This relationship makes you both feel just wonderful, due to a very real and deep sense of love and understanding that has existed between you almost from the start. As soon as you started exchanging emails or phone calls, your lover, especially, recognizes that in you, they've found a real friend. You instinctively respond to them in a positive way, supporting and protecting them and quickly offering them the precious gift of devotion.
They feel as if they're completely accepted and well-loved by you. This is because there is an open flow of communication that runs between you -- and it isn't necessarily always verbal. You simply get along well, and both enjoy your companionable silences as much as the stimulating conversations you share. You also encourage this person to be more social; as a couple, you surround yourselves with friends and loved ones, which increases the loving feelings that already exist between you. Essentially, you could be your lover's biggest fan -- you support their goals and causes in life, and cheer them on as they meet with success in their life. You also are able to support them through the rougher patches that inevitably crop up in life. At base, you're good friends, which is a wonderful foundation both for longer-term relationships and for shorter, sweeter affairs.
