I Love You?
If your relationship was absent of those three little words, how would you feel?
Are those words when a relationship really starts, or a nice addition to an already great relationship?
Is it more important to hear that phrase, than to be treated with love?
Billosaurus Rex and I have been in a relationship for almost 18 months. I have been happier in these quick months than I ever was in the previous 6 years with my ex.
Yet, those 'I Love You' words have been elusive. At first I was too scared to even think about them- my previous relationship was catastrophic and I didnt think Id ever feel that way again. And then...I started to.
Initially, I was indignant that I would not say them first. (Ridiculous, in hindsight.)
The words danced on my lips every kiss, every laugh, and every smile we were together.
And then this NYE they finally tumbled out (when I was drunk no less.)
In return, the man who I love so dearly, replied with....nothing.
Not a word.
And so my followers: What would you do? Wait patiently for them to be returned? Abandon ship?
