Serena Wiliams impassioned blog about men, dating and relationships:
“You just start dating a guy. He likes you, you like him. You guys want to spend every second together. When you are not with him you are talking to him on the phone. You have deep feelings for him. The feelings keep developing. They keep growing. You begin to think this could be it. You begin to think I really think this is it for me….. You love being together. You can’t stand being without each other. You start to feel like you have never felt before, and you do things for him you have never done before. He tells you he doesn’t want to be with you and only you. He tells you he adores you. He tells you u guys were meant for each other. You care for him. You are falling for him. You take things slow. You don’t want to make any mistakes. You go slower with him than you have ever done before. You don’t rush to introduce him to your friends, let alone anyone else. You want it to be right. You are feeling this and you feel this could mean something. He communicates with you. He thanks God you are in his life. You guys have fun together. You laugh together. He talks about being and becoming serious with you. He talks about his desire to love you one day. He talks about he can’t imagine not being with you. You think he’s falling in love with you. But you can’t be 100% sure. You guys have not said that sacred 4 letter word that starts with an “L”. But you feel it deep deep in you. Deeper than you have in a long time.
Weeks turns into months and you slowly start to wean the other guys in your life out. And than it happens. No not the “L” word. But what you have been most afraid of. What deep in your heart you have been afraid to confront. What you always suspected would happen one day sooner or later. HE STOPS CALLING. You panic. But you try to stay calm. He did this before when you first started talking, but u tried to forget it. You knew u should have not forgotten. But u tried to ignore it. He disappears for a week with no phone call. No answer to yours no nothing. Finally you hear from him. You want to rage you want to scream you want to cry. But you can’t help you heart from feeling a tad bit happy.”
My Dear Sister Serena,
YIKES! Keep loving like you’ve never been hurt, lovey dovey. Life is beautiful and so are you, as well as eternally MULTI talented!!! (And confidentially, don’t look now, but your hoo-has are showing through your shirt…)
