Love Advice for Each of Us

I wrote this in a notebook a few years ago and thought I'd share it on here. No matter what your love life is like I think these are some great things to remember.
To those who are…. single
Love is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But if you just let it fly, it will come to you when you least expect it. Love can make you happy but often it hurts, but love’s only special when you give it to someone who is really worth it. So take your time and choose the best.
To those who are…. no so single/in a relationship
Love isn’t about becoming somebody else’s “perfect person”. It’s about finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.
To those who are…. playboy/girl type
Never say “I love you” if you don’t care. Never talk about feelings if they aren’t there. Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart. Never look in the eye when all you do is lie. The cruelest thing a guy can do to a girl is to let her fall in love when he doesn’t intend to catch her fall and vice versa…
To those who are…. married
Love is not about “it’s your fault”, but it’s about “I’m sorry”. Not about “where are you”, but “I’m right here”. Not “how could you” but “I understand”. Not “I wish you were here” but “I’m thankful you are”.
To those who are…. engaged
The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together but how good you are for each other.
To those who are…. heartbroken
Hearbreaks last as long as you want and cut as deep as you allow them to go. The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks, but to learn from them.
To those who are…. naive
How to be in love: Fall but don’t stumble, be consistent but not too persistent, share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand, and get hurt but never keep the pain.
To those who are…. possessive
It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else, but it’s more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you.
To those who are…. afraid to confess
Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you love has no idea how you feel.
To those who are…. still holding on
A sad thing about life is when you meet someone and fall in love, only to find out in the end it was never meant to be and that you have wasted years on someone who wasn’t worth it. If he/she isn’t worth it now, he/she’s not going to be worth it a year or 10 years from now. Let go.
