True love has been a matter of discussion for millennia. Cynics generally deny it exists, whilst hopeless romantics believe that everyone should seek out their soulmates. With science now demonstrating that true love is not only feasible, but also long-lasting, we’ve decided to investigate the psychological factors that cause love to bloom or fade. When it comes to love, the best way to think of it is as a verb. Love is a dynamic force that necessitates action in order to thrive. “We often spend our time thinking about what our spouse feels about us or how the relationship looks from the outside,” Dr. Firestone stated. Even while it feels lovely to be loved, we can only truly feel our own loving feelings for another person, not the other person’s feelings for us. We must conduct loving behaviors in order to connect with and preserve the love feelings within ourselves. Otherwise, we might as well be living in a dream.” Accepting that the only person we have any true influence over in a relationship is ourselves can be difficult at times, but it’s actually rather liberating. As a result, we have the option of engaging in intimacy-destructive behaviors or taking activities that reflect feelings of love, compassion, adoration, respect, and kindness.
