Thank you for being the guy I needed to know existed.
You remember giving them a list of reasons for why it would not work, and how they should find someone else. You remember giving them the reasons why they should just walk away. But they did not go anywhere, they told you that they don’t want anyone else and they refused to let go.
Maybe their interests become your own or maybe they don’t, but your love for them should give you the courage to want to be better and to be curious enough to always try.
You can’t just point out some random person and look to them to make you happy. You need a spark. You need that silly grin plastered across your face whenever you think of their name or how you met. You need that rush comes whenever your phone pings and it’s them. You need to date someone who isn’t an afterthought.
My first encounter with the beast that is a hideous first date came at the impressionable age of 16.
Think about the end goal – do you want to be married and start a family? Are you just looking for someone to have fun with for a while? Figuring this out can help reorient what types of dates you pursue.
We really are the “Comeback City”.
Just remember: there’s no such thing as perfect. Just perfect for you.
We must choose to fall in love again each morning — find new creases in the same page, new freckles on the same back, new algorithms to the same familiar smile. We must ensure that our love remains a journey.
It sounds crazy, but watching Chris, Nick, Josh and Marcus made me think that maybe I’d been going about this whole thing all wrong.
