It is at the heart of any strong relationship.
One of the first things I loved about John was just how much fun he was to talk to. Don’t get me wrong—we have a lot of serious conversations, too. But the overwhelming majority of our conversations are fun. I love hearing his opinions; I love making him laugh. We debate with each other and push each other. We share information and ideas. We joke and tease. We genuinely enjoy spending time together. Since so much of our relationship was long distance, I thought that the novelty of conversation might wear off once we were living in the same place. Nope. We are still chatterboxes to the extreme—so much that while we’re traveling we rarely turn on the radio to fill time. Even when the road trip is eight hours long!
