The longing of a woman's heart is to be wanted. "She wants to be more than noticed---she wants to be wanted."
She wants to be number one to somebody.
She's probably not going to tell you but she would love to be wanted by George Clooney.
But since that's not going to happen---and she knows it, she will wake up from her dream loving to be wanted by someone who really does want her.
Women want to be pursued, fought for---yes, but they also want to be part of the adventure.
She wants to be caught up in something greater than herself.
She wants to be wanted in every way one can be wanted!
I like the way John Eldredge describes the dream of a woman's heart of the knight in shining armor who comes to rescue her. He goes on to say:
So Zach comes back for Paula in An Officer and a Gentleman,
Frederick comes back for Jo in Little Women,
and Edward returns to pledge his undying love for
Eleanor in Sense and Sensibility.
It's true Charlotte, I'm no knight in shining armor and maybe our life hasn't been a great adventure, but know this:
