Why Real Relationships Shouldn't Imitate A Fiction Love Story


Here's how to make your own love story better than anything you've read about or seen on the screen.

Unless you've been living your life under a rock, I'm sure you've heard about such couples as Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde, Lancelot and Guinevere, and Mark Antony and Cleopatra. These are some of the greatest love stories of all time. The love and passion of these couples may have colored the expectations of women throughout the years when it comes to their own relationships, which is really a terrible mistake.

To begin with, look at the way these relationships ended. They all had very tragic consequences that were suffered and none of them got their happily ever after ending. That should be the number one reason that you don't look to these couples as examples of how relationships should be. Yes, they were all very passionate love affairs, but the events got all twisted and resulted in death at the end, and not just the death of the relationships. These couples either died from grief or killed themselves. Now, seriously, just how happy do those relationships sound?

What you might want to consider is to not compare your own relationship to those great love stories. You might want to write your own love story and make it even greater than those you've read and heard about. Real love stories can be just as passionate and romantic as the great ones, but you can have an actual happy ending. All you have to do is live in the present and look forward to the future. Don't dwell on things that may have gone wrong in the past or may have been what you thought was perfection. Nothing is perfect, not ever, and you need to also understand that if you're going to have your own great love story.

Romance doesn't have to be tragic to be meaningful. Go with your feelings but also inject a bit of common sense and realism into your relationship. Those great love stories also had an element of insanity in them and you'll see this if you read them carefully. You can have all the romance in your relationship that you can handle. All you need to do is be with the right person. The relationship you have can be a happy one and that happiness doesn't need to be fleeting, like in those great love stories. You can have happiness in your relationship all the time. Just make the right choices.

You'll notice a common theme in these stories is that one or both lovers belonged to someone else, whether through marriage or betrothal. Everyone knows that getting involved with someone that is already attached is a bad idea and if you don't believe that, then you're a very naive person. You're also not very serious about having a truly happy relationship. Most likely, you want to feel that passion of the forbidden even though it won't end well and certainly not in your favor.

Think clearly about the choices you make when it comes to love and romance. In the end, you can simply write your own great love story and it will better than anything you've ever read or seen on the big screen.
