Sometimes a quote can express love in a way our own words cannot.
When in love it can be difficult to make sense of your own feelings - feelings that are typically confusing and difficult to put into words.

Though it’s important to establish a natural way of expressing your love for your significant other, be sure it’s never forced. Trying to “force” a romantic exchange between you and your significant other will set you up for disappointment.

And speaking of disappointment, one important point to remember at all times is this: don't wait for your significant other to respond in some way. Do not have a problem with how they react. Hear your significant other and be fully engaged in every moment that passes. Loving isn't something which can be defined concretely. Only loving.

It's my hope that these expressions of love will be incorporated into your relationship to bring you and your significant other ever closer together. There are usually two pivotal moments in most relationships that dictate if the outcome is going to be heartbreak or "happily ever after."

But even then, no matter how deeply you and your man are in love, disaster could come in between. If at some point he starts losing interest, are you ready for it? Let's say he doesn't call back and that he gets emotionally detached. It seems like he's pulling away... do you know what to do?
