and that would be a Gilbert Blythe.
Because it's having someone...
who is your best friend.
who gives you a little competition.
who inspires you to be your best.
who might make fun of you a little.
who gives you a little wink.
who jokes with you.
who puts up with your romantic ideas.
who lets you think you are winning.
who is real.
Who could say no to that?
