I would rather you avoid traveling down that dark road. Together, Kiran and I have come up with this list of 10 signs that you've found true love. We agree that all 10 exist in our romance. And, as further evidence, very few of the 10 were present in our previous serious relationships.
Some people say you don't need an initial spark of sexual attraction to form a satisfying and enduring romantic relationship. We disagree. When you first meet your person, there ought to be Fourth of July-worthy fireworks. Sure, the flames of passion won't keep a relationship going strong forever. You'll need mutual respect, compassion, and great communication. But physical connection provides a powerful platform upon which to build intimacy and trust.
While there are sparks, you also should feel, when you're hanging out with your person, like you're wearing a pair of soft, cozy pajamas. No desire to be just a bit funnier or smarter, better looking or a better athlete. You're yourself, and that's awesome. You commit to each other whole-heartedly and without reservation. Kiran says, "YES is the greatest word we have in our quiver of love arrows.
YES tells us what we want. And by expressing that want, we express ourselves.

We express what we believe. We express our claim on this world. Saying YES to our love affirms my life. Do you find yourself keeping secrets from your partner? That's a sure sign he or she is not The One. When it's true love, you should find yourself wanting to share everything. Opening up the fire hydrant of your heart and gushing out your most closely guarded sources of pride and shame.
And on a daily basis, you should want your beloved to know what you're up to; whom you're seeing, emailing and texting; what you're thinking and feeling. Your love is made simple and true by being honest. Psychologists say that we live in an age of narcissism. We're each wrapped up in our individual journeys. I've personally spent the better part of the last ten years on a spiritual journey to sort myself out and find peace. But the moment I met Kiran, I realized that I would put us, our needs, and our goals, ahead of me, mine, and I.
It's been incredibly inspiring and freeing. I fully anticipate that having children which we hope to do soon will only increase that sensation exponentially. Kiran writes, "Descartes had it wrong. It's not, 'I think, therefore I am.

A mighty sequoia that is immutable in its presence, strength, and inspiration. So large a champion of life that it daunts all in its proximity. Kiran and I wrote an entire blog on this subject alone. You should feel swept away by your relationship.

You ought to want to scream about your partner's awesomeness to the world. On the contrary, here's a huge red flag: you spend more time talking about your relationship than actually living it. You're constantly dissecting, negotiating, and evaluating. People say, "Relationships are work. It should feel happy, fulfilling, and fun.

Oh, how I wish I'd listened to my friends and family. They told me over and over again during my unhappy years with my ex-boyfriend that I should let go of him and move on.
But did I heed their advice? I stubbornly continued to struggle to make our relationship work for years. Well, I was soon to find out that Shloime might not be a successful spinner of fiction, but he was a chronic exaggerator. Not surprisingly, it was a big snore. It involved the young rabbi, who was teaching a literature class at City College in addition to putting a full day in at the yeshiva.
I skimmed the rest because I knew Shloime was going to call up with a pop quiz on the book. Like Philip Roth novels. About the Orthodox world. You know, with sex and humor and everything but not bashing the Orthodox world. Still supportive of tradition. Why did I say that?
Financial desperation? A sudden desire to become satire in action? That was a mistake. Well, not quite. Shloime flew to Jerusalem with boxes of Philip Roth novels.
I had gotten rid of my volumes of Philip Roth, Henry Miller and even Edith Wharton in a fever of religious frenzy that had seized me ten years earlier and had lasted until my recent divorce. I was happy to have Shloime bring me some of what I had foolishly sold for a song. Shloime and I sat for hours outlining ideas for this scandalous yet redemptive smash hit he wanted me to write.
A lot of secular Jewish guys are dating Chinese women these days. It would appeal to a wider audience than the Orthodox. Anyway, they should definitely have sex. Go into detail. And it could influence secular Jews to make teshuvah.
