Philosophy: Love

I used to think love was simple. I had this philosophy that was very neat and tidy.

You have to be in the same place, 
going the same direction 
at the same speed.
Fast forward and love isn’t so easy. That philosophy on love is definitely out of date. It applies to falling in love. Maybe finding someone to fall in love with. Being in love is much more than that. The place, direction and speed are all things that change. It is natural. It is good. They say change is the only constant. So after being with someone for years, one of those factors is bound to change. What then? Is love over? 

Nope. Love beats on. 

Love changes with time. Love evolves. Its the like that's the hard part to maintain. Once you fall in love with someone, that bond is hard to break. It is the little everyday build up that can break down the like. The like is the joy of the relationship. The heart of it all. 

So how do couples make sure the keep the like strong? To really enjoy each other. Here are a few links with some ideas. Anyone else have tips?

Each of us knows three things we can do to make our partner happier: clean the old fast food wrappers out of the car, seduce him before the kids wake up, and iron his T-shirts or whatever happens to easily and absolutely delight him. Name them - and do them, right now."
