Why a girlfriend needs a boyfriend
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend who will always have time to give her hugs and forehead kisses. Who can fix her favorite things. Who teaches her, she is important by stopping what he is doing just to watch her. Who will laugh at her and with her at all the right moments. Who does not mind when she steps on his shoes while dancing.
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend to learn that when he says it will be okay soon, it will. To tell her that not all is hopeless even when she feels like it. To show her, how it feels to be loved unselfishly.
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend to teach her that her value as a person is more than the way she looks. To give her a strong willful character. To feel whole and complete. To remind her of the comfort of being held near and feeling secure. Who will not punish her for her mistakes, but help her learn from them. To help her try again whenever she fails. To share with her, the wisdom she has not yet acquired.
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend to calm her down when she is stressed by her challenges. Who will make sacrifices so she will not have to sacrifice. Who will influence her life, even when he is not with her. To show her to embrace her flaws. To teach her to stand up for herself. To hold her just because she wants to be held. To teach her to believe she deserves to be treated well. To protect her when she is not wise enough to protect herself. To teach her that forgiving is a natural thing to do. To teach her that she can forgive more than once. To teach her that respect is to be earned as he has earned hers. To teach her to preserve her dignity through difficult times.
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend to teach her what it means to always be there. To be the safe spot, she can always run to. TO SHOW HER NOT ALL BOYS ARE LIKE THE ONES WHO HAVE HURT HER. To be the standard which she will judge all men. So that when no one else is there for her, she can close her eyes and see him. To show her that true love is unconditional.
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend so she will know what it is like to be someone’s favorite. To help her find her way in life. To join her journey when she is too afraid to walk alone. To pull her back when she is headed in the wrong direction. So she will have at least ONE HERO who won’t let her down. Who will let her know that while she may not be the center of someone else’s world, she is the center of his..
A girlfriend needs a boyfriend because without him, she will have LESS in her life than she deserves.
And that made me cry a little. And it made me miss him even more.
