Times I thought "I'll be lucky enough to meet a man who is smart, funny, incredibly sexy and good looking, who will love me just as much as I love him, and who will love and care enough about me to take care of me in all the right ways, without being overbearing or possessive; A man I trust and miss all the time, who I can't wait to see at the end of the day; A man who will make me laugh and make me delirious with happiness, who lets me be exactly who I am, and whom I will love because of exactly who he is; A man who will make me feel safe and cared for and loved, who I will love in ways I never even thought possible before.": Never
