“My feet, I’m tired. Shouldn’t have wore this pair of heels today!”

“Come, I’ll give you a piggy back.”

That was how everything started.

I was 16. For the first time, my heart fluttered. I could feel blood rushing to my head, my face turned pink. There was a warm fuzzy feeling within me. What is this.

It was an unfamiliar feeling, and I’ve never felt anything this strong. And I’ve never felt this with him. He was all along just a friend. A nice guy, and a friend. But that day, at our school prom, it felt different. He felt different.

His smile looked nicer. The way he spoke, the way he asked if I was fine, the way he made sure to send me home safely. It was like I was completely in a trance, some kind of magic. How come I’ve never seen him this way?

And so, my feelings for him sparked. Day by day, it grew. Almost 8 years now, my heart still flutters when I hear someone speaking of him. And when I look at him, I just know. He is home.

Someone Who Is Worthy

In a brief conversation, a man asked a lady he was pursuing this question “What kind of man are you looking for?”

She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye and asking “Do you really want to know? Reluctant, he said yes.

She began to expound, “As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man what he can do for me that I can’t do for myself. I pay my own bills. I take care of my own household without the help of any man.. or any woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, what can you bring to the table.”

The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money. She quickly corrected his thought and stated that she wasn’t referring to money. “I need something more. I need a man who is striving for excellence in every aspect of life.”

He sat back in his chair, folded his arms and asked her to explain.

“I need someone who is striving for excellence mentally because I need conversation and a mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple minded man.

I need someone who is striving for excellence spiritually because I don’t need to be unequally yoked.. believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster.

I need a man who is striving for excellence financially because I don’t need a financial burden.

I need someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded.

I need someone who has integrity in dealing with relationships. Lies and game-playing are not my idea of a strong man.

I need a man who is family oriented. One who can be a leader, a priest and provider to the lives entrusted to him by God.

I need someone whom I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who isn’t taking care of his business. I have no problem being submissive, but he just needs to be worthy.

And by the way, I am not looking for him. He will find me. He will recognize himself in me. He may not be able to explain the connection, but he will always be drawn to me. God made women to be a help-mate for men. I can’t help a man if he doesn’t help himself.”

When she finished her spiel, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said “You’re asking for a lot.”

She replied, “I am worth a lot.”

“I wonder what it’s like to have to move on, but knowing that you’ll always want him over anyone else. Well, when you finally find him, when he makes you happier than anyone else, never let him slip away. Hold on with everything you’ve got, and fight till the very end. Because all your life, you will have him at the back of your mind. Sure you’ll love again, but will it be the same? Never. Because he was the one.”

Deal? Deal.

Deal? Deal.

Have you ever had this feeling when you just knew this person was the one for you? It’s not like you are deeply in love with him, or he is in you(yet), but you just feel like one day you’ll marry him?

This probably sounds crazy, but I have. I believe that all our past relationships will serve as lessons so that I will treat him right. When the time comes, we will get together, and treat each other right.

“Let’s make a pact. If we reach 30 years old, and we haven’t met anyone worth marrying, let’s get married.”


“Haha what? Let’s do that! Sounds pretty fun doesn’t it? You can back out, but I’m just saying, why not? We hang out together just fine, and maybe, just maybe we will work out!”

“Hmm well.”

“Hmmmm well? Deal?”

“Well, okay, deal.”

And that was how it all started.

He turned 30 last month. I will turn 30 in 2 months. We’ve known each other for 15 years now, we’ve never officially dated, but there was always this special feeling between us. I can’t wait to see how things will turn out then.

“Happy birthday, we’re now both 30 years old, and single. What now?”

“Our deal, is it still on?”

“Haha yes my dear, deal.”

Sophie’s World

Sophie’s World

Who are you?

Where does the world come from?”

“The only thing we require to be good philosophers is the faculty of wonder. Babies have this faculty. After a few short months in the womb, they slip out into a brand new reality. But as they grow up, this faculty of wonder seems to diminish.

If a new born baby could talk, it would probably say something about what an extraordinary world it had come into. We see how it looks around and reaches out in curiosity to everything it sees.

But long before the child learns to talk properly – and long before it learns to think philosophically – the world will have become a habit.

It seems as if in the process of growing up, we lose something central – something philosophers try to restore. For somewhere inside ourselves, something tells us that life is a huge mystery.

To children, the world and everything in it is new, something that gives rise to this astonishment. It is not like that for adults. Most adults accept the world as a matter of course. The world itself becomes a habit in no time at all.

A philosopher never gets quite used to the world. To him or her, the world continues to seem a bit unreasonable – bewildering, even enigmatic.

So now you must choose. Are you a child who has not yet become world-weary? Or are you a philosopher who will vow to never become so? If you just shake your head, not recognizing yourself as either, then you have gotten to used to the world that it no longer astonishes you. You are on thin ice.”



“The last time we spoke, we had a sickening pause before saying goodnight. It was the space we were used to saying “I love you” in. And truthfully, I don’t believe it was simply muscle memory.

You called me a few nights later and I didn’t pick up.

I wrote you an email. You didn’t respond.

We’re both just trying to say something, but never know how we should start.
Maybe this is me, with trembling fingers and voice much softer than usual. Maybe this is me, just trying to start.”

One Day

One Day

“I hope you fall in love with someone who always texts back, and never lets you fall asleep thinking you’re unwanted.

I hope you fall in love with someone who holds your hand during the scary parts of horror movies, and burns cookies with you when you’re too busy dancing around the kitchen.

I hope you fall in love with someone who sees galaxies in your eyes, and heard music in your heartbeats.

I hope you fall in love with someone who tickles you, and makes you smile on hard days and on easy ones.

But beyond all that, I hope you fall in love with someone who will never leave you behind, and take you for granted.

Someone who will stand by you when you’re right, and stand by you when you’re wrong.

Someone who has seen you at your worst and has loved you still.

I hope you fall in love with someone who kisses you in the rain, and hugs you in the cold, and wouldn’t have you any other way.”

How Sex Isn’t The Only Form Of Infidelity

How Sex Isn’t The Only Form Of Infidelity

“You need to take a minute to tell her she’s beautiful. Call her after work to say, “Get dressed in 30 minutes. I’m picking you up and taking you somewhere special.”
Make an effort. Old-fashioned love needs to make another round.

The days of holding hands, opening the car door, taking her out “just because,” sending her flowers just to get a smile and leaving her notes on her car should never be gone.

We have to be children when it comes to love.

We have to be vulnerable and free. That can’t happen when we’re preoccupied with the details of everyone else’s lives.

Focus on each other. When it’s all said and done, that’s all you really have.

Appreciate her, and show her how much she means to you. But, most importantly, put your phone down, and dial into what’s in front of you.”
