Why This Generation Has The Wrong Idea of Love.

3 – We fall in love with potential not reality:

We love the potentials in our partner, but won’t endure through their mistakes and shortcomings.  The honeymoon stage is all we consider love.  To us the honeymoon stage defines the relationship and we expect things to improve or at least remain the same.  From the experiences in the honeymoon stage, dawn future expectations for our partner and relationship. Unfortunately humans change, they face rough times, they fall short of their potentials, and the relationship may have rough seasons. Yet many of us never see beyond the honeymoon stage, when its done with, so are we.

    Agreed. I’ve definitely been guilty of the point “True love is considered old school:” and have had a 3 year relationship ended because I wasn’t “loving” enough. I treated that girl like dirt at times because of my own angst. I had those very fears which made me keep walls up.

    I’ve learned since and am trying harder to keep my walls down in my current relationship.

      I can def understand. It’s tough but as long you learned from your past mistakes and willing to do better now you’re on the right track

    Wow, this seriously struck me because it is so true. I’ve had this conversation with so many people as of late. A lot of the problem is people have no passion anymore, refers to what you said about “robots looking for a real experience”. How do you expect to have a “real” experience without allowing yourself down that path. Everything in life is work, including love, and if a person is not willing to put the effort into anything that what do you expect to gain from life.
