You know how once in a while, or, anyway, maybe three times in an, oh, ever, you meet someone who just really gets you, in both a physical and emotional way?
Like, when you're in proximity to the person you feel like you have cinnamon red-hots pasted onto every centimeter of your body? And they can make you catch your breath simply by looking you in the eyes? And even if you are not actually with this person anymore, and just meet up for a friendly dinner and casual conversation, it feels like the air around you is sparkly?
It really bugs me, because you can't create this chemistry, and you can't force it to dissipate. And it's really, really hard to ignore, even if you don't act on it. Actually, you have to make a concerted effort not to act on it.
The fact that there are, albeit very few and far between, people in the world who make stepping off the ledge sooo enticing, no matter how high the precipice, is what is making it very hard for me to be a looker-before-I-leaper. Even if I understand that that's a realer, healthier approach to life and relationships.
