Listen with your good ear.
It is rare for a person to not tell on him or herself.
Listen to your lovers words with your good ear, the one not connected to your libido or self esteem.
Listen with the ear that is objective and filters through the debris of those conversations about nothing for the nuggets of truth.
It seems that any part of him or her that overly excites will eventually exhaust.
Contentment is rich, soothing and becomes more profound as time goes by.
To be "madly in love" is to be mad, a state that no one but a mad person would enter into willingly.
In love, listen and see contentment as an individual goal to be compounded by the interests of your partner
