What Is Love?
During a normal conversation with my best friend about boys and stuff she asked "How do we ever know what love is?" and it got me thinking, so much so that today's scheduled blog post has been put on hold.
The saying "you know when you've found the one" used to annoy me because I never believed it was possible but I can whole heartedly say you do know ladies! Love, to me, is the feeling of being completely relaxed, comfortable and safe in every way around him. Being able to mess around and be ridiculously silly with each other without thinking the other person is weird. Cuddling up every night, sharing everything, talking about your day and having no secrets, being able to fully trust the person you are with. Those special moments when you can turn around at the most random points of the day just to tell them how much you love them, how amazing you think they are or how much they mean to you because I don't think anyone can get bored of hearing that from their partner, I know I don't. When you spend every day with someone that the thought of being apart is the worst feeling. The little things like nicknames and inside jokes. Even the fights that happen, get resolved and are never spoken about again. Thinking or talking about the future, knowing that you want them to play a strong part in it, still being together, still being as in love as you were in the first few months. Starting the day with "I love you" and ending the night with "I love you." Looking at him and knowing he is the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. Since being in the relationship I am in I can tell that there is so much more than just a spark, it is definitely love and there is nothing better.
What is love to you?
