10. Love is a quiet trust; it is affection built out of familiarity.
“I thought I was in love a lot, growing up. I’d feel in love with people after talking to them for a day. I fell in love with everybody; I loved every girl I met and half the boys.
But as I got older, and got hurt, and hurt people, I realized that love isn’t that tingly feeling, or acting like an idiot, or wanting to be around someone all the time.
Love is a quiet trust; it is affection built out of familiarity. Love is really, really, really knowing someone—and wanting a life that has them in it, not because of what they can do, but because of what they are.”
11. You know you are in love when you will help them poop.
“I was the ‘other man’ for a while.
A girl I worked with was flirting pretty heavily with me and we went out, things were going pretty well until she told me she had a boyfriend.
I didn’t wanna be that guy so I said we couldn’t see each other, she goes on to explain how they are gonna breakup and he’s not good to her and all this.
Temptation gave in and we kept dating for a while until one day she tells me about how she had a bad night
Apparently she has this condition where it is really hard for her to poop and it causes her a lot of pain, the boyfriend helped her by pushing on her stomach while she pooped and it made her feel better somehow
I was like whoa that boy loves you, I wouldn’t do that shit. I mean like I’d ask from the other side of the door if you needed anything from the pharmacy but I’d never push on your stomach while you pooped all of a sudden it got real to me that he loved her and I was an ass for being the other man
TLDR: You know you are in love when you will help them poop.”
12. You know you are in love when you can no longer imagine living your life without this person.
“I asked my dad this when I was dating my first girlfriend. She turned out to be a bitch who jerked me around for months on end, but the advice stayed relevant:
‘You know you are in love when you can no longer imagine living your life without this person, and the idea of spending the rest of it with them is inviting, not terrifying.’”
