relationships get difficult from time to time and I want someone who can talk to me honestly and maturely about the problems I face. I want someone to step back in difficult times, rather than run away from me. So I wanted someone who was willing to make things work, who I could rely on, who would get me on the right path.
I don’t want a perfect relationship, I just want something real and I want someone who knows what it takes to make it work. I wanted someone I could love as much as myself, who loved me for who I loved and who I loved for what they loved.
