I recently realized something about myself. Like every other 19 year old girl, I obviously find the “perfect” men that are famous actors and singers etc to be, well, perfect. Would I want to date them? Absolutely not. I’m not bad looking, but they intimidate me. They are too perfect, and I would feel like I would have to live up to those standards constantly.
To my realization: I noticed that lately, I’ve been liking guys that to the average person, are not perfect looking. They have flaws and that’s what I love about them. I love that my best friend wouldn’t look at him and say “Oh my gosh he’s so hot.” I love that his personality is what makes him amazing. Then I feel like he’s special, just for me.
There was a guy that I’d liked on and off for years and years. Well, I recently spent time with him and noticed that I’m not as attracted to him as I used to be. And this guy is perfect. All my friends think he’s so cute. He’s got the perfect body, good hair, dimples, go-getter personality etc. I’m just not that attracted to him anymore. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that although he is a nice guy, he’s been playing me for almost all the years I’ve known him. The charming things he said to me, he said them to 15 other girls. And now, his looks aren’t cutting it, I want more.
You know what it is, I’m growing up. FINALLY, I’m growing up. I’m realizing what’s important in life. I’m also patting myself on the back right now. I’m not currently seeing anyone either, but I feel like I just made my search for my husband a lot more narrowed down 🙂 Amen.
