But then he said the most simple, honest and amazing thing I've heard to date:
"I don't like loud people, but I love you. It's crazy."
I tilted my head for a moment, trying to decipher if it was a compliment or not. Then a huge grin spread across my face. Yes, I can be obscenely obnoxious. Yes, I may drive the general public insane. But here was my reserved boyfriend basically telling me that he loves the fact that I'm in your face, honest, and a sometimes way too open book. I felt pure joy.
There I was, being commended for something that could be a bad thing to anyone else. But he appreciates the fact that I'm different from him and have incredibly different ways of expressing myself (and much more openly than most.) It's little things like that that make me feel like things are right the way they need to be.
