*My dh and I were friends at first…although, he said he knew he’d marry me the first night we met. :rolleyes: :shrug: When our friendship morphed into ‘‘something more,’’ we were very much in love, almost instantaneously…butterflies kind of love. Not the intense commited love I have for him, now. That kind of love…the love that causes you to trust this person with your very life, is a love that takes time to grow. I don’t know if two strangers dating for a few weeks, could know that, really. I didn’t. I wasn’t a trusting person, though…but my husband helped me to trust. But, in the beginning, I think for many, there is that feeling of ‘being in love,’ not necessarily the kind of love that takes time to come into.
The reason I believe God puts you on a path to finding that ‘‘right’’ person He made for you, is that He often puts you with someone who will help you to grow. I think my husband and I do that for each other. He is a very analytical type man (oh my gosh, too much so! lol) and I’m the opposite…I’m nurturing, sensitive, emotional, etc…he needed some of what I had, and I needed some of what he had.
He told me the other day that he is ‘‘madly in love with me,’’ moreso than when we dated. Coming from a very analytical man, that is HUGE. :love: I’d say the same, I really **really *love him, and feel very sad at the thought of him dying or not being here in my life. I think for me, that is how I know I’m madly in love, because I’m a very independent woman, and never WANTED to need a man, but I do need him. :o I’d like to think he needs me, too.
