In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the 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?”
Reluctantly, 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 household without the help of any man…or 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, “I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for perfection in every aspect of life.”
He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, and asked her to explain.
She said, “I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection mentally because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple-minded man. I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection 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 perfection financially because I don’t need a financial burden. I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded. I am looking for someone who 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…he just has to be worthy. God made woman to be a helpmate for man. I can’t help a man if he can’t help himself.”
When she finished her spill, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said, “You’re asking a lot.”
I rarely have dreams I can remember…but this one was so real. So interesting. So scary.
As we all know Luis and I are in a LDR. And I miss him more than anything in the freaking world. But in this dream…it was like we were going to finally be together .
We were going to meet up.
But everytime we planned it…or we were SO close to seeing one another…something bad happened…and prevented us. Like he calls me…and I was supposed to get on the train to meet him at the train stop in Jersey…but it was like the train wouldn’t let me get on. It was gated…like the ones in New York…and I would swipe my card…but it wouldn’t accept it. Or one point…I was going to swipe my card…and it flew away because it was windy. Then we planned on seeing each other at the airport…and it was like I got on the plane…and I was going to Jersey…and he was waiting for me…and the plane didn’t work. I never got to see him.
And it was like the whole time I would be talking to Luis…and he would be like “c’mon babe…I’m waiting for you…why do you keep putting me off…why can’t we just be together…I just want to see you for 5 minutes”….
I don’t know what this dream means. I believe in my dreams…and everytime I dream something…it occurs. It’s weird as heck.
But I’m afraid this means…perhaps we might not ever GET to be together :(
And that scares me. I know I shouldn’t over analyze…but anything that has to do with him..I freak out. :(
I hope it’s not true…and we will finally get to be together one day. I miss him a lot. :(
I’m officially 20. AS much as I was HATING for this day to come…it came…and I’m old. Well ok, not that old…but still :)
I had an amazing birthday…my boyfriend got to be apart of it…my beautiful mother, grand-ma…and crazy brother.
:) 20 years…and I’m still growing. Have tons more to learn. Tons more to experience. Life is getting more serious now. But from time to time…I can be just me and be a kid and remember old times. The future scares me…but makes me excited.
It makes me happy to know I’ll be graduating college soon…being with the love of my life soon…and finally HOPEFULLY being happy to my fullest potentiol.
I normally don’t recieve presents…but by far the gratest present in my life was my amazing family…especially my mom. She’s been there for me 24.7. My bads and my goods.
Looking forward to the future…and like my baby always says “be ready for it baby…because we are coming for it”
