Plug in whatever gender you prefer. Love doesn’t care.

  • It’s not just how you feel about him. It’s about how he makes you feel about
    yourself.
  • It’s not about losing yourself in him. It’s about becoming true to yourself with him.
  • It’s not about how great he is. It’s about how great you can become alongside him.
  • It’s not about how much you love him. It’s about how much he helps you love yourself.
  • It’s not about his finding room in his heart for you. It’s about his finding room in his life for your energy, drive, ambition, passions and interests.
  • It’s not just about how good he is deep down. It’s about how you experience his goodness as you live your life together.
  • It’s not about how he makes you hungry to be with him. It’s about how much he makes you feel
    at home when you are with him.
  • It’s not about the love you share. It’s about your ability to fully, equally, deeply share your life together.
  • It’s about falling in like.
