I quote this from quora. It’s someone’s else answer for question about love, but idk, in many ways precisely what i feel about Damas :)
It was not “love at first sight,” as it had little to do with how he looked. However, I knew quickly.
How did I know? Because it was easy to be with him. Our first date lasted many days. Phone conversations meant to say a quick goodnight ran a few hours long. I lost track of time when we were together.
He is hopeful and optimistic. This is huge. Dating jaded people is tough. It is refreshing to be with someone who believes in the possible, and encourages me to do the same. He likes almost everyone, and believes the best in people. Early on, this was a huge attraction. Life is hard enough, no need to make it more complicated by believing the worst in others and situations.
His laugh. Wow. This was another clue. When he laughs, it is almost embarrassing how loud and unself-councious he is. It is impossible not to smile.
He is not a push over. After a few dates, I could sense that although he is kind, he has the self confidence to stand up for himself. I generally shy away from confrontation. However, I do my best to protect myself and others from harm, and I saw early on that we had this in common.
It was easy to be with him. Importantly, however he pushed me against taking the easy way out. He asked hard questions, which has made me smarter, tougher, and more forgiving. I like who I am with him.
