You don’t need someone.
You are your own person.
You have your own thoughts and opinions.
You have your own goals.
You have your own life.
Your own dreams.
You want someone.
Love is everywhere, it isn’t just in a partner. Love is there with your friends and with your family. Love is there when you take a fresh breath, when you feel the ocean breeze, when you watch the sunrise.
Love is there when you watch the clouds go by, when you see the stars twinkle in the night sky, when water falls from the sky, when dew forms on a fresh blade of grass, when your heart races on an adventure into the unknown, when you take a small sip of piping hot coffee, when you soak in the sunshine.
You don’t need someone, you want someone.
Not just anyone.
You want a partner to share your life with.
Someone who recognises how special you are, how incredible you are, how beautiful you are, how strong you are, how intelligent you are and how loving you are.
Someone who looks into your eyes and sees your magic, your heart and your soul.
Someone who wants to grow with you, learn with you and do life with you.
