What is it about men that makes them think that, out of all possible mates, they’d be the ideal match or lover for another person?
I ask this because all of a sudden, for the first time, I’ve caught myself thinking like that. Not necessarily the cocky, arrogant frat boy type attitude; but I’m looking at someone and thinking, “Yeah, I could make him happy.” And I want to. I wouldn’t necessarily fulfill all his dreams and desires (no one’s that good), but I’d like to think that being with me would be somewhere on the way to hitting that mark.
Is that just sheer audacity? Or desperate hope?
I don’t know. What I do know is that I just turned 27.
By 28, I’m not going to still be single.
Case in point, this is what I’m talking about:
… I just think you need time to know
That I’m the guy to make it real:
The feelings you don’t dare to feel.
I’ll bend the world to our will,
And we’ll make Time stand still.
… now that’s audacity.
