Loving Like Family
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
When I think about my best friend, everything is right, and I want to kiss him and hold him. He shares everything in common and he seems just right for me, everyone says so. He is sweet, cute, he loves theater, and acting, and dance, we have the same friends, my family loves him, his family loves me, and we're extremely close. I tell him everything and he can tell me anything, and we trust each other and we get mad at each other and we love each other like family.
But that's just it, like family! And when I look at him the feeling disappears, and when I leave it's back. Please help me understand and decide what to do. Do I love as something more than I already do, or not?
I'm not sure I understand the problem here. Loving someone like family is the strongest you can possibly love someone. When you marry someone, they become your family. They become the core foundation of your family. So absolutely you should love your partner like family, be that comfortable with them, be able to tell them anything and hear anything they tell you.
Treasure that strong level of connection!
