It’s a rare privilege to be engaged in a caring and nurturing relationship. The gift of love is something that you should never ever take for granted. It takes a great deal of commitment to make a relationship work, and if it’s going well for you, you should always be thankful. There are millions of single people who are desperate to find the kind of love that you currently have, and you have no reason to complain.
But you’re human and sometimes, you just can’t help it. You don’t REALLY want to be single again.

3. When He Asks You To Share the Blanket
There are few things that surpass the level of comfort of just wrapping yourself up tightly in a cozy blanket. There’s nothing quite like feeling like a toasty little burrito buried in the warmth of a nice comforter.
