It’s not a dumb question, but it’s kind of a hard one to answer.
Love is one of those things that people are always trying to explain and a lot of times it comes out all poetic and seems like it’s meaningful, but really when you break it down they’re basically just saying “Idk, it’s pretty nice and makes me feel all goopy inside”.
The thing is, there are different types and degrees of love, and what one person considers being in love might not be what another person considers being in love. For me, it’s like the best friendship I’ve ever had. Nicki and I are always together unless one or both of us is at work, and even then we text each other constantly. Meeting her was like meeting a part of my brain that I didn’t realize was missing. She fills a space in my life that no one else can. I think, really, that’s what love should be like. Too many people assume that it’s supposed to be passionate and all-consuming and shit, like you read in books, but in my personal experience, the relationships that tend to last are the ones that are quiet and comfortable and companionable.
Which is not to say that it’s easy. Love is hard and it’s something that you have to really work at. There’s no person that’s going to just easily slot into your life and bend to your wishes and agree with you all the time. You have to compromise and cooperate, and sometimes you’ll have goals that you can both work towards, and sometimes you’ll have separate goals and you’ll have to support each other. Sometimes you get to be selfish, but sometimes they get to be selfish, too, and you have to accept that even though you’re in love, you won’t always agree with each other. There are a lot of adult conversations involved in making love work, where you have to sit down and talk rationally instead of screaming and calling names like you might want to.
I don’t know if that even begins to explain anything, but that’s the best I can do. :/ Hope it helps!!
