“Relationships, like anything else, involve timing. If you’re cooking something, you watch to see when it bubbles and take it off the stove at just the right time. If you wait too long, the pot boils over and the consistency is forever changed. That makes the difference.”
I can't remember where I found the above quote, but I remember that I liked it immediately.
It reminded me of all those girls who wait forever for "the one" to pop the question so they can truly begin their fairytale. The girls, who aren't getting what they want from relationships, but choose to stay in them anyway.
The girls that live in sin, awaiting a ring that may never come.
And while their temperature rises, their patience wanes...
Pots over filled with expectation, they simply go with the motions, heating up for no reason. Expecting to reach the perfect relationship temperature to compliment their recipe for romance.
But what they don't see is that all the expectation and desire in the world isn't enough to create a meal worth eating... a life worth sharing. Because they're not the woman of his dreams, they are the appetizer to his entree, the tapas to his growling stomach.
So while they boil over in a mess of hot tears... their men are waiting patiently on the back burner.
Expecting something better will suit their palates.
