She’s so… spunky, he’s saying. Obviously they’re talking about you.
I’ve always wanted to be with a woman like that. Driven. Independent. Confident. Sexy. She walks into a room and turns heads. She’s the hottest woman and the coolest friend rolled into one. You know what I mean?
You’re inching closer. You don’t want him to know you’re eavesdropping. She’s the kind of woman that makes you always want to hold on to, he says. You smile. You believe him.
Well, almost. You know he loves you, but always? You’ve never liked the idea of always. You know either of you can’t be absolutely loyal. It’s not in you. Both of you like being loved too much for your own good.
Also, he likes to be needed. All men do. You don’t know how long it’ll be before he realizes that you’re too driven. Too independent. Soon he will see that you can find your way around the world even without him; you don’t need a man to give you safety or money or happiness.
You know his reverence will eventually turn into resentment and that’s why the whole concept of always is so fucking flawed.

I don’t know anyone that doesn’t have a flaw that gets in the way of a relationship. It really does take lots of work. It becomes (for me) a matter of energy. Do I have enough energy to work at it?
You have a point. We’re both old and tired and I don’t know how long we can keep at it!
Yikes, them’s a lot of compliments – I’m still trying got figure out where and how you found the compliant.
He never complains, Paul. I have it good, which is probably why I get insecure.
To be honest if this relationship doesn’t work for me, I don’t know what will.
Maybe you’re perfect? Bwahaha!

Try telling my parents that 😉
Agree with ur thoughts. I believe in accepting someone the way she is while many men resent that. The women, spunky and feisty, should not cease being herself.

Always and Love together is a big fucking HOAX !
I don’t know if hoax is the right word. I’d call it delusion.
Cannot deny the fact which you wrote, but then you need to understand that every relationship has this term understanding which can help it to work for long, not always but certainly up to always 🙂
Well, there’s some truth in what you said. Relationships are hard work!
