Love for me has got to be one of the hardest damn things to understand. All sorts of people have different philosophies for love. For example
"Love is accepting someone for who they are"
"Love is looking over the flaws for the good things"
"No one can tell you your in love, you just know it"
I've made this thread because I made a search and found no LOVE threads. I want to read people's personal opinions on love, what experiences they have gone through, and what love has made them do in the past. And by LOVE, I don't mean love your mom, dad, etc.
To start off this thread, I'll say a story about me.
I've been together with a girl now for two years and five months. In reality it is a short amount of time, but it has felt like forever. They've been great. Good times and of course the bad. I've learned much about women too in those two years. Not just about mine, but about others too.
Recently though, I have not felt the same about her. I'm starting to look at her more like a good friend that I can talk to her about things on my mind. I'm beginning to realize that's not the kind of love I want for the future.I need someone else. Someone who has something else that I've yet to realize.
I use to think I loved this women, but I've put more thought into it, it feels like I love her for what she has done for me. She's given me wisdom about women, made me more gentlemen like, and I've learned just more about relationships in general.
It's hard thinking about it. One side of me is a little scared of what might happen if I decide to end us and I'm wrong, the other side of me feels like I'll be free to find my perfect love.
....As of now, I'm leaning onto the leaving her side. I only hope she can understand how I feel and I really hope she'll continue to be my friend. I would hate to lose contact with her.
Also, very recent, we have been talking about this. She still wants to stay with me and is sad if I'll go. Although I deeply care about her, I've got my life to think about to.
So yeah..That's me. Got anything you'd like to share?
Remember, it can be anything from love advice to others, stories that will influence others to find or end love, and even just plain old things that have happened while you were, or still are, in love.
