How do you know it's love?

by honeybear7 on December 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've been happily single for a year and honestly I wasn't out pounding the streets looking for any type of relationship. I had been burned pretty bad and just didn't need someone in my life. I ran across a beautiful lady and tried to recruit her to work at my company. Normally I give only the info to the person that can hire but for some reason I added my # onto this paper. I can't explain why I did that because I have never done it before. We eventually ended up going out and she had to break the ice and be the one that made it clear that she wanted more. As it stands now I feel so many feelings for her. I think about her constantly and I love everything about her. I haven't felt this way in years. It's weird how we feel like an old married couple but we are so comfortable with each other and it feels like we've been together for years. Have you ever felt this way?
