If you ever fall in love, fall in love with someone who...
You can laugh with, but also cry with.
You can joke around with, but also be serious with.
You can enjoy the present moment with, but also envision a future with.
You can enjoy nights out with, but also sit in comfortable silence.
You can bring around your friends, but also around your family.
You can be young and crazy with, but also picture being old and wise with.
You're proud to be with.
You smile just thinking about.
You would do anything to spend time with.
You make a priority in your life.
You can picture raising children with.
You genuinely miss when they aren't around.
Fall in love with someone who comes into your life and makes you understand why it never worked out with anyone else.
Fall in love with someone who motivates you to become the best version of yourself, without changing who you really are.
Fall in love with someone who you'll pledge to choose every single day.
Fall in love with someone who supports your goals, dreams, and ambitions.
Fall in love with someone who you believe in.
And most importantly, fall in love with someone who feels the exact same way about you.
