There’s an inevitable thrill at the beginning of every relationship—the chase, the getting to know each other, the falling in love—it’s fun.  But love is not a Fairy tale—there is no guaranteed happy-ever-after like you see in the movies.

It’s said that, every relationship will get boring after you’ve been together for years. The “in love” phase diminishes and it gets difficult. Suddenly you start seeing imperfections in your once perfect person and it’s no longer all fun and laughs. That’s when people tend to believe “the spark is gone” and goes looking for someone else to feel wanted, admired, and loved again. But that’s not how love works—at least not real love anyway.

If you keep walking away in search of that spark, you’ll never experience real unconditional love. When that spark is gone, that’s when real love begins. That’s when you need to remember why you’re with that person in the first place. That’s when you need to remind yourself of what that person means to you and what losing them would be like.

No matter whom you’re with, it’s always going to get boring; so you might as well be with someone who’s willing to love you unconditionally and never give up on you. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. So love someone when you don’t want to, when they aren’t the easiest to deal with, and when you find them hard to love—that’s the essence of real love.

Love is difficult to define and impossible to live without. Love is not a feeling. Love is a verb. Love is a commitment. Love is a choice.

  1. Wow babe, I think this probably one of your deepest posts. All of it is so spot on. I agree with you 100%, however I think with some work, some figuring out your partner, it doesn’t have to be boring after a long time. Splendid post babe!

  2. For me, I believe love is when you physically and mentally only feel true peace when you are in the presence of your partner. It’s the connection of two souls and a feeling that only either one of them can ever comprehend.

  3. From my experience, love to be is freedom! You feel free in the way you think, feel, live, discuss, and share your life with someone. You don’t have to think twice before speaking your mind or being yourself. That freedom you get from not trying too hard, or the freedom from fear of things going haywire someday. Real love makes you comfortable with the person, and in your own skin too.You understand when the spark fades away (although it can always be ignited with a little effort) and you focus more on the deeper connections you have. This is a wonderful post! A lot of us have the wrong idea, or have been fed the wrong idea of love, which is why we sometimes hold on to relationships that aren’t worth it. It’s good to read good things about love!

    1. Ahhh.. freedom. Absolutely! Thanks for sharing those points Jiji. You’re supposed to feel at ease in the relationship but yes, as you rightfully said, it takes effort. There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to love and relationships. I think we have all been there–misconstrued by love. What’s most important is that we learn from it and move onto making better choices.
