“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.“
— Lisa Kleypas
When did you first understand that you & your mate were a match?
For me, it was the way we finished each other’s sentences. It was how long he’d stay on the phone with me; knowing that this is a guy who loathes the phone. It was realizing that he was the first person I wanted to see every morning and the last one I wanted to see at night. It was knowing that no matter where I went, or what I did, he’d stand by my side if only I’d let him.
Hinges. They don’t work so well if there’s only one.
