It's not just in fantasy movies or cheesy Rom-Coms. Although, sometimes it feels easier to write love off as such... a fantasy.
I know you get lonely and think maybe you're being too picky or too close-minded about what kind of guy you want. That may be true when it comes to having a preferred eye color or favorite hairstyle, but when it comes down to the things the matter, settling is the worst thing you can do.
Settling for someone is not only a disservice to yourself, but also to the person you're with. They also want real love, not blanket compatibility.
You deserve the butterflies when you see his name pop up on your phone. You deserve someone who listens intently to you, not because they want something, but because they are genuinely interested in what you have to say. Someone whose love is worth preserving for a lifetime.
You deserve a love that is based on mutual respect, combined with a rampant passion for each other… a love that sees you as special, and you view him the same way.
Magic may not exist, but falling in love should feel pretty darn close to it.
You deserve someone who sees in you the things you don't see in yourself, the things that make you special. He should remind you, you are special, without even saying it. He will probably love all the things you hate about yourself.
His annoying habits will look cute to you. When he's not with you, you'll miss the way he slurps his coffee up or hums while reading the news on his phone. That's love.
Ordinary love fades. Real love endures.
It might not always be perfect, but real love will be worth striving for. So, keep looking.
You deserve it.
