Have you ever been anyone’s first priority—really? Do you know what it feels like to be the only person that someone thinks about for hours on end, to be the first person they think of in the morning and the last person they think of at night? Have you ever been the person who someone contacts whenever they have free time so that they can try to fill it with as many experiences with you as soon as possible?
Do you know what it’s like to always get your hopes up, and to never end up being disappointed or unsatisfied once your hopes take form? Do you know the feelings and emotions that someone experiences when another person always shows up early, and is always positive, encouraging, and loving for the entire day and night? All human beings should know exactly what it feels like to be thought of as the complete opposite of a one-night stand.
Everyone should be able to experience the feeling of always hearing the truth rather than deceptions or half-truths, and everyone should know what it feels like to witness this truth in someone else’s eyes—time after time, day after day. All human beings should know what it feels like to be with another human being who demonstrates these degrees of honesty because it’s part of their natural character—not because they’re on their best behavior.
Every person should know what it feels like when someone puts forth huge amounts of effort and love in order to make them happy. All individuals should know what it’s like to be the one who isn’t putting the most into their relationship—at least not all the time. Each person should know what it feels like to have true love reciprocated, and to have the immense love that they put forth sent back to them, only from another equally powerful source.
All human beings should know what it’s like to be shown off respectfully, properly, and lovingly: to be introduced with honor, and to be bragged about with love. Each human should know what it feels like to be with someone who is genuinely attracted to them more than anyone else and to know precisely where they stand with the other person and their relationship. Everyone should know what it’s like not to have to worry about mixed signals or mixed messages, and not to have to worry about guessing their partner’s thoughts, feelings, or emotions.
We should all know what it feels like to be loved the way a human being is supposed to be loved by their partner: passionately, consistently, and more than anyone else. We should all know what it’s like to be with someone who would never hurt us—because hurting us would hurt them far more.
