I know that many of us have or have had a caretaker. We love them and would be lost without them in our little lives.
However, if you're anything like me, and you're currently in between CTs, or have yet to experience the magic or the current arrangement simply isn't cutting it, you look around. By that I mean you start to analyze, survey if you will, who in your life might successfully fulfill your need for 'guardianship'.
So, who would be on your list? They don't have to know about that side of you and I'm mostly thinking of friends, or even family members, not so much celebrities, as a recent thread covered. Think of those who you know, but you could never bring yourself to tell and who likely would never take part.
As for me, I have a couple of wonderful neighbors across the street. The couple are both grandparents, and the wife is so sweet and kind. Always gentle, softspoken, and always says hello and wants to know how my wife and I are doing and so forth. She's always baking something wonderful and always greets guests with her apron on, covered in flour. I just want to run up and hug her!
Not trying to be creepy at all. I'm not saying to stalk people! Just those who you know who seem to make you feel safe and secure naturally in the way we all seek.
