As others have said below, this is the first piece of writing on Medium with which I agree completely…
…and I do so because you’ve just described my marriage. I’m one of the stupidly, insanely lucky ones who has found true love. We just passed our 26th anniversary a couple months back and we’re still newlyweds. She’s my wife, my lover, my very bestest friend, and my long ago wish come true (not kidding!). I’m a dedicated introvert, and she’s also the only person I’ve ever known that I really enjoy hanging out with. I hate small talk…but I enjoy hers.
I love her. It’s true love, and it’s the realest thing I know. And the thing about true love is that we so desperately want everyone else to have what we have, for the world would be a much happier place.
So your article stands alone in that I agree with it in its entirety. Hopefully, some of those who read it will realize that there really is such a thing as true love. You just provided for them a concise list of ingredients.
