Some people are good at
being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very
different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part
— s.ex all the time, midday
naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long
conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation
anxiety… Just the best sides of both people, you know?
But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts
to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies
disappear, the s.ex becomes a chore, the
tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness… The
worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person
by your side through all of those things… that’s
when you know — that’s when you know you’re
good at love.
