Well, newsflash, this isn’t a movie. It’s real life. Every action has a consequence, and every relationship requires effort in order to succeed. Happy endings don’t just happen. Happiness requires sacrifice and humility in order to achieve, on both ends. So before you jump into your next relationship, ask yourself if you’re ready for that kind of a commitment.
If the answer is “no”, well then it is important to make that clear upfront. It is inconsiderate and cruel to play with someone’s emotions, leading them down a path you know results in a dead end. If you make it clear that you are only interested in friendship or fun, then you should be all right. The other person will be aware, and can take whatever precautions they feel are necessary to protect their feelings…or so they think.
Again, as we’ve seen in movies so many times before, a friendly relationship doesn’t always remain that way. Should one person begin to develop stronger feelings for the other, problems can come about. The aforementioned declaration of friendship may begin to waste away for some, making room for even stronger emotions to take their place. If both parties aren’t committed to these feelings, then heartbreak is sure to follow. Despite the previous warning, the heart knows what it wants. Love can make hope appear as a possibility, even when there is none.
However, love is not all divorce and heartbreak. When two hearts do match up together is can be a wonderful thing. A successful, and strong relationship requires effort from both sides in order to maintain its ever-growing size. If only one side works at maintaining a relationship’s stability, it can become lopsided or even topple over. When the two sides work in unison however, there is no limit to the heights in can reach.
So appreciate the loved ones you have, and understand what it means to be loved by them. Work for what you love, and always keep the lines of communication open. Never fear embarrassment for your feelings, yet be mindful of your actions and how your partner may perceive them. With these tips in mind, you will be well on your way to a very happy relationship.
Happy dating, singles!
