I think most people want the fairytale.
The locked eyes across the room.
The steamy love scenes.
The reasonable arguments over misunderstandings.
I think most people want their whole relationship to feel like the beginning.
A honeymoon phase that never ends.
But love, like life, has phases.
There’s a beginning, middle, and end to it all.
The honeymoon phase matures to a more seasoned love.
Or it fades when the thrill is gone.
Rough patches buff and refine love into a more honest state.
“Perfect matches”, see flaws in their other half and decide if the love is worth fighting for or not.
I think, people want the fairytale.
The honeymoon that never ends.
I think, that’s what does us in.
In the end, everything ends.
So a new phase can begin.
