Every girl, no matter her race, size, or education, wants to be loved.
It’s just the way it is. Like how all of us are made out of stars and meteors, or the unchangeable fact that the Earth rotates itself once a day — it’s a fact. None of the constellations are going to disintegrate and vanish, and the universal dream deep within every girl’s heart, too, isn’t going to change anytime soon.
It’s just this desire to be touched, seen, felt in a different way — a person who will go to any extent just to do that one insignificant thing that could possibly change everything between the both of you. Imagine the spark of lust, longing, and love in someone’s eyes. The glow of pure and genuine happiness that couldn’t be destroyed no matter what happens. The strong, directed love in his eyes that overpowers the strongest emotions you’ve ever tasted.
Now imagine that all of this magic in his eyes is for you and wholly you.
It’s a little overwhelming and enchanted, isn’t it? This one person who is truly dedicated to stand by you, to provide a sanctuary of comfort, and to look at you like you are the most beautiful person he’s ever met.
So, to the anti-love-believers out there: Dreaming of being in love one day isn’t silly; it isn’t another unachievable fantasy that people have yet to discover. It’s present. It’s alive. Falling in love isn’t like chemistry; it doesn’t require a specific amount of time in order for a chemical reaction to take place. Some people take years and years only to find that the one is right beside them, and some lucky ones take less than a fraction of a second to come to the same realization.
