Whenever you’re around him, you suddenly feel inarticulate, and spend much of your time smiling at the ground.
With the onslaught of digital communication and social media, getting to know someone has only proven to be more and more difficult.

You lover with a Grand Canyon of possibility.
There is so much space in you.
That’s a good thing.
