Love Optimist

I guess I'm what you could call a "love optimist." I really, truly want to believe that if there is love, real love, that you can overcome everything, but as the saying goes... it takes two to tango. And there are so many things that go into a successful love equation- having the same priorities, ambition, values, lifestyle, goals, the right timing.

What happens if having love, being in love with each other was just not enough? If you love each other, but... compromises that must be made can't happen immediately, if one of the partners has issues that require a tremendous amount of work to work through , if a person knows that he/she is loved, but doesn't feel loved in the way her or she would like to be by the other...

When this happens it is always difficult and perplexing. You love each other but...

In my younger days, I was so idealistic about love, believing that if I loved someone enough and was committed enough to making it work, working through things- that it could work. Question is, is the situation _really_ a workable situation and is the other person just as committed, willing and/or able to do his part?

    That is precisely where CLEAR COMMUNICATION comes in the scene.

    Personally,i DO Believe,if you are Best Friends with Your Partner,Communication becomes easy. But if you hold your partner in Awe ( Read -'LOVE OF MY LIFE') forget about it.

    Lol,that could be the reason why i have never been in a stable relationship.
