I just crave something different. Maybe someone who challenges me in more ways than one. These days people are all too willing to say whatever they think you want to hear in an effort to hook up with you, but I never found that attractive in the first place. I don’t want someone who agrees with everything I have to say and who caters to my every whim and fancy. That holds no interest for me. I think the whole point of being with someone who you’re into in more than just a superficial sense is that they force you to question your beliefs and your lifestyle, and they change you for the better and make you see things you may not have been willing to see before. They balance you out, and they complement you. And it’s not like you’re two halves of a whole. I never liked that idea, you shouldn’t have to give up parts of yourself to fit better with another person. It’s perfectly okay to be two independent people who, when together, make each other stronger and more capable of taking on the world with the other person by their side. Maybe the possibility of all that is worth enough to risk putting yourself and your heart out there.
