I want to make                      out with you in alleyways- I want to trace your cheek with the        tip               of                          my                                       finger.

Anyone who is in a relationship or married needs to ask themselves one question. That question is not “Do I love this person?” but “Do I LIKE them?” That is the true measure of any relationship. Do you like spending time with that person? Do you have great conversations? Do you like wiling away the hours together in comfortable conversation…
