It Was Here The Whole Time...

We have been friends for eight years.
We have been lovers for eight months.

As the days, weeks and months have gone by that we've been together as a couple, our connection has grown and strengthened.

Don't look for it...
...but recognize it.

The best partner you can have is your best friend.

Some of the truest words ever spoken :)

My honey was just a friend and not my "type" but one day I opened my eyes.<br />
I am thankful such a gift.

It's amazing what happens when we open our eyes.

yeah I'm in love with my best friend... but I'm married and she is seperated and entangled with someone else... maybe it'll happen... in the meantime I think I'll work at finding some new best friends... love it that you've got it..

Thank you...and best of luck to you.

Everytime I see this, it makes me really, really happy for you. The connection with the right person is a wonderful journey. My wife and I have been married for 21 years, and our connection and love just grows each day. Even when there are tough days, as all relationships have, you just have to work through them and you will come out on the other side stronger -- together.

Thank you! I'm sure I must sound like a broken record in different groups talking about him and our relationship the way I do. Things come to me and I write them. I'm so happy for you and your wife. My parents have been a good example for me.

Not a broken record at all. I like the fact that you found that special person and are so happy that I keep coming back to the story to read it. I know ... I'm strange that way, but I like to re-read things I like.
