I deserve a partner who thinks I hung the moon

via Daily Prompt: Timely

I found this little story today as I was thinking about what to write. I had saved it after a breakup a few years ago and it is still timely to this day. I’m not sure who wrote it so I have not given the author proper credit. I don’t have huge lists or unrealistic expectations when it comes to love except – love me, support me through good and bad and just be present. Enjoy.

I deserve a partner who thinks I hung the moon.

I deserve to be with someone who wants to hold my hand as often as possible.

I deserve a partner who will be in awe of my ass in a pencil skirt, who will tell me I am beautiful even when on days I don’t feel like I am.

I deserve to be with someone who is proud to show me off.

I deserve a partner who will celebrate my successes with me, and allow me to celebrate his successes with him.

I deserve to be with someone who can totally respect my politics, my views on religion even if we don’t share the same views.

I deserve to be with someone who, even in the biggest king bed you’ve ever seen, will want to at least have our feet touching.

I deserve a partner who can communicate, like really communicate.

I deserve to be with someone who will take care of me when I am sick or sad or tired.

I deserve a partner who wants to go on adventures with me, wide-eyed.

I deserve to be someone’s #1 teammate.

I deserve a partner who is present, emotionally and physically, more often than not.

I deserve a partner who understands the emotional exhaustion my career can sometimes cause.  And at the very least I deserve a partner who wants to hear about my day.

I deserve to be with someone who truly wants to come home to me (every single week/weekend/night, etc) that he can.  I deserve to be his favorite.

I deserve a partner who will sneak in quietly if I am napping and put a blanket over me.

I deserve a partner who will leave me a little note with a heart on it for no reason at all. Small gestures mean more to me than large ones.

I deserve a partner who loves me without pretense or doubt.

I deserve a partner that will encourage me to be my best and support me when I am at my worst.

My future partner doesn’t have to be a doctor or a lawyer or a fighter pilot. He doesn’t have to be superman or the President of the United States. He doesn’t have to be 6 foot 2 or a stand-up comedian. He doesn’t need a fancy car or a big salary or to be a certain age.  I don’t have a checklist. He just needs to love me more than anyone ever has—he needs to love me to the stars and back.  And he needs to be worthy of my love, because I have so very much to give.  I may not be sure who the man is, but I know what the love is.

This is what I have learned.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

    This is lovely. I don’t think these are very high expectations. I guess deep down, this is what everyone wants. I hope you settle with such a man!
