Average Jane


Have you ever met someone who was impossible to look at? Someone so beautiful they seemed unreal?

Have you ever looked into someone’s eyes and seen kindness so pure that it hurt? Seen a smile that revealed a warmth and joy you only wish you could know?

Have you ever  seen someone who should only exist in theory, but who you see right in front of you? Who not only looks like a work of art, but who is kind and interesting… who listens when you speak?

Have you ever been so struck by someone that you walk away too soon? Have you ever wished you could have one more moment with a perfect stranger…?

Just one more moment.

God, I’m such a girl.

    Those moments with a stranger are never long enough. It is too easy to spend a lifetime thinking about what could have been. It’s okay to linger a bit, but don’t let it keep you from moving on. Those are the words from a hopeless romantic.

    This is one of the most poetic comments I’ve had on this here blog. Thank you so much. I’ll do my best.

    Let’s quote the greats…

    “You’re so beautiful, it hurts to look at you.” -Angela Chase

    Jordan Catalano was an adonis on every level: beautiful, deep, and irreverent. Those writers should be given every award ever. My So Called Life was the perfect show. And your crush on Claire Danes was textbook: picture in cigarette case wallet and all…

  3. it happened to me yesterday… I think I’m losing objectivity… she’s … like…
    We became friends in about 12 seconds, I don’t want to risk becoming anything more today, but I definitly feel like it could happen… I’ve been mentally briefing myself this past night… “ok… this is precious, don’t screw it”… And I’m listening to that atm
    (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsvUHGqd1Cg), which makes this morning feel even more special, because it’s so totally how it sounds in here…

    damn… winamp just switched the awesome romantic music to that… (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na8oDCKp6AU)

    have a good day.

    Jess just thoroughly confused the f*ck out of me!

    But seriously, I kind of know that feeling. It’s the way I felt when I met the first woman that I fell in love with. Even though I eventually found out that woman was the devil incarnate, it was worth it to know that feeling just once! 🙂

    Ditto @ Catherinette, I get that like once a week. 😉 Seriously, though, it happened to me once in England with a Ballerina I met in a bar. We ended up running away to Paris together a week later. The thing about following through on those moments is they make a hell of a story, but sometimes you wonder if you sort of peaked right there in that moment of perfection, and whether any of the rest of your love life might ever live up to it.

    Damn how I miss that girl.

    My neighbor is one such person. I don’t care that she uses her looks to get me to be her handy man.

    Use me baby, use me.

    It’s kind of sad that listening when someone speaks is such a rare quality, but it is (guilty as charged myself).

    Narrator: When people think you’re dying, they really, really listen to you, instead of just…
