Don’t Pretend That You Don’t Want Love


Don’t pretend that you don’t want someone to talk to when you’re lonely. Don’t pretend that you don’t have some nights when all you want is someone to just listen, someone to be there, someone to understand and someone to hold you as you try to sleep — someone to help you sleep when your head is spinning.

Don’t pretend that you don’t want good morning and good night texts. Don’t act like you don’t want to know that you’re one someone’s mind every morning and every night, that someone cares about your day, your school, your work, your health, your family, your life and someone who truly cares about you.

Don’t pretend that you don’t want security. Don’t pretend that you’re satisfied with multiple lovers or meaningless flings or tinder dates. Don’t pretend like you don’t want a real connection; someone to understand you when you’re quiet, someone to support you when you’re stressed out, someone to ease your pain when you’re down and someone to help you fight your battles. One person who will always be there for you, one person who will not walk away from you and one person who will love you and keep loving you because they’re committed to you.

Don’t pretend that you don’t want happiness. The happiness that only comes with love, the happiness that only comes when two souls truly connect with each other, when two hearts beat for each other, when everything you wished for is standing right in front of you in the form of another human being. Don’t pretend you don’t want someone who will make you smile no matter how horrible your day was.

Don’t pretend that you don’t want love because you’re guarded or you’ve been hurt before. You just want a person who fights hard enough for you so you can make sure they will not burn you like the previous ones did.

Don’t use your work or your studies or your busy lifestyle as an excuse not to be with someone. You just want the reassurance that someone else will not get in the way of the plans you have for yourself and the dreams you want to follow.

Don’t say that your flaws make you hard to love. You just want the person who will love you with all your flaws, the person who won’t try to change you, the person who will not run away when they’re exposed to the darkest sides of you.

Don’t believe that you’ll never find love because you’ve been single for almost all your life. You’re just looking for the person who will be worth the wait, the person who will love you even when you’re inexperienced or you don’t know what love is and the person who will not make you feel like there’s anything wrong with because you’ve never found love.

Don’t pretend that you don’t want love when it’s all you need. Don’t pretend that you know what love is when all you ever experienced was pain and heartbreak.

Don’t pretend that you’re happy with being alone because you gave up on the idea that someone out there will make your life better.

Don’t pretend that your dreams will make it hard for you to be with anyone when you’ve never tried to be with someone who will support every little aspect of your dreams.

Don’t say that love is hard when you haven’t met someone who makes your life easier. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
