Stages of Love.
Butterflies in the stomach. The elation of falling in love. The calm that comes with knowing you and another person love each other just the same. The struggles that inevitably emerge when two universes collide and try to create space for each other. The resolution to make things work, hard as it may be. And then the joyous journey of friendship when the two of you figure out how to make things work in the long run. Finally, the memories of how it all began.
