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.
"They say love hides behind every corner. I must be walking in circles."
"Love isn't about finding the perfect person. It's about realizing that an imperfect person can make your perfect."
"You are my one in 6 billion."
"Once you stop looking for what you want, you find what you need."
"Stop looking for a partner. Focus on your goals and rebuilding your life. The right person will eventually find their way to you."
"You'll never find the right person if you can't let go of the wrong one."
"Love isn't finding someone to live with. It's finding someone you can't live without."
"And then my soul saw you and it kind of went, 'Oh there you are, I've been looking for you."
"One day, someone will walk into your life and make you see why it never worked out with anyone else."
"The flower doesn't dream of the bee. The flower blooms, and the bee comes."
"When it's time for souls to meet, there's nothing on Earth that can prevent them from meeting, no matter where each may be located."
"One day I am going to wake up, roll over on my side, and kiss the love of my life good morning."
"Don't fall in love with someone who says the right things. Fall in love with someone who does the right things."
"Someday, you will look back and know exactly why it had to happen."
"You don't find love, it finds you. It's got a little bit to do with destiny, and what's written in the stars."
"You attract the right things when you have a sense of who you are." — Amy Poehler
"Do not chase people. Work hard and be you. the right people who belong in your life will come find you and stay. Do your thing."
