(Just because you won their love doesn’t mean you stop the pursuit of their attention, feelings, and heart.)
Love, as a word, is a limited.
Throw it away.
Toss it out.
Realize, all these different ideas we try to cram into it are utter bullshit.
There are those who believe that it should be this passionate fiery feeling that causes you to rip the clothes off your lover in some hypersexual lust.
Then, there’s the simple belief that it’s a multistage kind of deal where you move from that outside and then transition into a deeper and more companionship that is more rewarding and fulfilling.
Regardless of how you define it, the trouble lays in trying to get there. And usually, it’s this struggle of keeping the relationship alive and exciting and emotionally satisfying for the other – not so much the sexual stuff – through just showing that you care and still strive to win their heart.
For my perspective, as a straight male, it’s all about keeping the chase alive.
