Stay single until you meet the girl whose love heals you, changes you and makes you better.
By Kirsten Corley
The girl you look at with a confidence you’ve never known before.
The girl you’d proudly introduce your parents to.
Stay single until you meet the girl who makes you act fast because you can’t stand the thought of her being with anyone else.
The type of girl you can’t imagine hurting or disappointing.
Stay single until you meet the type of girl who believes in you and your dreams and is in your corner entirely.
The one who builds you up constantly and pushes you to be more and do more.
The one who is driven and motivates you to do more.
The one who forces you to take chances in your life.
But the greatest of all is taking a chance on her.
Stay single until you meet the girl who scares you a little.
The one who makes you feel ways you haven’t before.
The one you think about at 2 Am as you wonder, “what is happening to me?”
Stay single until you meet the girl whose face you see when you listen to certain songs, that used to not mean much to you.
The one who makes you smile and laugh in ways you forget.
The one who makes you forget about pain from the past.
Stay single until you meet the girl who is genuine and has a heart of gold.
The one who beats to her own drum and is authentic.
The one whose touch heals you.
Whose kiss makes you want more.
Whose presence makes you enjoy every moment.
The one who makes you want to be a better man.
Stay single until you meet the girl you have to try a little harder to impress because everything in the past you’ve done with others won’t work.
The one who makes you want to take it slow in a generation that tells us to rush into the things.
The girl who makes you nervous before a first date.
The one who won’t take you for granted and will always says thank you.
Stay single until you meet the girl who meets you half way.
The one who accepts your shortcomings and flaws.
Stay single until you meet the girl you can look at and see a good mother you can raise a family with.
The one you want to build a life with.
The one who can hold her own and doesn’t need you but chooses you.
Stay single until you meet the girl who would do anything for you.
The one who loves you deeply and isn’t afraid of it.
Stay single until you meet the girl you want to spoil.
The one you want to spend Sunday mornings with.
The one you can look at sleeping and think she’s the most beautiful girl in the world.
Stay single until you find a girl who still gives you butterflies when she walks in a room, as you say to everyone around you, “that’s her.”
The one you look at and think, “finally.”
Until then stay single.
