Are you good at love or at being in love?

“Some people are good at being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part—sex all the time, midday naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation anxiety… Just the best sides of both people, you know? But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies disappear, the sex not so often, the tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness; the worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person by your side through all of those things… that’s when you know—that’s when you know you’re good at love.”

Then being good at love is accepting everything that happens & sharing that with each other while accepting that no-one is perfect but together life can become a beautiful journey where the two can see through the exterior of their partner & want to be with them no matter what. They support each other while still being able to love themselves in a positive way. Keep the romance in Love & respect each other for who you are. Not for who you want them to be.
