Because sometimes you wake up, turn to that gorgeous being sleeping beside you, and you say:
I want to be with you. For good. I’ve wanted to be with you for a long time. I don’t want anyone else. I don’t want to try to make life work with anyone else. YOU are worth the effort. I love you. YOU. So let’s just do it because life is too short to fuck around.
Or you say something pretty similar to it. And the other person is like, Are you kidding me? Hell yes!
You call some people and share the news. Then everyone fixes their hair and dances around in their undies to 80’s music. Or maybe just some people do.

Then you do it and you don’t look back. You give your heart. You give your soul. You give yourself. You know it won’t always be easy, but you know that this person standing beside you is the one worth fighting for. They light a fire within you and make you want to be a better person. They have since the moment you met them and the feeling grows as time passes.
They just get you.
