Here is the story on what are some of the best ways to express I love you without actually saying it.
My girlfriend and I have been dating for almost two years now.
Believe me when I tell you – The first time either of us said the three different words – It was well over a year.
So we’ve had a most unconventional relationship.
We started with sex after months of drinking together. I taught her to smoke. I taught her to drink actually.
As our friendship grew, we realized we were both hanging on to each other because everything up until that point had been shit.
The past haunted us both, and I was drinking every day to numb my emotions, and she was just getting over a bad breakup.
We NEEDED each other to hold onto something real.
One day all our friends got together and decided to plan this trip to this place called Alibaug.
Here in the middle of the journey – as much fun as we were having – she decided to leave.
It was very very abrupt.
When she was on her way back, she dropped me this message.
Hey, Aiti. One of the main reasons I left was because it is becoming tough to be around you.
I don’t know why it’s so awkward to be around you. So I left.
I am sorry it has to be this way, but that’s the truth.
Have a lot of fun in Alibaug. I’ll see you once you’re back in Pune.
That day when I received the message – I knew.
It would be another one year before one of us said it.
See the point is when you love someone they’ll know.
Love is probably one of the only things in life that doesn’t need constant validation.
Believe me as open as we are today about saying I Love You – The Aiti and Al of two years back would judge us quite a lot.
