Love and solitude

This is what happens when you peruse OKCupid profiles–you may find a gem that sticks with you for a good long while. Like this from a wonderful poet named Warsan Shire
 
My alone feels so good, I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.
 
Yes. This, this, this. I’m fine, good alone (that’s an introvert for you). And yes, I’ve set a high bar. But the bar is worth hurdling. If I may be so immodest.
 
And then there’s this gem…
 
“You are terrifying and strange and beautiful, someone not everyone knows how to love.” 
 
True, too. I may not be cuddly and sparkling and have fireworks shooting out of my butt. But I am lovable. And I have to give that lovability back, too. 
 
It is, and should be, a cycle.
