21 Truths Jim And Pam Taught You About Love
"I just had little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. For a long time, that's all I had."
Jim and Pam from The Office are one of the cutest couples in TV history.
But their love story is evidence that sometimes it takes a lot of patience to get what you want.
Their entire relationship is built on a solid foundation of friendship.
Because being friends first is a really great way to get to know someone.
And bond over silly jokes and special moments.
Playing the waiting game isn't always easy — it can definitely be hard on your heart.
But ultimately, if the love between you is mutual, you just need to stick it out.
And when the time is right, muster up enough courage to take action.
Love is especially great when you have a lot in common with your partner.
Always take the time to compliment each other.
And dote on each other every now and again.
Be with someone who you can be your complete, goofy self around.
But who also can handle the more serious part of your personality.
You don't have to necessarily have a traditionally "perfect moment" in order for something to feel special.
Because sometimes perfect moments actually happen in smaller, but meaningful, ways.
Just don't lose your sense of humor.
It's important to always have each other's backs and show solidarity when you can.
And be there for each other during tough times.
Most importantly, cherish the fact that you have each other.
Because real, true love comes once in a lifetime.
