“The man who will love you will not look like anyone”
You do not know him. He does not know you either. You are not looking for him, nor is he in a hurry to find you. He does not imagine you, you do not know if he is handsome or ugly, you do not know if he looks like what you have dreamed. You do not even care to learn yet. It’s enough that you know it’s somewhere out there.
The person who will love you goes out, drinks, has a good time and pulls his forces, like everyone else. He turns here and there, laughs a lot and has no idea what awaits him. You do not know if you will find him or if he will find you. However, you will find yourself, and this thought calms you down and makes you smile.
When you first see him, everything will make sense; you will understand, he will understand too. Your heart will not stop, nor will your knees be cut like in the movies. But people will lose their rhythm for a few minutes, and there, in “I’m very happy”, you will understand why you did not feel that way with anyone else. Because his look will tell you everything, before you even exchange names.
This man will not attack you because you have no flaws. He will blame you for just that. He will not say big words, but he will do great deeds. And no matter how skeptical you look at him in the beginning, he will always find ways to pleasantly surprise you, even when your beginning is a distant past.
He may not be as romantic as you imagined, he may even find it difficult to understand the way you think, but he will try. And it will show you what others have failed to show you. It will make you believe that people are lucky to have you, and this will be their most important achievement.
You will go for walks in the sea, you will moan about his work, you will make him angry, you will watch movies, you will eat ice cream until your stomach hurts, you will laugh to tears, you will quarrel and you will find them again with the same intensity. You will tell him things you have not said to anyone, he will be happy with your enthusiasm, he will not compete with you. He will not make fun of your irrational dreams but he will seek to be a part of them. You will be close, lovers and partners and he will teach you that difficulties are easier when there are two at the helm of the relationship.
He will hug you when your ego is hurt and yet he will manage to show you that the broken pieces stick with a little patience, contrary to what common sense has taught you. When he meets you you may look at the world with fear, maybe your cynicism will not let you go, but none of this will make him leave. This man will change your worldview, because he will know how to fight.
And you will love him more than anyone, because he will make you experience things that you have never experienced before. You will let him be one step ahead of you and you will be proud that he is yours. You will love him more than anyone else, because you will know that your predecessors loved you a whole, romantic and spontaneous self; but he will love you for your scratches, at a time when you might not characterize your psyche as lovable.
And when you argue he will not let you go, nor will he be frightened by your careless outbursts. He will put you in your place and hold you tyrannically next to him until you solve it, because he will consider it logical that people do not meet to give up on the first difficulty. Because he will know that when something goes wrong you do not throw it away, but you fix it; just as our grandmothers taught us.
It will teach you that security does not necessarily mean boredom, that passion changes forms, but does not disappear, that loves not only hurt, but also give wings. And when you are not there, it will be as if you are. Because he will not have to hide, nor will he be afraid to be himself. Everything will come so naturally that he will not have to pretend for a moment.
The person who will love you will not treat you as an alternative, but as the only choice; not to choose you only on the day he will take care of you, but to choose you every day. Give him wings to fly away from you, and he to stay next to you because for him the word “home” will no longer refer to walls, but to the person who loves him, to you. This man made sure he did not look like anyone.
