I can remember when I first met my husband, the excitement of meeting a new potential partner for life, all the giddiness of falling in love, the long talks, the magical sparks flying first kiss, the gazing into each others eyes. These feelings are ones that you would love to be able to just last forever. You find yourself ignoring your normal routine or schedule, forgetting things you have to do, eating more or less, realizing that you are all of the sudden spending less time with your friends or family. If you have ever been in love or are currently in that stage of life then you know the feelings I am talking about.
Isn't it a shame you can't keep that feeling long after the newness wears off? I believe you can keep that feeling, to a certain extent. I think there are different stages of a relationship and all of them offer good feelings. I guess if you kept that feeling forever you might not ever get anything done! I have now entered into the stage of love where I have gotten past the insecurities I had in the beginning and am now feeling a deep sense of comfort and security within our relationship. It has taken 6 years to get to this point. Our relationship has been an amazingly happy one from day one, despite a few disagreements here and there, but no knock down drag out fights, as with my past relationships. I think what makes our relationship work so well is the fact that we are able to communicate very well and talk things out to come to a compromise on things we may not agree with each other on. We both allow each other to be ourselves and have some separate interests. We have the utmost respect for each other and that is something I have never had before in my entire life, so it is a great feeling indeed.
The beginning of a new love relationship is magical, no doubt, but just be careful not to allow the emotions and intimacy to blind you and carry you away. I have done that too many times in my life and it ended up being one mess after another. The emotions and intimacy in the beginning can really make you feel as though it is automatically true love. Once the newness settles a bit then you can come back to reality and assess whether this person meets your requirements for true compatibility or not. Give it enough time before pouring your whole heart out to someone and let actions speak louder than words or emotions.
