Jonathan's in love
Remember that feeling? I do. Giddiness. A little fear that it could be interupted. Near inability to see any imperfection.
I don't know how old Jon is, but he's a good deal younger than me. I'm in love with my wife, and am damned happy with my situation, but that powerful new recognition of new love is a special memory.
With all the hate, and judgement, and anger, and fear, and worry, and proprietary jealousy in the world, it's nice to see this declaration of love by a young man.
Jonathan, I hope it works out for you. Why shouldn't it? If you remember that Love is something that you do, not just a Thing That Happens, and that you must be active in your relationship every day (even on the good days), then there's no reason why it shouldn't go the distance.
