Having love in your life is like having a cashmere sweater — once you make the initial investment, it only gets softer, warmer, and comfier over time, as long as you take good care of it. Even if it gets worn over the years, you can usually find a way to patch it up, and it's definitely worth the effort. Let's be clear: By "love," I'm not referring to those obnoxious couples flaunting their relationship on your Insta feed. Genuine affection is oftentimes something other people can't see, and I've rounded up some memes about love that capture what it feels like to be accepted for exactly who you are.

Valuing your partner takes more than just posting a pic on the 'gram with your hand on their chest and captioning it, "My person 💖." (You guys know the pose I'm talking about, so don't pretend like you don't.) Love means knowing their coffee order, telling them they look cute even when they have a pimple, and never running out of things to say to each other. Whether you find that kind of intimacy with an SO, a bestie, your doggo, or a taco, these memes demonstrate just how amazing that love can feel.
