I have firm ideas about what love is, but expressing that in words is another story. When I met my boyfriend, I just knew...not that I was in love with him, but that love could one day be shared between the two of us. I knew that his personality could complement mine and that our interests overlapped in many ways, and he is easygoing enough to let me freak out, settle down, then talk rationally.
We don't have to do anything to feel that the other is there and know that we are in sync. That's all I really need.
