I miss my boyfriend very much. He balances me. He comforts me. He is the person I need in my life. He is not perfect, but he is still the perfect person for me. I cannot imagine a better match. Sometimes you have that one person whom you know you need more than anyone else.
Anyway, I read this little article “11 Gross Signs You’ve Reached Peak Comfort Levels in Your Relationship,” and I was reminded of my precious relationship with my person. Funny gross stuff aside, over the past three years, he has seen me at my absolute worst and most disgusting. I mean, he helped me walk to the bathroom every five minutes when I went septic from an effing urinary tract infection. He still thinks I’m attractive after seeing me in a hospital gown, with oxygen tubes in my nose, having gone a week without showering. I wouldn’t even look at myself in the mirror at that point.
But really I just wanted to share the last part of the article because of how perfectly accurate it is:
“Ten minutes ago, your boyfriend literally Dutch-ovened you with his farts, and now your bra is off and you’re ready to pounce him. How is this possible?
This truly must be what love is.”
