I remember that hug where he wraps his arms around you tightly as you nestle in his chest. The way his thick jacket touches your body. The way he gazes at you, different from anyone else. The way his eyes are glued to your face. The way he brushes the hair out of your eyes to get a better look. And, the way he kisses you. It’s just a special feeling. You feel protected. You feel wanted. You feel needed. You feel loved.
As I walked passed by a couple today, embracing, and the way he looked at her got me. I miss that. I know that I have so many other things on my plate right now and that’s the last thought I should be worried about, but it would be nice to have a significant other. Plus, the Christmas holiday is coming up and spending it with another makes it all the better.
I know what you’re going to say. “Embrace being single because one day when you have a family, you may look back and regret rushing this process.” Honestly, who the hell cares. I’m not thinking about that right now.
Yes, I understand your motherly advice to not wish for it or think about it, but how could I not? I should just wait for it to happen. All of my friends have boyfriends and I don’t. Not that it’s a bad thing. All I’m saying is I miss THOSE moments with them.
The looks. The touches. The love. All of that crap that comes along with a relationship. I LOVE that stuff. You should know that by now. If you’ve been reading my stuff, you will say “duh.”
I’ve written how many relationship columns? If you haven’t read any of my stuff, take a peek, they are all posted to my Facebook.
What about YOU? What do you think about relationships? Think they are a fantasy and are overemphasized? Tell me what you think.
