After a prolonged debate today about the essence of love, and whether love would prevent us from hurting the people we would claim to love the most, I believe one of the problems with relationships would be that people enter them with this preformed concept/idea of how the romance should go. They have already plotted the course so to speak, and have decided what love consists of.
So the main difficulty is that people go into these relationships with preconceived notions of love, but they have two different views of what love is. And because they both expect different things, when their two different views do not unfold as expected, their "love" dissipates.
The question is ... was it ever really love?
This is what I think the person who loves you the most will think...
Nothing compares to you.
