How I Knew

A common question is how do you know when you're in love. I've been really inspired to write lately. I've just been too tired to get it all out. Here's how I knew....

i knew it was love w/the bf when i couldn't imagine my life w/o him. and when i realized he was my best friend and if i married someone else i wouldn't be able to have the same relationship with him. and when i compared every other man with him. and when i wished every man i was with WAS him. and when no girl was ever good enough for him. certainly not as good as i could be. so i stopped fighting it.

If you asked for the chili recipe, scroll down. Its below.

damn girlie.

that was real. i've asked myself that question too because i thought i was in love a few times. and i do believe that i loved them, and still care about them in a way, but i didnt love any of them like that... if i really did love them all. That's some shit I'm still defining for myself.

I know I am still trying to define what I believe it is to be in love. I think I am starting to understand just a little bit what it is.

words to live by.
I hear people (burnt and skeptical friends of mine who talk to little boys...) say being in love and getting married is all about finding the perfect roommate who's of the opposite sex. word?
Its not abt finding the person you can live with, its abt finding the person you can't live without.

i knew when i started crying. i'm sure i'll write about it one day. great answer. people who dont consider their partner their best friend should really think about it. if we cant hang out, we cant be together.

dp... you are such a hater. lolol

jenn... its amazing what its like when you start out as friends.

epsi... it takes time and a lot of patience. I corinthians 13 is amazing too.

stace... perfect roommate of the opposite sex?????? that's appalling. that's part of the reason why marriages fail so much. people don't know what they're supposed be about. and you're absolutely right. finding the person you can't live without. i'm beaming right now.

joy... awwww! details! best friend love is fabulous.

CNEL said...

That was sweet.

It's good to know that you care about love and nurturing a positive relationship, and that you haven't settled but instead found what you deserve.

when I SERIOUSLY start thinking about having kids with a woman and I'm picking out names with her...that's when i'm in love.

Aw tear for this. I don't even know you and the bf and you're still 1 of my favorite couples. LOL

This post moved me a lot - I sat down one day and thought about how I knew I was in love, and my definition was similar to yours. I knew I was in love with my best friend when I realized that my worst day with him was better than my best day with anyone else. Even though we aren't together anymore, I still find myself comparing EVERYONE else to the standard that he set and they all fall short. Hmm... wonder what that should tell me?
