Love; a four letter word

When we think of what we want out of life; love seems to be one of the main things that comes up for most people. 

We’ve all been there, wishing you had that perfect relationship with your dream guy/girl. 

One thing that I’ve learned from finding what I would call ‘the one’ is that there is no such thing as perfect. Real love is finding someone that you don’t ever want to give up on, that you’d do anything for and someone you can grow with and struggle with, who feels the same for you. Real love is having hard times, learning everything there is to know about each other and feeling comfortable to be yourself. 

A relationship is only as good as the effort you put into it, and keep putting into it, long past the honeymoon phase. 

I once read a post that was from a happily married older man who was asked how he kept the love alive. His answer was simple and he said, ‘I come from a generation where if things are broken, we fix them. Rather than throwing them away’. This applies to disagreements that can be resolved with a little patience, love and communication. 

If you’re still waiting to meet your partner and are feeling lonely; don’t worry. It’s worth waiting for someone who will make you happy, and when you do; it’ll feel like you’ve never waited at all.

  1. I think you never stop looking for that perfect love even if you meet someone and are really very happy – few people are lucky enough to spend their entire lives with a soulmate and the rest of us have to just look on in envy.

    1. No ones perfect, even those relationships that seem that way. Everyone is human and we all have things to learn about ourselves as well as others. Someone may look on at others and think they have the perfect life but they may not feel that way about themselves x

      1. Yep – that’s what my blog is about! Everyone thinks my life is perfect and it fact it’s pretty complicated and damn hard work!!! I am a romantic though and I do like to believe that a chosen few share a perfect love
