The Perfect Man
The perfect man...
...he celebrates the day we first met because for him, it is THE most important day of his life
...he looks at me as if I were the most beautiful woman on earth
...he holds my soft, velvety, meant-for-holding hands at every possible moment (even when we are dining out)
...he enjoys dancing with me including swing, cha-cha, other ballroom dances but his most favorite is "sweet" or slow dance
...he loves gazing at sunsets and full moons with me because he enjoys the view, and the company much better
...he likes walking along the beach with me at may pa sway-sway pa because he loves nature, and loves me a zillion times more!
...he can engage in hours-long conversations with me, from the "mababaw" to the most sublime topics
...he enjoys snuggling with me to watch a romantic comedy (DVD - original, not pirated of course) but only half-concentrating because he could hardly breathe with my oh so close presence
...he plays Scrabble with me and tries to score high so I can get the satisfaction of playing my favorite game and competing against a worthy opponent
...he cooks meals (especially my favorite dishes - lechon, kare-kare, rellenong manok, paella) - for me, knowing that I am a hopeless cook and that I love to eat
...he loves to sing love songs to me with lyrics like "I was born for you", "wherever you're going, I'm going your way", "how do I live without you?" [he also insists on doing the singing, knowing that I'm sintonado to the nth degree]
...he reads my books and blogs over and over again, savoring every word like I was the greatest writer ever born
...he laughs at my jokes, no matter how corny (which makes him a rare breed indeed!)
...he does not laugh with the others when I commit boo-boos but quietly corrects me in private so that I may not be embarrassed again in the future
...he wipes my tears away whenever I cry but refrains from saying "Don't cry, Shopgirl" (because that line has been used by Tom Hanks in "You've Got Mail")
...he understands me through and through and accepts me even if I am at my worst
...he thinks I'm perfect despite my many imperfections, warts, alipunga and all
...he is 100% honest with me and with everybody else because like me, he believes that honesty is the next best policy (the best policy is...watch for a future blog)
...he has much to be proud of but says little of his own accomplishments - humility is a virtue I cannot proudly claim but can learn from him
...he has such a big heart he cannot be outloved by anyone but humble enough to receive love even in small ways
...he cannot answer the question, "How do you love Nimia?"...he would just say "I cannot count the ways"
...he is all these and so much more!
And so I have come to three conclusions:
1) The perfect man is Jesus.
2) The perfect man does not exist.
3) The perfect man does exist!....(in my incurable romantic mind)
p.s. If you beg to disagree with number 2, you know how to get in touch with me he he.
