“Love is a beautiful thing when you share it with the right person.”
1) The First Love
First love is also commonly called as “The High School Sweetheart.” The First Love is certainly the first guy you’ll ever so kiss. He most likely plays a sport and wears an athlete jacket. He’ll gift you his class ring (which is quite bigger, thus you’ll gladly wrap yarn around I and wear it as a symbol of honor.)
2) The One That Could Have Been
Perhaps you met him when one of you was already in a relationship. Possibly every time you begin to get close, work or life or something else totally unexpected occurred amongst you. Perhaps it was just the God looking out for you, as He knows that both of you glowed too brilliantly together to ever hold a long-lasting spark.
Maybe in some other lifetime you were perfect to each other… but may not in this one.
Best-selling author Liz Gilbert describes how a soul mate ought to be in ‘Eat Pray Love’:
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soulmate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soulmates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.”
3) The Bad Boy
This one might likely steal away your heart in your early 20’s, in those days while you’re trying to understand who you are and who you desire to be, and observing your wings appears to come with a face of insurrection. You’ll believe you can change him, but you can’t. (And inward, you won’t wish that, since if you do so, he’d no more be the one who took off your heart). He’ll make you cry a lot or much more he make you smile. Beneath everything, you imagine he has a golden heart – and he likely does – but it will require years and several girls after you to reveal it.
4) The One That Got Away
This guy will look perfect – and inwardly, you believe he is. He’ll speak about all the good stuff, do all the good things, and be the exact image of all the things you ever expected you wished…except right away that you have it, you wonder whether if you’re ready for that sort of perfection. And probabilities are you might not. Only God and Life knows when you’re ready for that. Thus even though ‘The One That Got Away’ gives you everything you wished to have, he gives nothing you KNOW you actually need. And what you want is more time. Maybe time to date other guys you like but won’t love, or to not date at all and simply find out who you are.
5) The One
Most of us haven’t met this guy yet. I wish to imagine he’s a combination of the previous four. I love to imagine he’s steadfast and sweet like The First Love, and challenging and passionate like The One That Could Have Been, and a bit rough and wild a close to the edges like The Bad Boy, with a heart for trust and creating a life together like The One That Got Away. I wish him to be all of them and none of the, all at the same time. I wish he might personify this list and as well as wipes it out…using the broken pieces of my heart he softly reforms from each of them like the eraser.
