Today I was questioned by a good friend on the mechanics of relationships and the validity of true love. While most of the questions seemed easy enough to answer, most of my answers came out as whimsical smiles and starry-eyed sighs. At first I couldn’t decide if my relationship felt like puppy love or true-love. Below are three questions one can answer in order to find out if true love is nearby.
- Does he/she tick all your boxes?
Truth is; it doesn’t really matter what is on our list for the ‘perfect person’. Human beings usually find love in the most random of places and the physical and emotional attribute that you identify on your little list will not help you get closer to the one you are meant to be with. I personally fell in love with someone who was the complete opposite of my list and I could not have expected better. This just proves the validity of description and identification. Let people into your life, you will be surprised what comes your way.
- Does your specific situation allow a relationship?
Your love life is a pool of water, constantly flowing and changing direction. Life is a bolder, all the little and big things that come your way make the pool splash and ripple, and that much harder to flow smoothly. Your current situation can lead to a harmful and scarring situation. You need to be stable in your home life, work life and social life before you can have a stable love life. I always re-evaluate my circumstances every now and again to ensure my happiness and the happiness of my significant other. You need to love your work, enjoy your home and have friends that care for you and will always be there.
- Are you the ‘relationship type’?
I saved this for last because it is the most important. You need to be happy with yourself before anyone can be happy with you. Have you accepted yourself? Do you wake up knowing who you are and what you are going to do for the day? It is important that you know yourself, relationships are all about sharing. And if you don’t know what it is that you are sharing, how sure can you be that you are actually sharing? Know yourself and share yourself. After all, there is only one you in the world, and everyone deserves a piece of it.
I hope this helped and that you have happiness come your wayJ
Peace be with you.
