Relationship Advice - Nothing Strange About Love
To many, love is strange. Why does it happen? Why did you suddenly start caring for this person that was once a stranger and is now more than just a friend? And what are these strange feelings inside your stomach?
Love is strange.
There’s no question about it: you’re developing feelings. And if you already had feelings to begin with, you know that you feel something entirely real that makes you feel just as human. And when your partner is gone, you just don’t feel the same. This feeling is one of the most beautiful things a human can experience. I’d prefer to be in love than to have all the pizza in the world – even though I love pizza.
Love is warm.
Remember back to when you met your partner for the first time. How did you feel? Did you feel warm? Did it feel like the right call?
Love is strange, but it’s a lot stranger living without feelings – at least, that’s what I think. Life is mostly about sentimental value and what these sentimental things mean to us. In the moment that you take sentiment out of our own lives, it’s hard to be comfortable – let alone happy.
You Stick Around
There’s not much explanations that can accurately depict what everyone in the world is feeling, especially when it comes to their love lives. But, if you really care about your significant other, you’ll stick around.
Love Without End
When you first meet your partner, you just know there’s something about this person that fancies you, and you want to stick around to find out why. At the end of the day, you find out you’re bargaining for so much more than you were expecting. As you continue to see this person, things go great. Good for you.
It’s these kinds of stories that bring joy to me, as that’s exactly how I felt when I met my partner. Things feel magical, and they feel great. You get lonely without them, even though you have plenty of things around you to do. And your significant other feels the same way. This is when you know you have something real going on, when you find yourself thinking about the other person and how that person is doing.
You Fight Until the End
When things get bad, you don’t go anywhere. You care and you stick around. No matter the road and how heavy the rain is, you happen to have an umbrella for two. No matter the odds – no matter the struggles – you fight until the end and you don’t give up. This is what a relationship ought to be, but it isn’t a perfect model because everyone’s different. If there are people, there is diversity. With diversity, you’re looking at millions of different combinations. What works for me, might not work for you. However, at the end of the day, if you have stuck around this long with your significant other, I want to praise you. I know you’ve found the one.
