Love, Self

Finding love is hard. And exhausting.

Finding love is hard. Whether it's seeking your perfect significant other, deciphering the mixed messages and what exactly the "butterflies" mean, or moving on from a love that didn't work out how you planned ... it's tricky. 

No matter what stage you're at in your relationship, the pathway to finding true love can be filled with toil, confusion, misunderstanding, and tribulation. But it's these difficulties that lead to a deeper, more heartfelt connection. 

Finding love isn't something as easy as an "I Spy" book or a "Where's Waldo" ... it's an ongoing struggle. A give and take.

Be they man or woman, mistress or mister, everyone aims to find their one true love. It's not just a fairy tale myth, it's reality. And for some, that reality is harder to find than for others.

Take Princess Fiona from Shrek for example. She was locked in a tower her entire life (so she couldn't even search for her love, but rather had to sit and wait). When true love faced her, it was mean and green. Naturally, it was a turn-off. 

However, after an adventure over the river and through the woods, she came to realize that sometimes, your perfect match isn't what you imagine in your mind as "perfect." 

Luckily, there are some among us in the real world that have found a way to make it work for them, and they've shared their wise words with us so we can make it through the labyrinth that is courtship as well. Check out these quotes about finding love to help you along your path to everlasting romance and happiness.
