Date a girl who draws. Date a girl who spends her money on art supplies instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many art stuffs. Date a girl who has a list of things she wants to draw, who has had her own collections and a little sketch book since she was 4.
Find a girl who draws. You’ll know that she does because she will always have a pencil and some papers in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over all the drawings in the art galleries, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the inspirations for her drawings. You see the weird chick spending hours just to draw something unknown and freak? That’s the drawer. They can never resist smelling the papers and the stinky colors.
She’s the girl drawing while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her cup, the coffee would always be half with the water on top. Lost in a world of imaginations. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who draw do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes to draw something new.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Van Goth. Listen to what she says about her feelings for the Sunflower in the vase. Understand that if she says she likes Picasso she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Monalisa or she would like to be Monalisa.
It’s easy to date a girl who draws. Give her art books or art supplies for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of arts, in paintings, in sculptures. Let her know that you understand : arts are love. Understand that she knows the difference between drawings and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite paintings. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands the beauty of art, she will understand your need to lie. Behind the beauty are other things: the hidden secret, the psycho side , the weirdness and the art of lying. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who draws knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that art is unknown. That your imagination has no limit. That you can draw everything in the way you want. That life is meant to have the beauty even in the bad side.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who draw understand that people, like paintings, take time for people to realize their own beauty.
If you find a girl who draws, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM soiling your desk with all the things in her color box, make her a cup of milk and kiss on her forehead. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if you can see the beauty in her paintings immediately, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose inside an art museum. Or during a journey. Or very casually next time she’s sick. By email.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will picture the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Spanish bull and the ladies on the field, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will always whisper to you that your love story is a work of art.
Date a girl who draws because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who draws.
