I think I tend to be more like Gunsmoke in this regard. It's not the initial falling in love that I love so much - it's the actual loving, as I feel the bond of love growing deeper... that's what I love. As I feel his love for me growing, I feel secure and happy... and as I feel my love for him continuing to grow stronger and deeper, I feel even happier and safer.
As Lao Tzu said: Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
I find that rings true for me.
