The Truth About the Love Quote
Anyway you look at it, people love to be romanticize. They just love it when their loved one reads them love quotes or professes their love for them with words. But, are words really enough to keep a relationship going. After all, loves only go so far and individuals who are involved with a person who is a habitual liar or someone who tells you how much they love you but then has a romantic affair with your best friend, is really not going to woo you with a simple love quote, are they? Absolutely not.
A love quote can help when there are actual actions that back up the love quote. For instance, let’s consider the relationship of Bob and Mary. Bob and Mary have been married for 10 years. Bob recites love quotes to Mary like “There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved. ~George Sand and “Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence. ~Vincent van Gogh. Yesterday, he told her, “I love you, not only for what you are, But for what I am when I am with you. ~Roy Croft.
Yes, it is true that these all sound nice but they’re only mere words. The fact that his mistress just called Mary to tell her about a 3 year affair and 3 kids born out of wedlock aren’t’ going to mean much to her when she thinks of the love quote that Bob quoted. Instead, it is likely to anger her simply because it wasn’t backed up by solid evidence and respect.
So, the next time, you decide to spout a love quote, make sure that you mean it, that you actually feel the way you say you do and that you are truly one who is honorable and ready to profess your love. Simply because words sound nice, but they are just words. It is words with actions that mean so much more.
Here are a few more tips to keep your love alive:
Make Time for your Loved One
Not only should you tell the truth to your mate, but you should also make time for them. Take them to their favorite play, movie or simply be willing to cuddle or rub their backs if they are in pain or need stress relief. By spending quality time with your mate and not expecting anything in return, you can improve your relationship tremendously.
Surprise them with a Sustainable Change
Do something nice to demonstrate you care about their feelings. If your wife’s pet peeve is that you never put the toilet seat down, then make a conscious effort to put it down. Really listen to their concerns and do something about them.
In conclusion, words and a love quote are nice but words combined with actions are even nicer. Always make sure that you can back up your words with sustainable changes and you’ll not only make your spouse happier but you’re find happiness as well.
