I thought I met my first love awhile ago. Now I'm with the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. And I'm just thinking to myself, "what I had before wasn't love. Just strong liking." How do you know when it's love? How do you define love? I define it as a strong connection with someone that never fades away.

I knew it because it had never happened before, I spent years never forming strong connections with men. And then he came along and I wanted nothing more than him. And I formed a bond with him that hasn't faded. It's changed, but I still feel like our stories will always be connected.
In essence it's the bond. I feel like a part of me is forever with him and there's a click when you love someone and in a way they become a part of you.4
