I admit at this point, it’s low hanging fruit but I’m sure everyone has heard about the oh-so beautiful post a ‘relationship expert’ wrote to his fiancee (and the whole world). Now, you might be thinking ”Urgh! People should stop talking about it already!’ and to that, I’d say I’m not talking about it, I’m only making a blog post about it, so…
A quick recap for those who have heard about it and those who haven’t, there was this guy who wrote a very beautiful love post about his fiancee and started it with what every woman on Earth wants to hear at least once in her lifetime ”You’re not the most beautiful woman on Earth; neither are you the most intelligent woman, but like I’ve never chosen to find perfection in anyone else…”
Preach brother! Preach!
Many people got outraged at the whole post for this part in particular, and I wonder why. Is it because the whole post had a haughty and demeaning undertone (and overtone) about it? Because he goes on to defend his reasoning all the while being a ‘relationship expert’?
Obviously that cannot be it.
I personally admire his amazing grammatical accuracy. Did you see that semi-colon right after you’re not beautiful? Perfect. I don’t even know how to properly use a semi-colon to this day.
My brother in spirit went on to say “…Stating that you’re not the beautiful/intelligent might sound like it’s not a compliment, yeah?…”
Of course not. How can pointing out someone’s deficiencies on such a grand scale and to such a large amount of people sound like its not a compliment?
“…But it’s a realistic base for real love. Acknowledging my woman isn’t the best, but I’m not looking for the best. I was looking for you and I found you…’”
He wasn’t looking for the best, you know, some people go into relationships with their respective partners because they believe they have found the best person who completes them, but not him. He was looking for her, the not-best, which makes me applaud his amazing prophetic skills because before they even met he already knew and was in search for her.
“…this to me is real love. Not the one that consoles itself in the faux reality that their partner is the most good-looking, most intelligent, most successful person in the world. That’s disingenuous and doesn’t give room for love to thrive…”
Other people lie when they tell their significant other they are most beautiful person to them (or in the whole world) but he comes right out and says it to his partner that they aren’t.
I love this vibe he’s giving just like he loves her. Set the boundaries, clear the air because by chance, she might think that in all of the 3 billion plus women in the world, she is the most beautiful or the most intelligent and we can’t have that.
Of course, any man who tells his significant other that she is the most beautiful woman he has ever laid eyes upon is a cheating, lying, manipulative bastard that needs to be behind bars for committing such a horrible crime. That’s not true love, because it doesn’t grow in such a rigid situation where you compliment one another. You have to come online and say to the whole world that your partner is neither smart nor beautiful. That, lovelies, is true love.
All in all, this is the summary on it and I definitely reported it as unbiased as I can. No judgement, at all.
I think this is the point where I would state that to each his own, and as long as the fiancee doesn’t have a problem with it, why should I? So let’s assume I said that.
