In other words they do not fit our own definition of love. This will create tension in our relationship. What we can do is to focus on their positive characters more than their weaknesses
Before loving someone we should be whole first. Partnership is not codependency. It does not mean that an individual should be half of another. It means that you are a strong individual that is happy even by yourself and does not depend on another human being to make you happy. That kind of relationship is toxic because you expect too much from another to be happy. It can become a burden. Happiness comes from within and it should emanate from you.
There are millions single available men in this world and all you need is one. So dont ever get stuck with the wrong man. Love yourself enough to detach yourself from someone who does not deserve you.
Above all, do not pretend affection; be true to yourself at all times. Do not love only because of how you feel at the moment. Loving is commitment, because even if the desire and lust is gone you are still there to stay. Friendship, respect, trust and love is the foundation of a lasting companionship.
