I just had an epiphany of sorts.
The other day I was talking to a friend about the difference of want and need.
I said that while we need people in our lives to share things with, happiness, sadness and everything in between, I don’t need a significant other, but I very much want someone.
I was wrong. So, SO wrong.
I do need that significant other. Because above anything, that person should be my very best friend.
I will want other friends of course, but I won’t need them so much, because I will have my best friend.
Everything else that comes with the very best friend is a bonus. If the sex is great and they have great parents, all the better.
But firsty, they should be your very best friend.
I forgot that.
