Understanding True Love

Love Letter

Research suggests that this style is rarely, if ever, fully actualized. It might well be the ideal we can hope for and strive toward. In searching for true love, we need to redirect our focus and energy from receiving to giving.

It can fill you with emotions ranging from joy to heartbreak. Let’s face it, we’ve all had our fair share of misconceptions about true love. From believing in the idea of “the one”, to expecting a fairy-tale ending – we’re often led astray by unrealistic expectations and Hollywood portrayals. When I first met Sam at a friend’s party, there wasn’t any lightning bolt or fireworks.

When it comes to defining true love, many people have different opinions and perspectives. Some believe it is a deep, passionate connection between two individuals, while others see it as selfless and unconditional affection. So, what is true love?

The Essence of True Love

Very different women many years ago, compared to today. Actually, marrying a man for money was more common back in the older ages. Women did not make as much money as the men, and they had to marry to support their family and themselves. Thats not love, cuz they did not have much of a choice. That way they could find someone they love instead.You are the problem, not the women.

In watching literally hundreds of relationships unfold, I believe that I can answer that question with relative accuracy. I understand what early feelings and behaviors most often predict when a new relationship will transform into long-lasting, true love. Of course, feelings of love can be more urgent in youth, and people tend to be more wary as life progresses, but new couples are new couples at every stage of life. No matter when or how they meet, some people do experience clearly magical connections very early on in a relationship that predict long-term commitment and devotion. One of the strongest signs of true love is unconditional love, where the care, affection, and love shown towards someone else is without any restraint or selfish objectives.

True love goes beyond physical attraction or infatuation. It is a profound emotional bond that involves respect, trust, and loyalty. This kind of love is characterized by genuine care, empathy, and understanding towards your partner.

That you can longer see yourself without the person you love. Love is most likely influenced by both biology and culture. Although hormones and biology are important, the way we express and experience love is also influenced by our own conceptions of love. But there is a way to be blissful by your own nature. If you are blissful, being loving is not a problem; you will anyway be loving.

That being said, recognizing true love isn’t always straightforward or easy. For instance, my friend Lisa spent years dating the “wrong” guys because she was chasing a Hollywood constructed idea of love – grand gestures and fiery passion. Then she met Mark – mild-mannered Mark with his dad jokes and pun-lover t-shirts — who didn’t fit her ‘ideal’. Yet he made her laugh like no one else could and cared for her in small yet significant ways that no flashy romantic gesture could ever match. It is likely not possible to quantify how often true love happens in the world. The definition of “true love” is highly subjective, varying considerably from person to person.

    Similarly, she shares that someone can also love another but be unable to truly express that love because they have yet to do important internal work. Alas, this is when we end up in the unfortunate predicament of emotional unavailability. Yet, in a secure loving relationship, both parties are dedicated to doing the work to ensure they are available for the sweetness a relationship can bring. Secure love isn’t a fixed endpoint; it’s a continual journey where partners actively and consistently show up for themselves, each other, and the relationship.
