Finding the Right Form of Romantic Love
We all love someone and love something about them. It may be their smile, kindliness, laughter or generosity. All humans love something about another human being. The only problem is that not all of us know how to express our love properly or often enough. That’s why when someone we care about does something that means a lot to us we can’t help but share our love with them.
Saying yes to our partner is a big part of expressing love, but loving our partner doesn’t mean saying yes all the time. True love involves a wide range of positive and sincere emotional and psychological states, from pure bliss to the most sublime human emotion, absolute happiness. Saying yes when you don’t really feel like it is an unhealthy practice. Instead, love means just showing your partner how much you care about them and that you accept their differences and idiosyncrasies. It doesn’t mean you agree with everything they do, but you acknowledge their humanity and their ability to create magic, and you believe in their potential for brilliance.
True affection is often expressed by acts, such as hugs and kisses, rather than words. Words are great when you’re talking, but if you want to connect with someone deeply and intimately then physical contact is crucial, especially in the beginning. This forms the foundation of romantic love. By expressing your feelings, you’re creating a connection with him/her, as well as an intimacy that will endure as you build on the relationship. Emotional and physical intimacy forms the basis of trust, a bond between two people that allows them to communicate and spend time together in meaningful ways, as well as create an emotional bond between the two of you that increases your well-being.
While all love is positive emotions, some forms of romantic love are less positive. If there is a significant degree of fear or pain between you and the other person, those negative feelings can impact how well the two of you build the relationship. If the other person is not being respectful, or is abusive, then those negative emotions can be transferred to you through the intimacy you have with that other person. Thus, it is important to recognize the type of affection you have to express before you express it to another person.
Of course, there are also times when sharing all your feelings will not be beneficial. There are times when you must choose to focus on one another, rather than all the other negative emotions you may feel. This form of romantic love is one of the most powerful bonds you can form with another person. It is when you are focused on each other and feel all the love you have for one another, rather than the hurt you might have felt, that true romantic love is revealed.
When you have found true love with your partner, it is important to remember to keep things upbeat. Keep your feelings up and make sure your partner knows you love them. Expressing love is easy when you know the right ways to do it. When you are able to communicate your thoughts, feelings, and ideas to your partner in a loving way, they will understand and respect you for it.
