Calvin Harris & Alesso feat. Hurts - Under Control
freedom is a lonely road
But when it comes down to actually handling the nitty-gritty of relationships, we’re given no pointers… or worse, we’re given advice columns in women’s magazines. Yes, it’s trial-and-error from the get-go. And if you’re like most people, it’s been mostly error. But part of the problem is that many unhealthy [Read More…]
a kind of simplistic article, but makes sense… :)
The first thing they said was that you always have to be thinking of ways to make your partner happy. Little acts of love and kindness that make them feel good, that let them know you’re thinking about them.
you have to consistently be thinking of ways to respect your partner, their ideas, opinions and tastes.
They also said that you should let the hard times bring you closer together, not the opposite.
My personal opinion is that these two people were just right for each other. I think we could all (and are all) capable of doing these things, but it just depends on having the right person to do it with. It’s difficult to be selfless for someone you don’t really love…
We are told that happy marriages are based on good communication, shared values, a sturdy support system of friends and relatives, happy, stable childhoods, fair quarrelling, and dogged determination. But in a survey of 470 studies on compatibility, psychologist Marcel Zentner, PhD, of the University of Geneva, found no particular combination of personality traits that leads to sustained romance — with one exception: the ability to sustain your “positive illusions.”
funny :) illusions are the answer :)
The single of Prague could soon find salvation for their loveless woes with the introduction of carriages dedicated to “singles” on the Czech capital’s underground network.
"In the metro you can already read and learn, so why not find a partner?" said Filip Drapal, spokesman for Ropid, Prague’s transport company. "We want to make life more pleasant. People today have no time to meet.
“In the winter of 2011, photographer and furniture designer Ana Kraš flew from her home in Belgrade, Serbia, to Los Angeles, where she’d been sent by a European magazine to photograph artist-musician Devendra Banhart. Within five minutes, he asked her to marry him. Despite her initial impulse to flee, she stayed—and the two have been together ever since.”
too cute :)
Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true.
The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.
again, scientifically, about love… this time from a psychologist’s point of view.
Love perhaps best can be seen as a sort of a prism – looking at it in different ways reveals different faces of the same phenomenon. For example, one face of the prism might specify components of love, such as intimacy, passion and commitment; another face might specify the stories of love that give rise to such components, such as stories of fantasy, mystery, theatre, or even horror; yet another face of the prism might show the role of cognitive processes, such as intelligence, creativity and wisdom, in the formation and maintenance of successful loving relationships. This article examines some of the faces of the prism, which I observed in a series of stages over the course of a research career.
My whole life I have been searching for love. At a personal level, after a number of false starts, I have found it. In my research – initiated when a love relationship in my personal life was failing – I have tried to come closer to understanding what love is, how it develops, and why it succeeds or fails.
Sometimes I feel that by not marrying, I made too great a sacrifice to my work….

"I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years. But there was one, a beautiful bird, pure white with light grey tips on its wings; that one was different. It was a female. I had only to wish and call her and she would come flying to me. I loved that pigeon as a man loves a woman, and she loved me. As long as I had her, there was a purpose to my life."
regardless of the great work you do… life is incomplete, purposeless without this weird, unclear feeling…
There is no intensity of love or feeling that does not involve the risk of crippling hurt. It is a duty to take this risk, to love and feel without defense or reserve.
