25+ Heartwarming Illustrations That Will Remind You What Love Really Is

1139

If you’re a single lady, there’s a chance that you may dream of the perfect guy who
would show up at your doorstep on the Christmas eve and declare his love for you with a
series of messages on large note cards. Slightly creepy but fair enough.

Let’s suppose such a guy does show up. Let’s suppose you move in together. Let’s suppose grand romantic gestures last for a few more months. But then his habit of leaving his socks on the floor start to annoy you. He burns food more often than he doesn’t and you seriously had enough of Top Gear. What do you do now? You learn to embrace it.

Because, let’s face it, you’re not perfect either and it’s fine. You’re fine. He’s fine. You don’t always need to be swept away by romantic dinners or dozens of roses. It’s the little details that matter. It’s hugging each other while sleeping. It’s when you have those long¬†talks about everything and anything. It’s being there for each other during the hardest of times. If you have such a guy or girl by your side, you can definitely
deal with a few scattered socks.
