True love is so simple! Everything just works, you follow your heart, speak from your heart, and all else simply falls into place. If the love is complicated, it's probably not meant to be, and will probably do you damage in the long run, by stunting your emotional, mental, and spiritual growth.
I'll tell you what I've discovered in my 51 years of love and lust. Well, I guess it hasn't been that long, since I didn't know what lust was until I was 12 or 13. It seems to me that you can have a hot, passionate relationship that's like a roller coaster ride of ups and downs...OR you can have a loving, respectful relationship that's almost always on an even keel. I think a combination of the two are practically impossible.
If you've found both in the same person, more power to ya! Give me your secret!
The question remains HOW on Earth you fall in love?!? Gosh, I'd like that, even if it's not answered - whatever, just to try...
Now I end up with some kinds of experiments in the field..Despite the fact that last time I was close to falling victim to my own experiment with my own feelings, journey towards love seemed to be as short as walking to Mexico.
Possessiveness - yes, getting used to someone and caring about him - yes, lust - always. Trust? Not really... Love? Never.
Love is the easiest feeling in the world to understand. Love is the feeling you have when you walk through an open field in the warm sunshine or when you open your eyes to a beautiful summer day.
Being in love, however, is the most difficult feeling in the world to understand. Being in love is the feeling of utter confusion - last night you had a verbal fight with your loved one, then you made love. Today you wonder...did you come to an agreement before making up? Or will you have the same argument again?
Life does come with a sense of irony. Don't waste your energy trying to figure out how the argument was made to end or if it will happen again? You only do more worrying and stressing about things you have no way of controlling.
