I Don’t Want A Lover, I Want A Best Friend

It audios beautiful, doesnt it? Procuring a fan. A person to kiss. A person to go on dates with. A person whose hand you squeeze during scary movies. A person to open your life to, give your heart to, who you can see yourself with, years and years down the road.

But receiving that person is scary.

Theres so many rules and restrictions in todays dating world. A lover is supposed to be attractive and sexy and entice and reliable and romantic and everything weve ever dreamed of, right? He/ shes supposed to be this perfect person. But perfection in love? Thats not real. And receiving a flawless, completes-me type of person? Impossible.( Thank goodness, because none of us would make the cut .)

Thats why I dont want something perfect. And why I dont want a fan. I want a best friend.

I want someone I can be completely myself around. I want to wake up in the morning, hair all sleepy and messy around my face, makeup off, baggy t-shirt on, and not feel like I have to be anything Im not.

I want somebody to giggle with. To stay up late with and talking here dreamings. To go on escapades with, big or small. To sip wine and make breakfast together, and feel like we are aware every little thing about each other’s lives.

I want someone I can talk to openly, fearlessly, about my biggest sadness and future plans. Someone who I can trust. Someone who will be there for me , no matter what, and I’ll return the favor. Someone I can chow down on family size Chex Mix with, someone I can simply sit on the couch with and not say anything, but simply enjoy one another company.

See, I guess the world has it all incorrect. Love isnt about receiving the perfect person, about receiving a fan. I guess love is all about receiving your best friend. Someone who youre compatible with on so many levels , not only romantically .

I want a best friend. Someone I can taunt, go out drinking with, or stay in and binge-watch Prison Break with. Someone who will give me a genuine compliment when I look my best, but will candidly tell me when I look like sh* t and need to get my butt off the couch.

I want someone who knows all my inner secrets, drama, and proudest moments. Who will go places with me, or take me to dinner and actually talking here things that are important. Who wont always have to be in charge, get paid, have to be the one to scheme things. But will still do those things sometimes, simply because.

I want someone who will make me laugh, drive me nuts, piss me off, but still be my best friend.

And I want to fall head over heels for this best friend.

See, I guess the world has it all incorrect. Love isnt about receiving the perfect person, about receiving a fan. I guess love is all about receiving your best friend. Someone who youre compatible with on so many levels , not only romantically.( Because that mushy-gushy, intimate stuff will come naturally. Dont fret .)

I want a best friendsomeone I love, yes, but more importantly, someone I can truly. And someone who knows me, inside and out, flaws and oddities and all my weirdness, yet still chooses to be mine.
