To all my magnificent single sisters: This one’s for you!
The Plight of the Modern Woman in Search for the Modern Man
Intelligent, independent, courageous and strong,
Beautiful, generous, thoughtful and kind.
Laughing with you over the Holy Grail.
Speaking your language of Tarantino, fantasy, adventure and sci-fi.
Tossing down pints and whiskey shots.
Cursing like a sailor.
And beneath it all, a quiet and tender heart
Where your fears can come home.
She’ll cook you dinner, rub your shoulders,
And make mad, passionate love to you,
freeing your mind from the worries of the day.
She’s the one you can come home to –
The one you can trust.
Satisfied in her own pursuits,
Seeking only to love and to know love in return.
How could you want for more?
And yet, she strikes fear in the hearts of many a man,
Because while she wants you more than anything in this world,
She’s not seeking completion from one who feels empty inside.
She’s looking for a true partner.
One who can stand on his own
And who in spite of his wholeness,
Chooses to be with her
They can change the world.
