Even after being with my partner for a while, I love finding out new things about him.
If love is a universal feeling, so is heartbreak.
The crisis has taken the normal relationship trajectory and thrown it into disarray.
Instead of trying to make your partner see things your way, respect that you both see things differently, and that’s a beautiful thing.
What if we came to terms with the fact that, for now, this is life? As messy and fucked up as it is, this is our new way of living. For each person, it looks different, but for each person, it’s not what it used to be.
Are you ecstatic when you match with someone cute? How about insecure when you don’t?
Often, people focus too much on what a relationship can give them: stability, financial security, a baby daddy/momma, someone to remind to grab milk while they’re out.
Loving is a choice.
I can’t give my new partners my full trust. I can barely shell out half-trust.
While listening is the first step for communication in a relationship, empathy is what truly matters when your partner is talking about their struggles.
