Everything you can imagine is real.

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.

The Banjo Lesson, Henry Ossawa Tanner, 1893

The night we’d spent talking had moved me, but it was one of those experiences you want to put under glass and keep whole and separate forever, like an intense one-night stand. You share so much, make yourself so vulnerable, because there is to be no second act, no consequences.

Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are.
