Are you hopeful that you'll find true love? Are you willing to do anything to get that love? Would you be willing to settle for less than true love? Would you be okay with a mediocre relationship and marriage? In this article I'd like to touch upon some of these areas. I'm sure that many people would be happy being in a situation without such intense passion, as long as they have someone that cares for them and who will be there. Someone that they can count on for anything. Not everyone wants the same things in a partner. The most important thing to remember is that you shouldn't settle for less than what you want.
Do you know what you're looking for in a match? When you know what you're looking for in a partner, your journey should get that much easier. Knowing what you want in another person doesn't mean that everything you desire will be handed out to you and you'll find your soulmate within the week. But, at least you'll be on the right track and you won't waste your time or anyone else's. I feel that it's so important to know what you want in someone, so you don't waste people's time. Nothing's worse than being strung along while someone figures out what they want. You should know what you want and what you don't want in another person.
If you're the type of person that's comfortable finding a match that is suitable for you just enough, then by all means, make sure the other person is aware that you feel that way. Maybe that person feels the same way and will be very happy knowing that you both want the same thing. I'm not saying that I feel it's okay to go into a situation or stay in one for that matter, in which you'll have a loveless life together. I'm merely saying that if you prefer not to be on the roller coaster ride (like they describe in Parenthood), then be happy with the path that you're choosing. If you're looking for a passionate, intense love life, consisting of being each other's absolute best friends, having amazing sexual chemistry, and being able to share your passions and interests with each other, be prepared for the high highs and the low lows. Make sure you know what you're getting into and be happy with your decision in being with that person. Don't leave when things get tough or there are bumps in the road. Stay passionately in love and have great make up sessions. Either way, know what you want, go after it, and don't settle for less. If you settle for less, you could be miserable or bitter later on in life. The last thing you want in life is to be unhappy with the choices you've made. Making major life decisions is not something that should be taken lightly. The thought shouldn't be hanging in the back of your mind whether you settled for someone or not. You should be confident and sure about what you're getting into. There are never guarantees for love and relationships.
