The world is full of “good catches” and natural born leaders. Please stop mistaking my not needing you for me not you.These people have a hard time settling down because they want to be pushed and challenged, but they don’t think it can mutually exist with love.

The person who slightly intimidates you — because you admire her character, work ethic, strength, satire, step, drive, passion, etc.

She’s been through more than you can imagine and somehow, she came out with her head held high and a smile that’s brighter than sunshine. Otherwise someone else will, and all you will have is a Facebook timeline full of their awesome love story.
