Guess who finally quit the single’s club? ? Passing on the baton to the next in line and hello taken fraternity?.
Breathe! Well I really can’t even if I try. We have quit the singles’ club for good, me, myself and I are taken?. It feels unreal, please wake me up this seems like a dream??. My people know I swore to remain single, get old with 70 multi colored beady-eyed cats to call my own but fate the ever-present fate had other plans for me.?
He’s tall with an aura that is engulfing?, he literally swallows everyone in a room. His eyes are like a vast ocean of wonders, intriguing and mysterious. His laugh vibrates across the hallway and sends shivers down my spine?. His touch is warm and comforting, a well of peace and solace. His name tastes like freshly plucked grapes, I call him for keeps.?
It’s interesting how we met, I laugh each time I remember the incident.? I hate crowds, they accelerate my anxiety and trigger so much in a short time. I was running away from people, taking long routes to stay away from them. My routes are deserted and I use that to my advantage, earphones on and I dance? like the cliché I am. He saw me, he laughed, I was shocked and I sprinted away dying in embarrassment.?
I did not even register his face when I ran past him all the way to my room. Breathless, embarrassed and blushing, I got into bed and laughed?? till my sides hurt. How dumb can I get? I forgot the incident and life moved on but I avoided that route like a plague until circumstances drove me there and I’m so glad they did because that’s where my story began…?
This time I kept my wild antics to myself and tried to be normal but my brain was twitching I had a new blog developing and I had to write it down. The ideas in my head drive me insane if I don’t pen them down in time.? I was busy typing; the path was deserted and chances of bumping into any one was low but I hit a solid brick wall and landed on my well-rounded bum. Someone was helping me up, ‘The path is right in front of you, keep walking straight I’m sure you won’t hit another wall’
Embarrassed, angry, flustered and feeling so many emotions at once?, I was a mess. I was scrutinized thoroughly until I felt self-conscious, then he laughed and the memories of that dancing catastrophe came back. IT WAS HIM!!! Please earth swallow? me now. He apologized for his behavior but I was on the verge of tears?, he offered to get me anything to ease the discomfort. I walked away and the stubborn humanoid followed me, I gave in so easily that I mentally face-palmed myself. Over hot chocolate we became casual friends, a series of meet ups followed and something changed along the way.?
The conversations were enlightening, deep and made no sense. We had a canvas and it was vividly captured in an array of colors. We painted and doodled and wrote poems on it. We had zinged! There were places we got curious stares because we’d laugh so loud until I snorted. He brings out the best in me and I take him to the wilderness of my head?. I never knew it would feel this good falling this hard.?
I hope we last till we are old and toothless
Laughing at things we only understand
Holding hands as we watch the sun set
Breathing in the wet soil
Counting the stars till we fall asleep
Living the novel kind of love
Arguing and later falling back in love
It’s been a long time coming and finally I’ve met my match?.
To be honest that’s one of my fantasies, my greatest prayer and constant wish but it’s not being fulfilled any time soon. I’m not being a pessimist but in today’s society it’s a bit hard to find ‘the right one ‘.?
Relationships in the 21st century feel rushed but everyone has their choice drug and they revel in its ‘highness’. I envied couples especially those who had a mutual level of understanding and trust, basic and key things lacking in most relationships especially in my generation. I’ve never understood how easily people jump from one relationship to another without much effort. The idea of starting from scratch is quite tasking for me and I’d rather not risk meeting another Destroyer.?
I don’t have a guide for Dating 101 or Relationships Central but honestly, we are messed up, relationships are so casual and are based on sexual intimacy rather than love, faith, trust and friendship. The idea of being single is scary to some and they’d prefer hooking up with just about anyone to evade this single title. Then there are the singles’ club ruining relationships just because they can, what a shame! Not all apples are rotten, there is hope for this dying relationship.?
Couples who are goals, building each other and being faithful.? The idea that the male species were not made to be monogamous is far-fetched and ticks my bombs off. The female species has evolved too, juggling men like they are the main attraction in a circus. I’m encouraged when there’s a couple sticking together in thee highs and lows, I’m reminded there’s hope.?
If you found someone, keep them disagree to agree. Meet each other in the middle ,keep your promises and work out your mess together. Fight and build each other, respect and do all that is right for each other. There are so many broken people right now, quit adding more statics.
