Interest in first sight
"Fall in love not just because they have beautiful eyes, but with the way those eyes see the world. Fall in love with the way they glisten when they get excited about the things that matter most to them. Fall in love not just because they have nice lips, but fall in love with the endless thoughts and words that come out of them. Fall in love not just because of their smile, but with the reason behind it. Fall in love not just because they have a great chest, but because of the heart that’s underneath it. Fall in love with the great love that they are capable of giving to you and to others.
Fall in love not just because of the way their hands fit yours perfectly, but with the promise of not letting each other go when the going gets tough. Fall in love with the way they listen. Fall in love with the comfortable silences. Fall in love with the way everything seems to fall into place when you’re with them. Fall in love with someone who makes you feel beautiful. Fall in love with them because genuinely beautiful people are iridescent, they share that light and beauty with everything and everyone they touch. Fall in love with someone beautiful because you deserve it.”
- Aia Arkoncel, When did we stop falling in love with character?
