Love is not a tangible object, so it isn't something that we can actually grab on to. It is a feeling that occurs when two people believe that they want to be together and share intimacy. This rarely happens instantly, even though individuals may say that they knew they loved each other the minute their eyes met. Real love is something that happens slowly and lasts for a long period of time, perhaps even for life.
Finding a lasting relationship can be difficult, especially if you have an idea of the perfect partner in mind. It will be hard for others to measure up to your ideal, since everyone has faults. Even if you do find someone that measures up to your ideal, your partner may decide that you don't measure up to his or her own. When this happens, the search for the ideal partner begins all over again.
Jumping headlong into any relationship may be considered foolish for several reasons. You may think you love someone immediately, but after a few days of intimacy, the reality of the situation can sink in. You may discover that you really don't know much about the person and that can be frightening. The intensity of a passionate relationship may quickly diminish, leaving you wondering where the love went. Well, real love didn't go anywhere because it wasn't there to begin with. Don't confuse love with lust. Love is caring deeply for someone and wanting to spend time with him or her on a regular basis. Lust seldom lasts for any length of time, and it often leaves people feeling empty and used. People who regularly find themselves in this type of relationship may believe that real love is so hard to find.

Find Compatible Relationships

Finding real love is possible if you take the time to get to know someone. A real lasting relationship can't be formed instantly. Doing things together is a great way to find out if you are compatible with another person. Sharing sports, antiquing, love of pets or any other activity is one way to get to know another person. Spending quality time with them and talking about their likes and dislikes, can help you discover what you have in common. If you take it slowly, you may find true love in your relationships with other people, the kind of love that will last a lifetime.
