Listen to me.
It’s okay to wait for someone… great.
Like, REALLY great.
Some will tell you “just find someone decent” or “he’s not bad, give him a chance.”
You know what?
Some want to doom you to their mediocrity.
Don’t have any of it.
You’re better than that.
It’s okay to demand to be treated right.
From the start.
Whether you’re a man or a woman, demand it from men or women.
And from yourself.
It’s the only way you’ll get something great.
And if you already have it…
Man, if you have it, hold on tight.
Be thankful for it.
Don’t squander it.
Fight for it.
You deserve it.
You deserve someone who is off their ass in love with you.
I mean, don’t you want those moments?
Those moments right after. When you’re breathing is just getting back to normal. When endorphins are slow-dancing with memories. When your hand traces recently sun-freckled skin in some unrecognizable pattern that all the world’s code breakers would agree means “love.”. When shadows fill the room, yet all you feel is light. Those moments when there is no need to speak. When all thoughts are part of a collective. When there is no judging. There is no fear. When past mistakes are celebrated because of where they have lead. Right there. To that moment.
When you are absolutely, positively sure that this is where you should be.
Wait for that someone.
Have those moments.
Have so many of those moments.
And never forget that it’s okay.
And so are you.
