Today I will write about my girlfriend. This began a long time ago when she asked me write something about her in my blog. I thought it was a joke although she always denied it. Even now I still consider that request a joke but her birthday is coming, so I decide to write anyway.
We have been together for nearly three years. That’s a long time to me. Many things have happened in our relationship and also in our lives. We even live apart at the moment but I hope that we will reunite sooner rather than later. I want to start by talking about what I have learned from her and our relationship.
First thing, I learned what love is. Another thing I learned: a couple can be in a relationship, without love. Love and relationship can exist independently. In fact, most relationships happen without love in the first place and/or love never has chance to develop.
The issue above leads to another aspect of love: the lovers should also be best friends. At least, that’s what I believe. I am not a love expert, or I have been in many relationships but I believe love should be built from friendship. And I think ‘soulmate’ is a better term for ‘lover’. My girlfriend and I are definitely best friends. She’s my best friend. We can talk to each other for hours, we understand each other, we know our weaknesses, our hobbies, our passions, and above all we know that we love each other.
There is one another aspect of love but I do not want to discuss it here. It is a little bit too sensitive 🙂
Let me instead share about one thing that I like about my girlfriend. When we first met, I know she was different from other girls. She appeared to be well-behaved and generally had a good manner. What struck me was I found her actions very natural. In other words, she was genuine. I hate that some people trying to act differently when they socialize. It’s never bad to be polite but you should be a polite person in general, not only in public. That was how she attracted me, three years ago.
I hope that this post will make at least one person happy.
