When we think of love, we may have romantic idealistic notions of what we think it should be, and of what we want from it.
However, love is much more complex than a set of expectations being fulfilled in a destined way.
Love is also about weathering through the discussions in a compassionate, understanding way. Love is about understanding the other person without putting any of one's own perspective upon it, just listening and taking it in with the open mind that makes the heart want to know the other person's soul.
Love is about knowing that there will be moments when communication fails, and to weather through those times without assuming anything about the other's true feelings based upon that moment's situation. Love is longer than one moment's evaluation.
To summarize, love is deep, when it is to last. So reach into the core and look for the reasons why you feel you want to connect, and draw from that very deep well whenever you need to quench your thirst.
