Asked on Quora, my answer is:
Love in reality is when you still want to be with a person after you can’t sleep because of how they occupy the bed, when you still want to kiss them with their morning breath, when you do the dishes not because you want to, but because you don’t want her to have to wake up to a sink full of dirty dishes tomorrow, when you show up even when you don’t want to, when you go places because it’s important to her, and because you smile together, and laugh together, and finish each others sentences.
I’ll let others deal with the fantasies. The reality is good enough for me.
