Very Soppy Soup

| Romantic | January 23, 2015

(I’ve met a guy I really like while traveling for work. After a lovely week together, our work locations both move and we are separated but still keeping in touch. Although it’s clear we’re both rather fond of each other, we’ve carefully avoided using the word “love” due to the distance problem. One night on the phone…)

Guy: “At lunch today I saw wild rice soup on the menu and I said, ‘I love wild rice soup!’ And then I thought how stupid it is that I can say I love soup, but I can’t say I love you.”

Me: “Hey, [Guy]?”

Guy: *keeps talking* “I mean, why is everyone so afraid of those words? Why does it have to be such a big deal? It’s really—”

Me: “[Guy]!”

Guy: *finally stops* “What?”

Me: “I love you.”

Guy: “Oh, my god. I love you, too!”

(I will always have a special place in my heart for wild rice soup after this!)
