Day 6: Four ways to win your heart.
Also known as, the things that help gain my love and affection. I’ll skip the obvious things like giving me money or buying me ice cream.
As an utterly shameless grub, the only thing that tastes better than food I can’t afford, is food not purchased with my money. Free food. What a marvelous concept!
While niceness might not be necessary, kindness is a non-negotiable. There is just something about being a deliberately considerate and empathetic person that just pulls my soul.
3. Recommend movies and books that fit my taste.
‘Dupe, did you hear that Yaa Gyasi has a new book?’
Nothing draws my heart closer to someone than when they send me a book or movie recommendation, and it happens to be specific to my taste. You mean you were paying attention when I was ranting on about that movie? Best mates for life!
My best relationships are with those whom I can be the most sincere with, the friendships that have transcended keeping up appearances. I am most drawn to people who I can be human with. No boxes. No labels. No pins. Just human.
Thanks for reading! You know the drill. What’s the road to your heart?
