ORE...yeah, I like that and I'm lucky enough to have that. Gator and I have been together 27 years and married for 25. Tech and I will reach 3 years since we met in January...while still learning about him, I think I have a little of the ORE with him as well.
I agree, there is nothing like the freedom that comes with trust. And nothing like seeing your partner hurt about something and still work to give you what hurt them and vise versa. Nothing says love quite like that. How can you not appreciate something so bravely fought for and grown through?
