What does “love” mean to you? Is it just a good feeling? Is it companionship? Is it comfort? Is it direction for the future?
Finding the one
You’re reflecting on the past, which won’t ever be again. Even if they were to leap back into your life, they wouldn’t be the same, and neither would you.
True love is wanting the absolute best for someone, even if what is best for them is to not be in a relationship with you. True love wants them to soar, and not be weighed down by anything that doesn’t fully serve them. True love is unselfish. True love serves the person being loved on every level.
Get (or borrow a pet). Because animals are the best matchmakers.
Chances are you don’t even know where you want to go on holiday this summer, or what you want to have for dinner tonight, let alone who you want to spend the rest of your life with.
We get so caught up in this idea of true love, that we’re supposed to find it by this certain time, that it’s supposed to look a certain way, that we’ll know, beyond a doubt, what we’re doing and how things will pan out. But love isn’t like that.
Love and perfection are two different things. Love is real. Finding someone who will drive you crazy, but still make your life wonderful—that’s real.
I do not care much what you look like, but I do hope this; that your smile is easy, and kind.
If we stop searching for what we should get in a relationship maybe we’ll start to pay attention to what we can give.
Stop worrying if he likes you. Worry if you like him. You are equal players in this relationship.
