About The Next Girl I’ll Be In Love With.

The single life can get pretty lonely, but I’ve been hurt a couple of times that I find it hard to even like someone.

In all honesty, I have tried to develop feelings for a few people (if that’s even possible), but it’s not working.

It’s like I have lost all my ability to feel, but I crave love, you know, I’ve missed all the mushiness. But when you have been battered as I have been, you don’t take people at face value.

Basically, I have found a pattern in my past loves which I am trying to avoid; I’ve been with a lot of emotionally selfish people. Now, this is what the next girl imma be in love with will be like.

First,she will be able to sing, I have never dated a girl that can sing. I love music and I feel dating someone who can sing will be so refreshing .

Second, she will love Kanye West, Kanye is a very special person to me and I don’t think people ever try to wonder why, but I feel if she gets Kanye, she would, to some extent, understand my emotional whirlwind and my need to be creative, to be a part of something bigger than me.

Lastly, I need a free spirit, someone who is not bound by societal clichès or norms; someone who just wants to live, I don’t know if you understand what I mean, I need to be on that Bonnie and Clyde shit. My heart is melting right now thinking about her.

Oh one more thing before I go, this girl must be interested in getting to know me genuiely. Like she should be someone I can open up to, because I never did that and I will like to know how that feels.

I know I’m out here making demands without saying what exactly I will do for the girl in return, but I have spent the last 5 years being the good boy, being caring and all and still got burnt several times. So for once, I would like to be at the receiving end of love and affection.
