Oh my, It might be that time. I’m getting those butterflies again. I absolutely love those flickers of when you think you’re interested in someone. The last time I fell for someone, I crash landed.
It came out of nowhere and to be honest, I’ve finally recovered from it. To have a slower spark is a bit of a relief. I’m also a pretty impulsive person, so having time to sort things out probably isn’t the worst thing for me. For once I want to use my brain instead of my heart. For once I want to know that this thing I’m feeling is real before my heart takes a leap and ends up breaking for real.
Here’s the problem of the hour: while the new guy is pretty much perfect on paper, that’s my problem. In other words, it’s hard to believe that it’s going to work out and I am going to be happy in a relationship for once in a long while. I know its cliche to say “I’ve been hurt so many times before” but I don’t care because for this girl, it’s truer than any person on this planet, friend or foe knows. I’ve been down this road and that road and every road in between and to tell you the truth, I’m not sure these butterflies I’m feeling even really exist. Is it just some fantasy I’ve created? Am I really floating high from his touch and kiss because I know when the floating starts I am bound to drop face first right back where I started from. Could this be real? For once am I ready to take that chance and let go of my heart to see what he’s really got?
I’m more than ready to let go, and take the leap, to trust someone again, and believe, but the bar is set pretty high to obtain my trust and love. You have to be a pretty special person to get me to fall. You see I’ve fallen for them all. They all say what you want to hear, but when the time comes to get serious, they all disappear. You all know what I mean; they have their catch phrases, the ones you want to hear. The ones that make you go weak in the knees and lose yourself in the words you were longing to hear. But just once, could these words be true? Could I really be falling for the one that is true?
Trying to hop over it isn’t going to be easy. In the meantime, I’m going to bask in the warm fuzziness of butterflies and the endless possibilities of what might be…..
