Yes, I am in love and very happy. True love is not just all gooey romance, it's being able to compromise with each other and talk. Of course there IS the gooey romance stuff too! After a bad experience about 10 years ago, I decided that I was never going out with anyone ever again, and I made that vow last for 8 years. A group of friends (all single and not interested in each other 'that way') went on holiday, and one of the lads brought his friend with him. This friend liked me, but I fobbed him off. He persisted and I eventually gave in saying I'd be willing to get to know him as mates only. I began to realise that I'd never felt this way about anyone ever before, although I didn't say anything to him. We were ice skating with the same friends after a couple of months and he told me he was falling in love with me, and now some time later we're married!
