Four things I will do but only if I really like you


I mock you. I will tease you. I will challenge you. I will laugh at your imagined flaws. The crueler I am, the closer we are. I reserve politeness for my enemies. 

I ignore you. When I meet someone with whom I truly connect, I want nothing more than to sit in silence with them. I need no more than your presence. I long for an hour with you on a quiet train, as you read your book and I read mine.

I don't respond. You text me, you email me, you send me Facebook messages and I just don't reply. Not for an hour, not for a day, sometimes not for weeks and weeks because I want to respond honestly and openly and when I have the headspace. I think you deserve that. Sometimes I feel so connected with you I reply in my mind and think you have received it. 

I won't cook for you. I almost never cook because I hate cooking. I will eat the food you cook for me because I like you and I like eating. If you come to my house you will get pizza and/or wine and I won't feel shame because I love you enough to show you my failings and believe you will still love me.

  1. I totally understands these points, especially the cooking part. What worse if you decided to cook something nice but the other person doesn't agree... oh... well... next time you cook then. lol! x #twinklytuesday

  2. I used to be like your first point - treat them mean keep them keen moto. But now I've been married for three years there aren't anymore games now. We know where we stand and I love that :)

  3. My mummy ignores people she likes too, as she feels comfortable enjoying the silence with them and doesn't need to fill it with unnecessarily chit chat. Popping over from #TwinklyTuesday

  5. Ahh, these are so true! I especially agree with the "I ignore you" point, when that silence is comfortable then you know you have something special x

  6. I crave silence after a day full of noisy children so I can relate to that.

  7. I too crave silence. You know you are connected to someone when you feel comfortable enough to say nothing x

  8. nodding along in agreement to these - definitely the silence one. If people know me well, they know to not just mindlessly talk haha x

  12. I can relate with most of these points especially point number 2 about ignoring. I think its important your partner knows you are wired that way too so they don't feel like its a personal attack on them but more so an issue you have in yourself.

  13. Sounds like a very sensible list to me.

  14. I think honesty is important, laughing at the flaws in both of you rather than picking away at self esteem. I think this list is fine if you both agree and understand
