Is this love, is this love that I'm feeling?
Twitter is certainly feeling all the love after a University teacher shared a touching story with his class in response to one student's question - how do you know when you're in love?
According to Buzzfeed, Dan West an assistant professor at Ohio University, explores the issue of love and relationships in his Human Communication class. He had a different kind of assignment in mind when he asked his pupils to submit questions anonymously using notecards and he didn't shy away from answering about the big L.
“It just hits you, you can’t expect it and you can’t plan for it." He than went on to talk about the moment he knew he wanted to marry his wife Vicki.
We had just come from a movie and stopped by a grocery store so I could buy some food for the next day. We were looking at ice cream and as I watched her choosing I realized that I was going to be buying groceries with her for the rest of my life.
Albeit romantic, it was a pretty straight-up answer but one of his students thought it deserved to be shared with the world.
Today somebody asked my professor how he knew he wanted to marry his wife & he said, “I took her to the grocery store to get ice cream & while she was picking out a flavor, I realized she was who I wanted to grocery shop w for the rest of my life..”
