I'm not going to lie, I will be very picky about the next man I am with. Because I want him to be the rest of my life. No more of this "let's just date and see where it goes." The next man that I hope to fall in love with is going to be the man that sweeps me off my feet. He's going to be the man that I want to spend forever with. He's going to be the one that I grow old with. The one I get married to and start a family with.
Yes I am willing to wait around for my Prince Charming. Why settle in life when it is your life that you get to choose. I'm not going to lower my standards for anyone just because I miss being in a relationship. I've learned my lesson in that department and I am so over casual dating. I want to meet someone who makes my heart race in excitement. Butterflies are real, and I want it to be everlasting butterflies every time I see him. I want someone who makes me smile and laugh. Someone who makes me feel happy and whole. I want him to be someone I can't go a day without thinking about.
I'm going to wait for the guy that has a sense of humour. The nice smile. The guy that will set a date and time and pick me up at my house. The guy that will take me on a surprise date that he's planned out. I want someone who will prove that chivalry is not dead. A man who will knock on my door flowers in hand to pick me up.
I don't want all of these things because I am a spoiled brat. I just want to know that he actually cares. I want someone who wants to spend every special moment with me. Somebody who wants me there. I'm willing to wait for the guy that meets me and falls madly in love with me. The guy that asks for my number and calls to make plans. The guy that wants to spend time with me.
What's the point in having a man that sits back and waits for you to make the move. I deserve someone who makes an effort to be with me. Don't get me wrong. Everyone has their flaws. But I want someone I'm so madly in love with. Someone that I know will stay through thick and thin. Someone that I can look past their flaws because I know they are so worth it.
I’m a tough cookie and because of who I am and what I know I have to offer the right guy, I won’t apologize for having high standards and wanting a man who is both mature and thoughtful in the way that he dates me. So to my whomever this may be in the future. I know we will meet one day and I'll be waiting...
