is a phrase that annoys me so much. I love love, and the idea of it, and the actuality of it, and how it will make people do crazy things, like die for someone. It's awesome, and special, and NOT EASILY ATTAINED. 
It's a pet peeve. I know I sound like a jerk. 

I think you're in love when you know the sound of your person's sigh better then your own. When just holding hands is enough. When you know what makes them cry late at night. What they're biggest insecurity is. What smells trigger which memories. When your heart is no longer in your chest because you've given it so completely to them. When you don't have to worry how you look around them. When you can trust them with anything, and you have. It's when you love them enough to have huge fights and yell and throw things, just so you can work through your issues. It's loving them through resentment. It's work. Love is deep and passionate and truly amazing. There is a big difference between being in love and crushing on someone...just saying. 

I've been in like. I've been in lust. I've loved the idea of a person. I've crushed hard and long. And I've thought I've been in love, and on some level, I was. But at the end of the day I knew the relationship would never work, so I couldn't love them completely, because I knew they would leave. That we wouldn't have forever, because they weren't meant to be a part of my forever, not in the role I had placed them in.
