I'll be the first to admit that I'm no easy catch. I'm impatient and sassy. "Low maintenance" will never be a term used to describe me, but I bring so much to the table.
If you stick around long enough, you'll figure out that I'm much more than whatever your first impression of me was. But nothing worthwhile ever comes easy.
So if you're going to love me, there are a few things you should know first.
Like everyone, I need security. I want to feel safe revealing my heart to you and be confident in the bond we create. I want to know that you'll always be there to catch me when I fall.
But I also crave some adventure too. I need someone who will swoop in and lead me down an uncertain path. I want somebody who will jump in the car with me, with the music so loud we can't hear ourselves think.
Take my hand and sweep me away, no destination in mind, no questions asked.
I want someone who will respect my 'Type-A' personality and only wreck my plans with even better ones. I don't need another man to make me the joker's heart.
I need stability as much as I need spontaneity.
I need you to know how to swallow your pride and keep your love stronger than your anger. I need someone who understands that life gets messy but that doesn't mean you give up. I need you to know that hard times mean you fight instead of quit.
I want to be pursued the way I deserve.
Don't second-guess me and don't make me second-guess you because I don't need any games. I don't have the time or energy to be played with.
Love me the way you wish everyone would love you, the way that you wish you had known to love in the past.
I need someone who knows that love is a commitment and not a fleeting feeling.
So if you're going to take me on, be prepared to love me with everything you have. Be ready to fall for my complicated, intriguing, genuine heart and to love it the way it's meant to be.
