In this year of 2015, love is a word that is thrown around after only knowing a person for one day. I’m still trying to figure out how this is possible when people have known themselves their entire life and can’t love themselves! So how in the world can you say you love a stranger? People will tell you want you want to hear in order to get what they want how they want it. Are all people the same, no, but many are. They are out all about self. Because of that, I like to define love as:
What does that mean? It means you don’t fall in love with the person and how they treat you and can be all you need and more. You fall in love with the looks, the sly talk, the sex, and the idea of having a mate. How do you change this?
When you begin to date, date with a purpose and a goal in mind. Don’t date just to be afraid of being single. This leads to the misconception of love. Know what you are looking for. Now please don’t go into the relationship with ten pages of information of what you want and not be willing to compromise. Relationships are all about compromise and truly it’s what helps the relationship remain strong. Two selfish people can’t and won’t thrive. Both parties have to have the word compromise in their vocabulary.
I challenge you to go out there and date on purpose! No more lusting thinking it’s love. But more dating with the goal to fall in love with the right one!
