So romantic.

Michaelyn sent me this message this morning.

You’re not my soulmate.
You don’t complete me.
But you make me really happy and I love having you in my life.

That made me very, very happy.  I don’t want someone to need me in order to be happy.  I don’t want them to have to fear the day when they might lose me (though it’s kind of endearing to know when she misses me).  I don’t need someone to think I’m the best person in the world.

But to know that I make them happy, and that they want to make me happy…that’s enough.  Hell, it’s all I could ever want.

    Good for the two of you! Been married for 8 years this week, and one of the reasons it works is that we love each other, but we don’t put ridiculous levels of pressure to be the entire world for each other. A good balance of closeness and space makes for a healthier, happier relationship.
