I can’t ask you to fall in love with a woman that reads, because someone already did it for me.

But, I can ask you to fall in love with a true woman. Fall in love with a woman that looks for silly shapes in the clouds. Fall in love with a woman that even though she’s scared, she is strong enough to admit it and tears through that fear. Fall in love with a woman that doesn’t kill ants just because she can, but with the woman that gently grabs the ant and places it back on a branch. That means that she is merciful and kind, and is capable of caring for others who don’t have the same circumstances as her.

Fall in love with a woman that is not afraid of hiding how smart she is, nor pretends to be smart. The ones that act stupidly are far more dangerous than the ones who think they are smarter than they really are. More so, why would you like to be with a woman that undermines herself just to catch a guy? Fall in love with a woman that loves to be hugged, that is adorable, likable and ****able. These are all important. Fall in love with a woman that doesn’t put on much makeup. They’re honest and confident. The ones that put on too much makeup grow old faster. Fall in love with a woman that is Team Mafalda and not Team Barbie.

Fall in love with a woman that loves to eat. Life is more enjoyable eating pizza rather than lettuce. Fall in love with a woman that loves music. It doesn’t matter that the genre she likes is different from yours. Music can bring you together whenever times are tough, cure you whenever sick and found whenever lost. Fall in love with a woman that knows how to cook, that loves to wash the dishes or that has the capital to buy a dishwasher. Créeme en ésta.

Fall in love with a woman that is more worried about the zeros on her paycheck than on yours. Fall in love with a woman that loves you because you make her laugh and not because you buy her things. Fall in love with a woman that takes a deep breath to settle down when she sees you. Fall in love with a woman that cannot hide anything. Fall in love with the eyes that know betrayal and tell you what you need to know. Fall in love with her because her eyes light up when she sees you. That means that she has fallen in love with you.

Fall in love with a woman that talks plenty, so that you won’t have to. Yours is the simple part: smile and assert as if you know what she is talking about. Fall in love with a woman that listens to you intently. Fall in love with a woman that makes you feel guilty and genuinely sorry once in a while. Because for her to have that power is the ultimate antidote for your arrogance and your pride. Fall in love with a woman that doesn’t know how to iron, so your time together will never be wasted. Fall in love with a woman that knows how to write “news” of her love. The “news” revive those butterflies fluttering in your stomach and can send a rush of blood to the…heart.

Fall in love with a woman that likes to dance. Remember that dancing is the vertical expression of a horizontal desire. Fall in love with a woman that thinks of a plethora of things, of things to do and of people other than you. Fall in love with a woman with pastimes, with intrigues, with passions. That is not only you, so she doesn’t suffocate you. Fall in love with a woman that knows love has to be free. A compulsory love only causes damage to the involved parties.

Fall in love with a woman that loves and lets love. That is and lets it be. Fall in love with me or with someone like me, so it doesn’t hurt me as much.
