Love has made me so much stronger.
I met him at work. I thought nothing of him except maybe the occasional "Hm, he's so cute when he does that", things like that..I had no idea that it would all change so rapidly.
Well, I was having relationship problems and he was trying to help, as he was already a good friend. I began to care about him more and more, and the relationship he was trying to help diminished. Over a period of a few months, we became extremely close. And one night, while talking on the phone, I knew that he knew that I liked him, but I tried to act like I didn't. I told him he was presumptuous, which we still joke about now even. After that night, everything changed.
We ended up getting into a serious relationship short after that. Before him, I honestly never felt the extreme feelings I have for anyone before. It was intoxicating how much I loved him. He would always be on my mind, always making me smile just by thinking about him. I would spend my day thinking of how proud he would be of me for getting the work I had to do done and becoming a much better person.
Before our friendship, I was not a good person. I smoked, did drugs, had casual sex..I honestly didn't care and knew no one else cared about me. But he helped me quit smoking and made me realize that I'm not just another person, that I'm something special to a lot of people.
But, what I am trying to get at with this story is that I discovered love in the strangest way. I made love with him. I fell in love with him, I became one, yet still independent with him. I am in pure felicity, pure bliss. I wouldn't trade the world for this.
