Things I Miss About Having A Girlfriend...
It did get me thinking about a great many things regarding women and my relationships with them. Funnily enough, it wasn't anything bad, just stuff I miss. Granted, I haven't had many girlfriends and the ones I did have were wildly different, but they all had certain key qualities that resonated with me. I miss those qualities, which brings us to the point of this post.
For some bizarre reason, it's considered unmanly to admit to actually liking women. I have no idea why since the point of heterosexual males is to get women. I've never really understood that, but whatever. Here I am, acting all unmanly and saying that I miss having a girlfriend. Don't get me wrong the day-to-day realities of a relationship are difficult at times, but there are certain things that I liked having while I was with a girl.
For example, I miss:
-- the way kissing her erased all the problems in the world and reminded me that the two of us were the only things that mattered.
-- the joy I felt in knowing she cared enough to worry about my happiness.
-- the scent of her in my bed reminding me of her while she was away.
-- the coolness she would try to display when she was worried about my opinion on something important to her.
-- the rush I got every time I did something to make her happy.
-- the look on her face when I tell her I love her.
-- the way she whispered my name in the night.
-- the thrill I got when I came home and she was there.
-- the unconscious gestures of possession she made when other women paid undue attention to me.
-- the hidden signs of approval I got from other guys when they saw me with her.
-- the warmth of her in my arms.
Please remember, these things are not tied to any one particular girlfriend, but to all of them. They are the small items that when they connect in my head, and my heart, tell me that I'm in a real, solid relationship. Tell me, my dear readers, what are the things that make a relationship real for you?
