Just a little bit of romance, my love
This post is a hybrid of sorts. Partially inspired by Miss Stephanie from Pandora, and partially inspired by a seriese of books I'm currently rereading called the Canadian West series by Jannette Oke. I love her, not gonna lie.
When I read Stephanie's post The 90% Theory I imediately started racking my brain on what my take on "love" is. I agree with "Ellie" on the fact that 90% of the population could probably make a marriage work with 90% of the population. Like wise, I agree with Stephanie on the fact that I'm not willing to be in a relationship that I'm thinking "I could have made it work with a lot of other guys too and this marriage would have been just as good." . The idea actually makes me sick to my stomache.
I believe that you can love a lot of people in life. I have loved (and always will in some way) Micah, and I will love atleast one more man somewhere down the road. Here's the catch though, there is only one person in this world that you will love with everything you have, while they love you just the same. That love, will never, ever fade.
While reading this morning, I got lost in thought about romance. Now, as I've said before, I'm a hopeless romantic, but I fear I never made it clear what I call "romance". To me, it has nothing to do with anything sexual, and everything to do with pure, sweet love. When your walking on ice and you slip.. and his strong arms catch you, leaving you both in this intamate imbrace that makes your face flush and your heart flutter. That, my loves, is romance. It's what makes my breath catch and skin tingle. Don't get me wrong, the sexual stuff affects me too. I am human after all, but at this point, as a single woman, much less married, sexual things are my flesh reaching out. Romance, is my heart. I long to be wrapped up in the embrace of romance. *sigh*
