There’s no feeling like it.
Your eyes meet, your hands touch, and you’re suddenly consumed with a new partner.
You live for the present, you dream of a future, and your heart outraces your head.
All you know is that you wouldn’t trade this feeling for anything in the world. If this is how strongly you can feel, why ever settle for anything less?
Then it happens.
You start to fight.
You learn he’s jealous, or controlling, or irresponsible, or unethical.
He starts to pull away.
You begin to walk on eggshells.
You don’t know where you stand.
You crave the pure feeling you had before, but you spend more time worrying than feeling peaceful about your relationship.
And then it ends.
He tells you he needs space.
He tells you he wants to see other people.
He tells you it’s not right.
Or, who knows, maybe he doesn’t tell you at all. Maybe he just fades away.
All you know is that you let him into your heart and fell in love.
Or did you?
