It's a Bob Marley quote:

"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? 
She's not perfect - you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. 
She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there."  Bob Marley

what I glean from it is that opiner's philosophy is be casual, don't force fit, let things develop naturally, keep expectations in check and don't proceed on your ideal of them: proceed on what you know through time spent in each other's presence.

You are the only person whose interpretation seems so logical and on point. I just wondered why he would send it to me. You are right naturally we have such an awesome time when we are together tho
