Finding a lover. A person to kiss.
A person to go on dates with. A person whose hand you squeeze during scary movies. A person to open your life to, give your heart to, who you can see yourself with, years and years down the road. But perfection in love?

And finding a flawless, completes-me type of person? Thank goodness, because none of us would make the cut. I want a best friend. I want someone I can be completely myself around. I want someone to laugh with.
To stay up late with and talk about dreams. To go on adventures with, big or small. I want someone I can talk to openly, fearlessly, about my biggest regrets and future plans.
Someone who I can trust. Someone I can tease, go out drinking with, or stay in and binge-watch Prison Break with. I want someone who knows all my inner secrets, drama, and proudest moments. Who will go places with me, or take me to dinner and actually talk about things that matter. But will still do those things sometimes, just because. See, I think the world has it all wrong.
I think love is all about finding your best friend. Because that mushy-gushy, intimate stuff will come naturally.
I want a best friend—someone I love, yes, but more importantly, someone I can truly know. And someone who knows me, inside and out, flaws and quirks and all my weirdness, yet still chooses to be mine.
When all you want is a best friend
