I’m going to go ahead and give you a strong hint to what tomorrow’s post topic will be when I say this… but I felt the order of longings was relevant here as we explore what we, as girls, need from our men. Somewhere between romance and a husband, a woman needs to know commitment….

Romance {longings of a girl’s heart}

Ardent, passionate, fervent. Displaying or expressing love or strong affection. A preoccupation with or idealizing of one’s beloved.

Beauty {longings of a girl’s heart}

I’m taking a deep breath as I approach this particular longing, because it’s an intimidating one. Beauty is such a sensitive subject.

To Be Loved {longings of a girl’s heart}

It seems like we should begin here, with love, because it is one of the greatest and most central needs, of not just women, but humanity as a whole. The need for love is a basic, raw need we all have. And I’m not just talking about romantic love, although that’s certainly part of it. Speaking…
