I got an email recently from a reader named Dakota:
Have you ever done an edition asking readers how they knew that they were with the partner they wanted to be with forever? I’ve been doing some serious thinking about that question in my own life, and it occurred to me that you might have done, or be interested in doing, a readers’ answer edition based on that question.
Why thank you, Dakota, I would.
Let’s expand this to friendship, too. To put it in Shondaland terms, how did you know your person was your person?
