It's not about the labels or becoming official. It's about getting to know someone well enough to develop genuine feelings for them. It's about being understanding and forgiving when situations are at their worst. It's about loving someone, not for what they have to offer but who they are. It's never about blaming your significant other for not treating you like how you want to be treated, it's about how hard they try to keep you happy.
