    I will concede that I was confused when my husband and I first started dating. He didn’t come near me in public, save for the platonic barely felt arm touch. He was so embarrassed when I would kiss or hug him hello or goodbye in public. We live in the United States, but spend a lot of time in the Chinese sub-culture. When we began telling each other we loved one another, I would auto say it and I would get silence. The day he told me it was unnecessary to tell me perpetually and that he would show me he loved me, my perspective changed. I thought of all things. I thought about how he was always there in a heartbeat if I had car trouble or a bad day. I thought about how he knows my favorite foods perfectly and even shells my seafood. I thought about how he sometimes asks me when we are falling asleep if I feel safe and comfortable. I thought of how he brushes the hair from my face so he can see me clearly. I know East and West can meet in the middle seamlessly. Happy Valentines Day, K. A happier wife there never was.
