we might be right for each other (if we ever meet)

sometimes, i mean, just sometimes, you meet someone or find out about the books he read or the music he listens to (radiohead, nick drake, joni mitchell, pearl jam, belle & sebastian, beulah, paolo nutini.....) or see the kind of photographs on the wall of her room or even her flickr page, and you start to think that you might be made for each other, like maybe she could be the right person for you.

you sense some sort of similarity.

like the two of you might share an awkwardly similar world.

anyway, that's how monique lee's photographs make me feel, like maybe i could have taken them myself, or - less pompously - i had seen these photographs before, somewhere inside me.

but we might never meet at all in this lifetime, so what does it matter?

oh gosh i've felt this way so many times. perhaps too often with people i don't even interact with...I pre-empt that we will share a certain commonality but never push myself to pursue it...
I liked this post - thank-you!

vy says: same here. i am a pretty passive person, so even if i wanna get to know the person better, i still wouldnt really do anything. i wish i could change that. haha

i know how that feels.. i have felt that a million times so much that i have conceded that for me, they're really crushes more than true love ha ha..
