You’ve discovered “the one” when you both bring out the best in each other. There’s a beautiful quote by poet Paul Valéry that captures this feeling: “Love is being foolish together.” This means that when you’re in love, your partner makes you smile and laugh like no one else can. You feel safe and understood, allowing you to drop your guard and be your true self without worrying about judgment.

Valéry also hinted, drawing from Plato’s wisdom, that love turns us into devoted fools for each other. Falling in love means abandoning your rational self to embark on a passionate journey with someone who holds the key to your heart. Being in love is about finding someone you’re willing to be a little foolish with—because that’s what love truly is: being happily foolish together.
