Recently, I’ve been thinking about the idea of being “wanted” by the person you are with.
One of my good friends is dating someone that I know with certainty does not “want” her. In fact, he’s repeatedly cheated on her… but I guess she “wants” him so she’s willing to stay next to someone that doesn’t give her an inch. She wants him more than her dignity, but he wants all of the other girls plus her.
I’ve been seeing someone for the last couple months, and I’ve been thinking a lot about him too… I wonder if he “wants” me the way that I want to be wanted. I want someone who actively chooses and wants to be with me above all else. I want someone who wants all of the good and the bad. I want that.
I don’t think that love is enough to be married, but that each person has to “want” to be married and to be in love with each other.
I’m still not sure on this “want” thing… but these are the things kicking around in my head.
