Dear 100 Hour Board,
For those of you who are in love, how can you tell? How does it feel?
-My Name Here
Being in love feels like constant butterflies and happiness, and he entertains me endlessly and there's never a dull moment when the two of us are together because life is just so great.
Haha just kidding.
It's definitely not like that all the time (although it is sometimes), but it is feeling happy and secure together. Like that President Hinckley quote says, it's genuinely being interested in and caring for the other person.
Plus sometimes it's waking up to him saying, "Wakey wakey, eggs and bakey!" because he made me the best bacon and omelettes for breakfast.
When I talk to him, my face hurts from smiling so much.
She can turn an awful day completely around. Sometimes I tear up when she smiles at me/I talk about her/think about her/generally I'm so happy that I get emotional. (Which is probably kind of specific to me because I'm so dang emotional) I want to share everything good I come across with her. Also obviously not everything is great, but no matter what is going on, I always feel comfortable and understood around her. I really feel like we understand each other.
Plus, we play Geoguessr together.
Keep it real,
I like what Alta says about happiness and security. Plus, sometimes I can just look at him and my heart is all full. Also, I'm sick and he left me ALL the leftover pizza.
How can I tell? Well, I feel like my life is pretty fulfilling, and I don't even feel bad when I try to ask a girl out and she blows me off, so there's that.
We were going to go for a walk during my break from work, but I was going to stop by a vending machine so I could get a Cosmic Brownie (they're terrible for me but they're cheap and amazing). He stopped, asked me if this was what I was going to get, and handed me a Cosmic Brownie. To quote this iconic song, "if that's not love, then what is?"
