I think the truth is that you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really know what love is until youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve found it, which means even if you think you know you may not. The thing is, if it is love then there are no doubts and no uncertainty. There may be an uncertainty about your future and how youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll handle certain things but there is no doubt about being together.
When you find the right person you will do whatever you have to do to be with that person. You will travel miles to see them, you will give up just about anything and above all else you will do what you have to not to miss another second with them. You wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t question this or that, there will be no question.
Am I speaking from personal experience? Yes and from others IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen as well. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve thought IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been in-love with guys before and looking back I realize that it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t anything close. I liked them a lot, I cared about them but eventually there just wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t enough there to sustain the relationship.
There was one ex-boyfriend that every time I found myself alone or coming out of another unsuccessful relationship I decided for the millionth time that my ex was the love of my life. I was sure about this off and on for too many years. Never mind that I really didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know him anymore or that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d only dated for a year as teenagers. He was always the one I went back to longing but the feeling was never mutual.
The moment I met my fiancÃƒÂ© I stopped thinking about anyone else in that way and it was all about him. When I fell in love with him I had to move in and I never wanted to be away from him. At first when we dated I traveled to visit him but very quickly I just realized being with him was more important than anything else and that the rest would eventually fall into place.
He too had to go through a lot to be with me, it was never easy and looking back I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe we went through what we did. We both are in awe sometimes, how did we make it so far? We never could imagine not being together and the sacrifices were always worth it.
