1. Your beau is the perfect accessory for a night out.
2. When you get a new one, you make sure everyone knows it’s for your lips only, especially around your co-workers.
3. No matter its shape or size, you appreciate your beau for what’s on the inside, not just for its curves.
4. You’re constantly comparing new finds to your one true love.
5. Every time you see each other, it’s like the very first time… all over again.
6. DC is the last thing you think about before falling asleep and the first thing you reach for when you wake up.
7. You support it when it goes through its phases (vanilla, cherry, etc.), but you always prefer the original.
8. And when your DC is empty inside, you feel empty inside too.
9. A bagged lunch at work doesn’t seem so bad when you can have your beau there.
10. You always bring DC with you to family events and important social gatherings.
11. Your love is loud and proud, and you don’t care who knows it.
