Not A Casual Love Kind Of Girl

For the ones who want, and have, expectations.

There’s nothing casual about that.

You want to go out for margaritas and wake up the next morning to eggs and bacon and the smell of coffee brewing. You want to have a night of mind-blowing physical intimacy, and you want to cuddle in bed for more than a moment the next morning. You want to talk until the wee hours of the morning, and you want to be able to sit in silence and know that there’s no need to fill the air with chatter, for the space between you is already filled with comfort and love.

There’s nothing casual about expectation.

And you know what? That’s ok. It’s ok that you don’t want a casual kind of love. It’s ok that you want someone to lean on and someone to shower with love. It’s ok that you want someone to live with, not beside. It’s ok that you want to know that your person will show up for you, and it’s ok that you want to be the person who shows up for them. You want commitment and consistency, and intimacy, and connection. You want to be in a relationship that wants to be rooted in something bigger than convenience.

I write essays and poetry about life lessons, love, relationships, and self-awareness. More info: meganminutillo.com + @meganminutillo.
