Make him laugh again, and cherish the time you spend together. Take walks and ride your bikes, curl up on the couch and watch movies beneath a blanket. Make him breakfast, but don't spoil him.

Kiss him and make love to him and consider yourself lucky for having met him, for he's the kind of man who'll prove you right.
