We live in a time where flings and fleeting moments are frequent, but relationships and strong feelings are hard to come by.
In a generation where you form connections by swiping left or right, and stare at phone screens instead of into one another’s eyes, it has become rare to find someone who makes you happy. I mean, truly, genuinely, over the moon, can’t stop smiling, feeling giddy, happy.
But that person is so worth the wait.
The person who will put a smile on your face each and every day. That’s the person worth holding out for.
Date someone who makes you excited to get out of bed in the morning because you feel stronger with them by your side.
Date someone who you want to come home to after a hard day at work, because you know seeing them and being in their arms will make everything better.
Wait for the person who makes you smile the second you answer your phone, because just hearing their voice on the other end gives you butterflies and makes your heart beat faster.
Date someone who you want to fall asleep next to every night, and wake up with every morning, because just opening your eyes and seeing them brings a smile to your face.
Date someone who makes you believe in love. Someone who you can’t wait to see every day. Someone who makes your life easier and happier just by being in it.
Wait for the person who makes you miss them every moment you spend apart, and has you counting down the minutes until you’ll be back together.
Date someone who calls you every night before they fall asleep, and texts you every morning when they wake up. Not because they have to, but because they want to.
Wait for the person who asks about your day because they genuinely care about it. Wait for the person who would rather stay awake all night than see you go to bed without a smile on your face.
Please, whatever you do, wait for the person who always makes you smile, even when it seems impossible. It may seem like this person is hard to find, but they are infinitely worth waiting for.
