Anyone who doesn't believe that humans are meant to be paired up are really missing something in my opinion. I know that a lot of the things you can get in a relationship you can also get when you are single.
However there is one thing that is very different when you are in a relationship and that is touch. I am not talking about sex or anything like it. What I am talking about is that gentle touch that comes from being held by someone who truly loves you and someone who truly knows how to touch you.
This is something I would miss more than anything else if I didn't have it. In those times when I am single it is the thing I miss the most and then when I am with someone it is the thing I cherish the most.
I know there are a lot of people out there who will say you can feel that touch elsewhere but my experience is that it really only comes from someone who truly knows and respects you. Someone who has nothing but unconditional love and knows your body well.
I guess this is one of those things that reminds me of the beauty of being alive. I am someone who believes we are not meant to live our lives alone and that we are meant to share our lives with someone. Touch is one of those things that reinforce that belief. We all survive when we don't have someone and that's ok, but there are a lot of things that are only obtainable from being in that kind of deep relationship with someone.
I'm yet to understand why the universe doesn't make that match of people simpler but I'm sure there is a reason why it takes so much to find that depth and love. If you have that you will know what I am talking about. If you have never had that I can only say I hope some day you get to feel that.
