8 months is not that long to wait to hear those words. If I could go back in time, I would choose the guy who shows it long before he says it over someone who knows the right words to say but has no idea how to take the actions that are supposed to go along with them, every time.
I always went the other way, unfortunately.
This dude clearly adores you to pieces, and I knew that way before you made the big reveal at the end. I mean, the blankets?
That’s a guy who is paying attention to who you are, and they only do that if they really care. Hang on to this one, even if he never waxes poetic.
Love is an action.
