Date Someone Who Changes Everything You Thought You Knew About Love

Still Miracle

Date someone who makes your stomach churn when you first see them because you know, and you can feel in your bones, that they are going to make a big difference in your life. Date someone who rocks your boat. Someone who brings curiosity in your mind. Someone you want to explore, until you reach the deepest part of their soul, and find out what makes them so intriguing to you.

Date someone who challenges the way you think, the way you perceive the world, the way you react and feel on certain situations. Date someone who doesn’t want you to stay comfortable all the time because they believe that when you start feeling cozy in your life – you stop growing. They want you to embrace the beauty of uncertainties, and the excitement of not knowing exactly what’s going to happen next. They want you to spend your daily life not being tied up to a schedule, to a certain format, to following rules.

Date someone who defies everything that is written about love. Someone who doesn’t listen to love advice on the radio, and doesn’t conform into a specific convention on how to love.

Date someone who makes you realize that there are so many things you don’t know about love. Someone who’s suddenly the reason why you want to take back everything that you have said about, or for, or against, love. Someone who makes you question all the lessons you thought you knew and learned about love.

Choose to take a risk with someone who shows you that love has no religion, skin color, certain language, race, educational background, and social status. Someone who proves to you that love is not learned. It cannot be forced. It is not something that is handed to you like a food that you need to eat. Because to them, love is nothing but a natural reaction.

Love is something that you feel when you first look at someone, and your world seems to collapse right in front of your eyes. Love is a wild, uncontrollable emotion that hits you hard in the heart when you least expect it.

And always select the person who’s fully committed to grow in a relationship with you.

Never feel intimidated by their power to change your outlook in love, in life, in yourself. Don’t be insecure by the way they influence your thoughts and beliefs. Because they only want the best for you, for both of you. They think that change is necessary to maintain a love that doesn’t burn out. A love that is continually transforming to become better day by day.

Don’t be scared to date someone who doesn’t always agree with you. Sometimes you need a person who’s going to tell you the truth, to point out your mistakes, to remind you that you are not perfect – and why it’s okay. You deserve someone who doesn’t only sit in front of you and watch you fall apart, but instead picks you up and helps you correct what’s wrong in the way you love.

Date someone who wants you to change for yourself, and not for them. Someone who teaches you something about love that you haven’t known before. Someone who keeps your relationship with them always interesting, always running, and never stopping.

Because not a single day you spend with them is dull. They keep making you question, and think, in a good way.

Date someone who freaks you out by the amount of knowledge and expertise they have about love. Someone who’s willing to share to you not only their heart, not only their learning, but also their whole life with you, until the end of time. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
