What Do We Really Want? These People Will Make You Realize All We Really Need Is Love – if We Just Recognized It.

Most of us want human connection, and we’re always looking and hoping for someone, be it a best friend or a romantic partner or a buddy at work or a lifelong soul mate. SoulPancake sat down with eight singles to ask just what it was that they wanted. You’ll be surprised how much everyone really wants love.

There’s nothing wrong with being single – the apostle Paul even writes of it as a gift! – but let’s face it: most of us want human connection, and we’re always looking and hoping for someone, be it a best friend or a romantic partner or a buddy at work or a lifelong soul mate. SoulPancake sat down with eight singles to ask just how it was that they wanted and to find out just what made the life of a relationship so much more desirable. As it turns out, as pessimistic as we can be about the world – thinking others just want sex or arm candy or money – all the participants wanted the same things: companionship, honesty, a friend, and someone to “grab Pancakes at IHOP at 2am just because.” There are so many people in our lives who have those qualities that we just don’t act on, perhaps out of fear, perhaps for something else. But it helps to confess. Don’t take our word for it – see the amazing promise of love and the connections we pass by everyday in the clip below.
