I believe that there is a special person for everyone.
For me it is my boyfriend Zach. Zach is that special person to me. His personal qualities fit like a puzzle to my needs of my ultimate companion. If I found someone unique, there is someone for everyone.
The first time I met Zach was at some apartments in Rocklin. I met him through a good friend of mine. It was in January of last year when we met. At first, I was shy to talk to him and everything, but when we started talking it became as if we knew each other. We only dated for about a month at first because he wasn’t caring about school and was getting himself into trouble. We stayed broken up for about eight months. In November, he finally asked me out. He had wanted to ask me out but he was afraid that I would say no, but he was wrong.
Zach and I have things in common. On our first date, he took me to dinner; we had In-n-Out. Then, we went to the movies and saw “Saw Five”. It was gory with a lot of blood. It was a good movie; but, it is not exactly what you should go see on your first date and everything. We both learned that we both like gory movies. With foods and music we agree. For Example, we like Italian, Mexican, and sushi. For music we both like hard metal rock.
On the other hand, Zach and I are total opposites. We have some likes and dislikes. For example: for football, he likes the Eagles and I like the 49ers and for basketball, he likes the Lakers and I like the Kings. To me, what makes Zach a special person is that he is kind, sweet, caring and does not care what people think. I never feel that I always have to agree with him.
He is caring and would stick up for me. He also would stick up for anyone he knew. When I say he is caring, for example, when it is cold outside he will offer to let me wear his sweater. He opens doors. He is just a sweetheart to me and that is what makes him special to me. He is also special to me because he is the kind of person who will listen to what I have to say or what other people have to say. It could be a good or bad conversation, but in the end, I know that he will still love me. It would have to be something really bad for us to never talk again. I believe nothing bad will ever happen. That is what makes him special.
I also like that he is not the kind of guy that would pressure you into doing something that you don’t want to do. That, I think is a rare quality to find in a guy. I believe that in the end, that one special person that you hold on dearly to in your heart will always be there for you. It is like saying, “for better or for worst”.
I believe that everyone has a special person somewhere in there life. You may not find that special person now, but someday you will find him or her and that would be something worth holding on to. If you let them go or they are taken from you for one reason or another, that special place in your heart that they once filled may or may not be filled again. So, yes, I do believe that there is a special person for everyone.
