No more fairytales

I'm done believing in soulmates or in that concept of the almighty love. The one that makes us want to spend every waken moment with that other person. The one that thinks everything is perfect. The one that thinks you are perfect in every way. The one that blinds us.

Don't get me wrong, I still believe in love. I just don't believe I will ever find someone that loves me the way I described it above. Maybe that's ok though. I want someone that sees my faults and helps me improve on them. I want someone that despite being attracted to someone else doesn't act on it, because he would know that in doing so he could lose one of the best things that ever happened to him. Because he would know that in doing so he would hurt me and break me beyond repair. I want a friend who can talk to me about everything, from how boring his day was to what the future might hold if aliens come to Earth.

I want someone that holds my hand when we are walking on a slippery shore. I want someone that hugs me when I say I had a bad day. I want someone that hugs me for no reason. I want someone that kisses me because I said something funny. I want someone that kisses me just because. I want someone that wants to start a family with me but that would consider our relationship as a couple above the children, because children leave and then we would only have each other. I want someone that values me as a companion, a friend and a lover.

I guess I don't deserve any of that.
