I’ve thought a lot over the years of what my perfect romance would be. I’ve had the instant sparks ~ but once the sparks died, so did the romance. I’ve had the teenage arch-nemesis turned puppy love kind of romance. That didn’t last either. As I’ve gotten older, what I want is a friend. Someone who knows me, I mean really knows me and can love me because of it or even in spite of it.
I want someone I’ve known for years, someone I’m comfortable with, and someone I just look at one day and something’s different. I want to be taken be surprise. I want it to sneak up on me. And I want it forever.
I want someone to laugh with, someone I can just sit with and enjoy the quiet, someone who I can just “be” with. Someone I’ve joked with, talked to, laughed with for years and then one day I just look into his eyes and there’s just something different. Something more.
Someone I can share a deep, abiding, forever kind of something. Let’s face it. When it comes to romance we’ve all gotten the butterflies. The period of infatuation where your skin tingles with awareness and your stomach seems to flutter at a million beats a minute. And your heart stops. But after that period is over, I feel, is where the deeper loves comes. That’s when I know somebody. When I can connect without having to say a word. A love that can still make my heart stop after years of looking at him. Someone I can just look at and I’m home. That’s the love I want. That’s the love that can last a lifetime.
So tell me, what is your perfect romance? What is the fantasy you dream of?
