I Still Believe In Real Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 248 People

    I haven't been on this website long,

    but all I seem to see is, "i'm the other woman", "she cheated on me", "i cheated on her", "he cheated on me". It feels like it should ruin love, hearing about people constantly betraying or being betrayed. It makes you forget what it's all really about - love. I understand that...

    Me joining this group is inaccurate As I never had believed in real love.  I believe that romantic comedies were very much based on the premise to hold women into a trap in which they would lessen their chances and preoccupy themselves with searching for the mythical...

    Every True Love Takes A Small Part Of Your Heart And Soul Forever

    I believe when you truly loved someone, a small part of them is always with you. Saying goodbye and letting go can break your heart for sure. But it happens for a reason. Only God knows why. Sure, it's difficult not to get sad or get a bad attitude once in a while. We've all been...

    Believe It to Receive It.

    Real Love

    To think someone is beautiful and to have resulting lust is not love. Yes, it creates a wonderful feeling. One that is usually fleeting though. Real love is not defined by actions nor is it sweet nothings. Love is not just a perspective where flaws are not considered. To love...

    One thing I think is important in

    love: “Relationships-of all kinds-are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will...

    Real Love Is Almost Nonexistant

    "Tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all".  That's a load of ****.  Being alone was painful, yes, but not like this.  This is worse.  Yeah, I still believe in Real Love, but know that it's very rare and few people really find it.

    I believe in love that grows naturally. Love cannot be begged, feelings cannot be acquired and attention cannot be asked for. I won't accept any other type of love.
