A sense of humor often seems to be one of the most important elements of a romantic relationship. So often, when someone is asked why they love their partner, they will reply with a shrug, and just say "He makes me laugh." That's all that is needed for the romantic floodgates to open.
It's very easy to figure out whether a girl has gotten emotionally attached to a guy. As women, we tend to wear our hearts on our sleeves and pride ourselves on being open books. Men, on the other hand, tend to try to hide their feelings for as long as they can.

Do you remember your first...
I left the house at dusk and watched the bugs hover in the thick mist, illuminated like stars. Sam met me where my dad's bike was chained to a stop sign near the edge of the woods and we walked hand in hand on the old trail. An evening breeze picked its way through tahe overgrown weeds and tossed wet, summer leaves over our muddy feet and between our bodies that brushed against each other as we avoided fallen trees and dark puddles.
A few years ago, I was friended by one Amber Guesa on Facebook. She runs a social dating site called SingleAndTheCity. I looked at the pictures on her page, and I was quite intrigued. But I never raised enough impetus to actually elevate my aspirations and attend one of her parties. Grounded to yet another boring weekend in Westchester, Amber personally invited me to an event that I could not be persuaded to miss.
Moving in with your romantic partner is a major relationship milestone these days, and it's one that most people assume will lead to marriage. And, as most people can tell you, it's a serious test to your relationship. After all, if you can't stand each other after a month together, you probably shouldn't marry.
Relationships for whatever reason tend to be a difficult subject matter for men. Maybe it's society's stigma on men emoting and feeling out their personalities that keep an entire gender from exploring the intimate elements of the relationship. Maybe these problems are not specifically male issues, but issues people have with relationships in general.
Most of us have been in at least one relationship that wasn't healthy for us. It could have been an emotionally abusive relationship between you and a family member, a toxic boyfriend, or a relationship with a moocher. During those relationships, you may have noticed how hard it is to justify staying around that individual.
April 16, 2010, the winds blew cold and I couldn't settle down. It was so unlike me. It was a Saturday night about 10pm and yet I couldn't sleep. So, I got up and got dressed. I walked up to the bar about three blocks away. There he was. My future husband. I cold called my Mother and told her I was staring at my husband. She asked his name. I didn't know. I hadn't met him yet. I was observing him. His gestures. His smile. His eyes. How relaxed he seemed with his friends. A friend, I recognized. Dane. I couldn't remember his last name but it didn't matter. Dane was going to introduce me to my forever.
I've always wondered what I have done to deserve him. Changkyun, I must have put a magical potion on him when he confessed right? It was a sweet and sincere confession, right outside my house when I was about to go in. We've been friends for a while and I never thought it could happen.
