My Frenchman loves me the way I am. What that means is that he doesn’t try to change me. He accepts me for who I am and loves me for it.
Ever been with a guy before who wants you to dress differently, cut your hair differently, think differently, behave differently? It’s not a great feeling. In fact, it eats away at your soul until there’s almost nothing left. Please, please, don’t go there. Instead, find yourself someone who likes the person that you are and wants you to be that person, by their side, forever.
By loving me the way I am, my Frenchman has given me the chance to blossom. As a girlfriend, I don’t think I’ve ever really been given that chance before. To feel genuinely loved, quirks and all. That space that was opened up for me allows me to be my true self. The difference being that the feeling of unconditional love makes me want to open up my heart fully, be vulnerable and just be.
I think the best matches are those that accept each other just the way they are. Of course, no one’s perfect, but there are ways of glossing over what’s not really important in the grand scheme of things. Like leaving dirty socks on the floor. I mean, who cares! If you can look at your other half 3 years into your relationship and still think, I wouldn’t change a thing, you’ve struck gold. Now all you’ve got to do is keep appreciating each other and nurturing your love.
Not a day goes by that I don’t look at my Frenchman and count my blessings. For me, he’s the man I’ve always been waiting for.
I wish the same for you in 2016.
Joyeux Noël !
