[I came across this draft tonight which I wrote many many many moons ago, and decided to share it tonight out of boredom, Enjoy!]
After a few failed relationships I do not dare to judge. I feel clueless :) I think in life, nothing comes for free. You get a certain capital at birth, but after that, you need to work to get what you want. For example, you can’t be healthy without taking care of your health. You can’t be happy without working on your happiness. I guess a relationship (whether romantic or friendship) cannot work unless two people equally work on it. And as I learned on previous relationships, equal compromise should be one of the most pivotal qualities of and in a relationship, that sadly most people lack or dare not do. It’s much like Javan said on his great poem Meet My Halfway (highly recommend it) “It is a tragedy when one person is giving, the other one taking, and they think that they are both sharing” I also strongly believe in the words from Harvey Milk: “You’re going to meet the most extraordinary men, the sexiest, brightest, funniest men, and you’re going to fall in love with so many of them, and you won’t know until the end of your life who your greatest friends were or your greatest love was.” I guess if I HAD to choose one or two qualities in Mr. Right, it would be being able to compromise and meeting me half way. I’m not asking you to come to me, nor should you expect me to come to you, let’s just simply meet half way.
