Someone who learns the chords of your favorite song so they can play it on their guitar.
Someone who learns the directions to your favorite restaurant so they can drive you there on anniversaries.
Someone who learns the quotes from your favorite movie so they can make you smile when you need cheering up.
Someone who learns what you prefer on your pizza and hamburgers and hotdogs so they can order the right thing without having to keep asking.
Someone who learns your favorite brand of cereal and soda and beer so they can stock their fridge with all the right things.
Someone who learns the way your features change when you’re upset and when you’re angry and when you’re in the mood so they always know what to expect from you.
Someone who learns the names of all of your aunts and uncles and cousins so they can fit in at family gatherings.
Someone who even learns the names of your favorite TV characters so they can keep up when you talk about the latest episode.
The best relationship of your life will be with someone who pays close attention. Someone who makes a point to learn something new about you or alongside you every single day.
