I just started dating someone, and the other day, he confessed to me that he's a "sappy romantic."
I have never
wanted a sappy romantic. I am a self-professed hopeless unromantic, and
emotion of any kind makes me uncomfortable. But ever since he said that, I've been creeping closer and closer to an eye-opening personal revelation:
I always assumed that
since I'm not mushy, I should look for someone equally unmushy. But
maybe that's a cop-out, you know? In my quest for challenge, I've actually been tackling things that are completely within my comfort zone.
See, usually stretching oneself involves
being brazen and dauntless. But for me, maybe it's more of a challenge
to be, well, "romantic." Maybe THAT will be the audacious adventure I look for in a relationship.
This guys makes me see a lot of things differently. I love it.
