My boyfriend and I had been dating a couple months when I went with him to a family dinner in another city. After dinner, we were in the living room with his two brothers sitting on the couch. He was looking at me, and I asked him what he was thinking. He looked up at me and simply said, “You are in the category of people I love.” At that moment no one else was in the room and nothing else mattered.
Postscript: A year later we are still together, and though we are young we know we will make it.
