How Truly In Love Are You?
It's not quite true love yet – maybe the relationship is still new and your devotion hasn't been tested yet.
You love this person, but there are things you're not willing to sacrifice for their sake. Or you just think farts are universally gross, regardless of who's doing them.
You're truly, deeply in love and your partner's happiness and wellbeing is just as important to you as your own.
