How the scales do fall away when you admit to being in love. I prefer the old way when I was afraid to tell them and saw them as Prince Charming.
The truth is, I see him. I recognise the street he lives on. I've lived there for years myself. I love that about him. Kindred spirit.
But what does that mean really?
LB says some men are just not good at getting in touch with or talking about their feelings.
Or is he just coming out of his cave like I was last year with gardener?
Is he just as scared and gormless at this as I am?
He's just like me. I see him. That's what falling in love is. Seeing the person, really through and through. Mirror mirror. The warrior, the child, the insecurity, the sweetness of a gentle man who's just confused as fuck and terrified of making a mistake and being rejected.
So I cut him some slack.
But I don't reply.
There's nothing to say really.
