Many years ago, the era of dating was defined with love letters, flowers, and dinner dates. They were often followed in suit with the beau of your choice asking your parent's permission to take you out. However, as technology became a bigger part of our society relationships became more complicated. People catfish, people lie, and people deceive each other regularly. Although there are the people who do those kinds of things, there are those out there with an old soul, only modernized.
A modern old soul to me is someone who still has the respect of the time periods before, only they have fit them into a modern time setting. Before you confuse it, I'm not talking about a potential hookup, I'm talking about the fact that actual feelings are there when you both talk. This person has immense respect for you and tells you the truth 100% of the time, just like you give them. They also have a true desire to meet your family; and I'm not just talking about the siblings and parents either. They want to meet your cousins, your aunts, your uncles, and even your grandparents. As for you? You want to meet their family as well. This person respects any boundaries you have and they will not go beyond those unless you feel ready, just as you respect theirs. They make sure to always be there when you need them for absolutely anything, and you are there for them. Most importantly, this person shares the same values and beliefs as you do on all standpoints. Anything they do for you, you'd do for them and respect is of highest levels known. They love you for you, not for what you could be or what you were, and you love them just the way they are as well.
When you find your modern old soul, you hold on to them and you never dream of letting go. Finding love in this cruel world is tough, but when you find it?
I guarantee you, it's the purest thing in the world.~
