Captain Jack Sparrow

Ever since I was a kid, I've had a thing for rebelious men. Biker boys were my absolute favorite. Growing up I had a weakness for musicians. Drummers being my favorite, yet I also dated guitar, bass and keyboard players. Maybe I had a thing for the misunderstood, the outcasts and the thinkers.

Three years ago, I saw on the big screen my perfect match. Captain Jack Sparrow. Charming, witty, that would do anything and even be capable of betraying just to get what he wants. The fact that he's cute adds cookie points.

Today I saw the Captain again. Just as charming, just as descieving. Suddenly I realize that even though I would love to have a passionate love affair with dear old Jack, I would rather come home every night to someone like Will Turner.

Yeah, I'm becoming a softie. I want a guy that I can go home to and be with him. You know, just snuggle, watch a good movie or simply talk to. Someone that would be willing to do almost anything to keep me safe.

I realize I possibly messed up comparing you to the Captain; even though you are just as charming. Fortunately for me, you're also the kind of guy I would love to go home to.

Real life is MUCH better than cinema.
I get to have the adventurous Captain and brave Will in one person.
Yes, you all can hate me now.
