I love

I always figured it would take me a long time to fall in love, in love. I've perhaps been close here or there, but mostly I just felt like I never had enough of a chance with people. And that I was probably just difficult to love and generally distrustful of people's feelings for me. Mostly I know how to care about someone who doesnt care back. But dating Brian was just so easy in the beginning. We just fit together. It only took a couple of weeks for me to begin to think that maybe I loved this man. And then one day, I felt as if the words would suffocate me if I tried to choke them down any longer. So with some trepidation I stuttered out "I think I'm a little in love with you." 
I believe that you could end up with many different people and make it work and be happy. Its all about the choices you make. And how much effort you're willing to put into a relationship.
Bri can drive me mental sometimes. 
But he can be funny, and patient, and understanding, and kind too.

And I love many things about him...
I love:

The way he suppresses a laugh when he finds something I say ridiculous - like he can't decide if its the cutest or silliest thing he's ever heard
That he manages any errant emotions I show like a champ
The way he gets annoyed by how many photos I take, but still buys me a camera accessory because he knows how much I like photos
That he can cook and gets braggy about how good he is at it
The way he'll anxiously tap my leg if its a close game he's watching
That even when we disagree I never feel like I can't tell him how I really feel
The way he plays with the fingers on my hand
That I can tell that he tries to make our relationship better
That he likes and believes in working out
The way he cuddles my leg when we're watching TV
That he's a guys guy and has won my brothers approvals
That it feels like we've been dating for ages, even though its only been just under five months
That he is honestly exactly the kind of guy I always thought I would date.
