What's the story of your first "I love you" with your SO?

We had been dating several months. Because of a complicated situation it was difficult for us to be together.

We took a long train ride from Vietnam back to China to the city we lived in. The trip was amazing and we connected moreso that we had ever before.

We arrived to the Chinese train station very late at night, the second we got there it started pouring down rain.

The time it took to run from the train to the station under shelter we were sopping wet.

We wanted to stay together but we knew it would be hard given our circumstances.

We held each other in our arms and talked about how we want to stay together. I couldn't tell if it was rain or tears rolling down her face.

I was too scared to say it. But then she did. I was so relieved. I told her I loved her too. We hugged for a long time under the roar of the rainstorm.

That was almost 3 years ago and we're still together.
