We all need love . Many of the things we do, whether we are aware of them or not, are in done as a means to the same end. And that end is love.
We all need different kinds of love. We need our parents to love us. Our kids. We need a partner to love us through life.
But mostly, we need someone to love us even when we do not deserve it. We need someone to love us through our self doubt... through our confusion about who we are. We need someone to love us romantically and someone to love us for the dirty fantasies we want to fulfill. Love is a broad spectrum. The lucky ones find their one perfect someone to love them in all the ways they need... others are lucky enough to find it from different people... a spouse, a friend, a fuck buddy...
...... and the rest of us... we continue searching, day in and day out... trying to find the one to fill the gaps we so desperately need filled.
