And, finally, our number one quote! Certainly, we wish we knew the author of this one. However, whoever said it firstly, we think it’s the perfect embodiment of that sweet longing we feel when we’re missing someone. Moreover, this is a quote that, when you close your eyes, you can feel what the author is saying. Most importantly, it says a lot in very few words. It’s powerful. To clarify, it doesn’t get better than this expression:
#1. “I can’t wait until I can roll over at 2 AM to find your lips, instead of a text.” – Author Unknown
Certainly, that was a long list. However, we’re betting you’re in full love-mode now and ready to express those feelings. So, what are you waiting for? Go tell that special person how you feel.
