Being in a relationship teaches you more than just a few things about love, the most important being the fact that the ship of love does not sail all that smoothly without putting in any effort. While falling in love may seem easy from afar, it is but lovers who are truly familiar with the chutes and ladders of love. One can easily jump up the ladder of commitment with their beloved sweetheart in no time but that does not eliminate the callous chutes lining their path which they must dodge tactfully in order to take their love to the greatest of heights. Therefore, when declaring your undying love for your partner, one must acquaint himself with the fact that it takes the most committed of lovers to refuse surrendering to the threatening chutes. It is only such devout couples who are capable enough of converting their relationship into the most sacred of bonds known to mankind.
