    ~ Because I've Seen It ~

    MY GRANDPARENTS HAVE BEEN MARRIED 60 YEARS..... I'm not saying it's easy or anything. In fact, watching them through the years.....I'd say it's probably the hardest job anyone will ever have. But if love isn't worth the pain, the work, or the late nights..............what is...

    I Sincerely Believe It Can Last Forever

    True love - caring deeply and unconditionally for someone - lasts forever. That type of love extends to family and friends as much as it does lovers. I've seen it before with my family. Not all relationships last but that doesn't mean you stop loving the person you're with...

    A Special Bond

    Love can last, I do sincerely believe that, but to be truly lasting it needs to be unconditional.  Love between a man and woman changes with time.  It's inevitable and is not to be confused with passion and lust.  I believe these to be different things.  To...

    For 15 years, I have had a relationship I keep coming back to. It's amazing I think. It's not a typical relationship, but I know that it keeps getting stronger every time I go back to him. Rather I see him at 5-10, 12-15, 18-20... I know that I care for him like no other and I...

    Does love truelly exist,

    or is it just a feeling that subsides overtime. True love is immortal, those who have truelly loved once and knows the pain off losing that love are fortunate. Better to have love once then never. What else is true love than the beauty off a fairy tale and always a happy ending...
