For a long time I’ve been single.
I still am.
But I want it to change, I really do.
I want to see her every single day and still get nervous.
I want to take long walks at night with her, in the summer and in the winter.
I want to hold her hand and not say a word.
I want to spend hours talking about nothing.
I want to go and watch a movie, quietly holding hands as things blow up or as the girl gets the guy.
I want to cuddle up next to a fire with her.
I want to just sit in her presence.
I want to treat her to home cooked meals.
I want to look at her and see her blush.
I want to spend a lifetime with her.
Her good looks are a bonus.
People are always telling me that it’s all about the sex.
Will the sex be good?
But I’m not going to be having sex 24 hours a day, seven days a week am I?
I want to be able to live a life with her.
I want to go on bike rides.
I want to be able to play laser tag or paintball.
I want to have nerf gun wars.
I want to read books together as she leans against me.
I want to laugh at television shows.
I want to grin for no reason.
I want to hold her when she cries.
I want to come up behind her, wrap my arms around her waist and whisper in her ear.
I want to hold her face and kiss her.
I want to know her family.
I want to meet her friends.
I want to giggle like teenagers at something silly.
You see that is what I want.
People have told me that single life is the best!
Well, it’s been nice…but I’m tired of being single!
I’m ready to find that girl and fall helplessly in love.
I’m ready to see her wake up every day.
I’m ready to see her annoyed with how she looks first thing in the morning until I tell her she’s still beautiful.
I’m ready to see her happy, upset, frustrated, overjoyed, annoyed, excited, crying, laughing, and loving.
I want to have that person who is always willing to talk.
I want that person who is always excited to see me.
I want to know that I’m always on her mind.
I want to know that she’s always counting down to the next time we’ll see each other again.
I want to have a real connection with her.
One that is true.
One that is deep.
One that means the world to her and to me.
