What someone should’ve told my mother before her marriage

Silly girl, don’t you realize that love is just settling? One day you’ll meet a guy, and he will be nice, handsome, smart, and he will please your parents. But you and I both know he will never fill the hole inside you, the part that secretly wants a little more. Maybe he doesn’t listen well, or he watches too much football. When you come home you want more than a silent hello or a kiss on the head. More than a “good job darling” when you get that job promotion. He’s a nice man, we both will know that, but he isn’t the one. Love is just settling. Love is taking what you think you need, not what you actually need. He’s a nice man, but darling, please don’t settle.
