I can't write you down

I was talking with a friend who is stuck in a sticky situation with a past love of hers. We laid in our backyard eating dinner with our hands and just talking about boys... Girls do this OH SO WELL.

When it comes to who we are going to love or let go, it is a life-changing and sometimes the most heartbreaking moment one will ever experience. It always helps to try and sort things out when we compare what we had with another person and why this ONE single person can have such an impact on our hearts.

I was 15 when I started my list of qualities that I wanted in the person I married. Of course the list was the "perfect boy." I added and subtracted as I got older and dated more and more. Let me make this clear, by stating more and more, I mean I dated a lot. All different boys, and mostly for very short periods of time. I learned from each one and sometimes I felt like that boy was quite perfect.

I met Drew two years ago, and I can't say he is everything on my list. He is better. I can honestly say he has qualities I never could have imagined to put on that list (the good qualities). He isn't that "perfect boy" but he is perfect for me.

I'm not sure if there really is one person created for everyone, but I do know that for some reason I am in love with a boy that I couldn't make into list.
