I’ve been in a lot of relationships over the past 3 years and dated a few people who never quite turned into relationships. Most of these people have broken up with me and some I have even stayed really good friends with (contrary to popular belief not all breakups are bad. Sometimes it really is for the best). A lot of times I hear the same thing when I get dumped or someone wants to be “just friends”.
I can’t give you what you’re looking for.
You deserve better.
I think we want different things.
I can’t make you as happy as you should be.
I think this is what’s best for you.
After hearing these things so many times you can’t help but really stop and think — “What DO I want?
And that’s exactly where I am right now.
So I was talking with people the other day. And I made a list. It might seem like a lot, but it’s small things, personality more than anything. I don’t expect someone to fit into the mold for all of these things. But rather, it’s a general idea of what I am looking for. Here’s my basic list:
- I want a best friend that ends up being my boyfriend.I need someone I can feel very very comfortable around. Where I can just completely let my guard down at all times. There’s no need to worry or be nervous or to ever feel like I have anything to hide. They’ll love and accept every part of me — good and bad.
