Although I enjoy my solitude every now and then, I admit that I wouldn’t say no to a lifelong partnership.
I looked for real love in more than one continent. I crossed oceans for people who were potential lovers and overstayed with them in places that could have been my forever home.
The things I have done for real love are incomprehensible. Have I found it though? No, I haven’t.
But I have found something much better.
I have found a real partner who’s genuine and supportive. He’s loving and kind. He’s a great husband and even a greater father. Our relationship is far from being perfect, but we sit with our imperfections and ugly feelings every single day and see how we can make things better.
When I was looking for real love, I always found myself stuck in toxic relationships with people who were not right for me. I attracted partners who were either emotionally unavailable or commitment phobics. For many years, I thought there was something wrong with me. Well, I’m not perfect, but I’m not that bad either.
