Someone who is whole, who can be their own person and be recognised as an independent being. Whilst I want the whole roots twisting together thing I do not want to become a single entity, the ideal would be two individuals who have twisted around each other enough times to be seen as one but are still functioning as two individual souls. Connected yes, but not merged into one big lump. Someone who I feel comfortable with when they're peeking into my mind and vice versa. There's a whole load of other stuff but that can be found with almost anyone under the sun provided we were mutually attracted, but feeling completely comfortable, like they're my mind mate ... that's a whole other thing. I don't want someone too similar, I like to be challenged, to be encouraged to grow, to read, to educate myself, and I want someone who feels I give them opportunities to do the same. I don't know. I want to be a "we" with someone, but in order for that to happen we both have to be a "me", whatever "me" is, and we both have to recognise that whilst out love may be intertwined for one another we, as individuals, are not one being. I want compatibility, understanding, but I want difference too.
I just know that if we were two trees i'd want us to be different from each other but growing towards each other. A bit like when two hawthorn buses start winding around each other. They're still two independent trees, but they've grown together, they're stronger together, appear as one, but they still function as two.
I have no idea what I really want, I just know that I want them to accept me as I am, nothing more and nothing less, and in turn I want to accept them for who they are, then together we can live as one but two.
This needs editing. Oh well.
