You experience an uncanny ability to completely miss or minimize any of his defects. Chewing with his mouth open is so cute. Failure to pay his bills is just an oversight because he is too talented for the mundanities of everyday life. In short he is perfect. Until he isn’t. I have often counseled women to wait to commit until the passions that come with falling in love dies down enough to be able to think and evaluate. You have to be able to see him for who he actually is to have a chance at creating a lasting relationship.
