The Very Best

When I take that leap of faith
I want to dive into a shimmering sea
Not some puddle that just came up

When I play this infernal game
I'll be all in with royal flush
Not waste my time on checkers with missing pieces

When I run this marathon
I won't stop at mile seventeen
I'll drive it all the way home and then some

When I find the right girl, you'll know
Cause I'll question it a million times
Don't want her just cause she's in front of me

My brothers have all followed a pattern
And I'm the next in line
I gotta do this right and not jump ahead
Even though it'll take time

I don't wanna scrape by, I wanna be blessed
Want a heart to pound like a sledgehammer, the whole shabang!
Please, don't think me snobby that I want the very best



NOTE: I'm the youngest of four siblings, and each one of them have always married the first person they were ever in a relationship with. Sometimes it worked out, sometimes it didn't it. I know they just care about me, but I'm tired of the badgering of them pushing me into a relationship as soon as possible. My point is I don't wanna just be infatuated, I want the real deal... and if it takes ages so be it.

    So true! Ok, seriously? What are you going in my head and reading my thoughts? :P lol! I want to marry one day my best friend. But I want to take the time to get to know everything about them. After all, if a thing is rushed it's no longer so beautiful as it once was...

    We seem to be clones or something *looks around suspiciously*... lol! Rushing isn't pretty... taking it slow and enjoying that ride. That's what it's all about :)

    Yeah, Timothy...no need to rush into anything, and Eileen is right. Marriage is work, but its work you should enjoy....most of the time...haha. I've been married for 11 years and our marriage is better now than it ever has been. My advice?...if you find a woman who loves you...the real you...give her your love...and I mean all of it. As men, one of our root desires is respect...just as women's is love. You must give each other both...unconditionaly

    Love and respect, my friend....no marriage works without the two together.

    Oh Timothy. Don't believe the dream. There is nothing ideal! If there were, marriage counselors would be out of work! It takes commitment and sacrifice! I've known hubby since we were 12. Sometimes I want to kill him and sometimes he takes my breath away...still, after all these years! Can't imagine life without him....But a bed of roses...it isn't. It never will be, my dear. Marry for love...stay in for love...be prepared to be vulnerable..to get hurt...but also, to be blessed! :) Hugs

    Sorry..had to do a DR PHIL here...and by the way....Read the following: Making Love Last Forever, Sex Begins in the Kitchen, and 5 Love Languages. Great books...Oh..yea...He wins..She wins, another good one! ;) It helps to go in prepared. BTW...the 5 Love Languages...TRUE!!! Mine are words of affirmation and....wait for it...TOUCH! No kidding! You can do an online test. Ok...I'm blabbering. Take care!

    Thanks for the encouragement, Eileen. Perhaps I didn't word it perfectly... what I meant was the person who is the very best FOR ME. I know she won't be perfect, but I don't think jumping head first into the first girl you meet is a good idea either. The purpose of dating is too find someone you like. Going for the very first available option, doesn't seem wise.

    You'll know when it happens Tim. Just remember nobody is perfect. Take care, Richard

    Good advice... thanks for being a fan, Richard. I sometimes wonder if it's bad to not be in such a rush.
