As a young woman (early 20s) I used to buy Valentine Cards for no one in particular. Well, actually, I was buying Valentine Cards for My Dream Man, who wasn't making an appearance. But I thought, he must be right around the corner. I remember one of the cards I bought said on the front: 'You're not perfect.' and on the inside it said, "... but you're perfect for me." That's what I thought I was looking for: not for the perfect mate, but just perfect "for me."
I had a couple of other cards, too, that I bought, just because I thought they were so clever, even though I didn't have anyone to send them to. But I don't remember the clever sentiments of those any more. Just "....perfect for you."
So, what makes my husband Not Perfect... but perfect for me?
...a love of creativity, I suppose, and music. We both love words, and care about the church. Neither of us is good at dancing, but we both like to swim. He has a pretty good sense of humor, too. He wants me to write, and keeps saying, 'You should put that in your blog." Not perfect, but then neither am I.
What about you? What makes your mate..."perfect for you?" Or if you are single, what are you looking for?
