Who still opens and closes the car door for me, no matter how many places we go (which is usually a lot for just one day).
Who so shyly and carefully asked if he could “maybe” one day get to call me “자기야.”
Who actually called me “darling,” to which I cracked a joke about the “Honey and Darling couple from Zelda.” And he replied saying I was perfection.
Who simply said “you,” early on, while discussing what we each look for in relationships, bringing an embarrassed smile to my face after I had spent 10 minutes dissecting what I do and do not like.
Who referred to me as “real,” with such relief and happiness that it was the best compliment I could have asked for in a very long time because ultimately, I want to make him smile.
