"When we're together, the laughter's loud, the stories are endless, and the

my troubles in check, and renews my outlook for another day. No wonder I call

It Happens: Royalty
After trying so hard to give my all without receiving much joy in return, I realized that if I don't stand for something I'll fall for anything. Cliche? Knowing deep down that I was forcing myself to accept an unacceptable situation, I did what was best for me and searched for an exit. Walking out of it, I can honestly say I waved good-bye with a smile on my face. What was once attraction at first sight, remained just that from start to finish. There was no friendship, no understanding, and no similarity. Opposites attract. Cliche? In all actuality, those of similarity attract and become opposites when it matters and sees fit. Relationships that start off as friendships are the strongest relationships. Cliche? With each passing relationship, I can openly admit that not once have I fallen for a friend and opened a romantic chapter with one. Possibly out of fear that a tough breakup could ruin two connections, I refrained from crossing lines. Or, possibly each guy I've met asked me out before I could even consider them a friend. I always wondered what it would be like to transition from calling someone a really close friend to referring to them as someone special or a significant other. I've finally stopped wondering and am now experiencing. There's some many old adages and cliche responses that we hear so often but ignore just as frequently because of how common they are. These sayings come a dime a dozen and are overlooked and taken lightly. I, for once, can support these sayings with personal testimony instead of individual wonders and assumptions. It's not often you have a red carpet laid out for you, or what seems like one, someone referring to you as Queen, or what sounds like it, and someone pampering you without requesting it, or what feels like it. Not many women are given the pleasure of experiencing the lifestyle of Royalty. However, I have. I am blessed with a King, that not only plays his part as a man, but puts in overtime to make me feel like a woman. I know my heart is in the right place, I put it there.
