I suppose that one approach may be to try telling her that, ultimately, love isn't a competition. That you and Pixie aren't like seats in a movie theater - love, in any of it's forms, isn't something quantifiable in best/worst terms. Having a best implies a worst, and that isn't something that makes any sense to me.
You see it your way, I see it mine. Somewhere in between is probably reality, and I'm ok with that.
