Gigantic bouquets, expensive gifts, and big proposals; that’s all love seems to have come to for our generation.

But for Amy Betters-Midtvedt, the definition of love is rather different. 

After spending some blissful years with her husband, she believes love is not in the big gestures but in the small ones we usually take for granted. 

She beautifully expresses it in this post: 

“Listen up young ones: This is what your knight in shining armor looks like when you are in your 40s.”
“And you guys, there were signs it would be this way! So, I have tips for you.”

So take a cue from Amy and find someone who would love you unconditionally, someone who would run out to get your favourite ice cream or will scratch that unscratchable itch till you fall asleep.

Someone who would iron your favourite dress because he thinks you look beautiful in it, swomeone who’ll be a partner, a friend, a guide, a helper, and everything else. That is the kind of love that will last a lifetime.
