And Not Even the Mush Mushy Kind ....
I am not a huge fan of love , but sometimes I do crave touch, a hug, affection from the opposite sex.
I am a firm believer that actions speak much louder than words - I always have, and I always will.
I don't need diamonds, candy, toys, presents, I need nothing that money can buy.
But - I do need reassurance sometimes that my feelings are validated, and are not being given to someone who does not appreciate them, or me.
I am NOT a needy person - I am VERY low maintenance, and I treat my partners the way that I want to be treated.
OK - I can't really right the words that I wanted to - because that is a lie, and I won't lie about it.
Sometimes I have not treated my partners the best - and they have not treated me the best.
But from this point on, I do, and I will - treat any potential partner with the respect, undertanding, caring and compassion equal to what they give me. If you want more - you have to ask for more, and I have made that decision to not ask for more - than love.
It doesn't have to be all encompassing, all empowering, breath-taking, heart stopping, toe curling love. BUT - to get that from me - I expect the same - nothing less.
A simple text, an email, a phone call.... it's the small actions that speak volumes, even when you think you can't.
I know what I need ... and yes, maybe it is an insecurity right now, but I know what I need.
And I'm not going to run from it.
