Okay…I was just scrolling on tumblr and I saw a post that said “Love is a feeling, not a decision.” And my immediate response was, “Um..that’s false.” But when I clicked on the comments, people were agreeing that love is in fact a feeling and not a decision, so I would just like to throw this unpopular opinion out there.
Love is a feeling for about a month, and a decision for the rest of your life.
If love was just a feeling, divorce would never happen, it would be strong enough to sustain relationships. You’d fall for every guy who whispered sweet nothings, who’s taller than you and has a nice smile.
Love is not something that you feel. You FEEL euphoria, you FEEL joy, you FEEL excitement. You CHOOSE love. After the excitement wears off and you realize you don’t like the way she/he chews, or you don’t like that he swears a lot or whatever other little thing they might do that gets under your skin, you have to CHOOSE that you still want to be with this person in spite of their quirks.
Hollywood has fed us this idea that those feelings of joy and excitement are all that love is. And that some big dramatic event happens that ends in tears and a loving embrace is true love. But that’s not life! When those big dramatic events happen, you usually want to die. Or you want to be alone. Or you question your relationship. Love is not “Oh I feel good around this person so I must love them!” No no my friends, love is the grunt work. It’s staying together in the valleys so you can get the peaks, can I get an Amen?!
This idea that love is just a feeling is why relationships aren’t lasting. Why we all give up so easily. Because if we don’t FEEL it anymore, then it must not exist. If we don’t FEEL it, then it must be over. This rhetoric is killing lasting relationship which is what many of us want and desire.
Now I’m not saying that you should have no emotions with the guy or girl you’re with. You should feel happiness and sparks and all that jazz, but just know that that is not all that love is. And when sh*t hits the fan, it’s not the sparks that will keep your relationship afloat.
This, of course, it my personal opinion.. what do you guys think?
:D Hey Miss Immortal!!! Can I request a fluff?! Chocobros catch their s/o staring at them, then s/o just smiles and tells him that he has a beautiful soul. <3 *heart flutters*

Noctis: Noctis has been fishing on the pier at
Galdin Quay for HOURS. The guys are getting tired, so they quietly excuse
themselves, leaving you alone with Noctis. At first, Noctis grumbles at losing
his audience, but then calms down when he notices that you are still sitting
just behind him, next to his tackle box, counting and sorting the different
lures that he has managed to collect during his travels.
eventually finish sorting the lures, you glance up at your prince- no… king!
You frown slightly at your persistent mistake- you always forget that he’s
technically the King of Lucis now… since his father had passed in the
Imperials’ attack on Insomnia. Your gaze softens as you fix your eyes onto
Noctis’ strong and regal side profile. You still can’t believe that he chose
you… that he wanted to be with you. It was just so surreal.
You don’t know
how long you just sit there on the wooden slats of the pier, staring at your
dear boyfriend, until Noctis yawns and stretches languidly with his arms spread
wide. He pops his joints slowly before shrugging a few times to get his blood
flowing, and you giggle softly at how adorable your young king is. Noctis’
midnight blue eyes immediately meet yours and he raises his eyebrows in
amusement at your spaced-out look.
“Hm?” he hums
his unspecified question. You blink and smile adoringly at your favourite
person in the world and lean forward to press a chaste kiss to his cheek. You
retract from him slowly and absolutely adore the light blush settling upon his
heart. You’ve just got such a pure and beautiful soul and I can’t stop falling
in love with you.”
widen comically at your admission before he turns his body to face yours before
leaning forwards, his eyes shutting blissfully just before his lips touch
yours. You both share a sweet kiss on the pier, and for once, Noctis isn’t
upset that his catch got away.
Prompto: You and the guys have just finished
dinner and are now idly partaking in your usual nightly wind-down activities.
Noctis is playing King’s Knight on his phone, fist-pumping to himself whenever
he manages to beat a difficult level. Gladio is performing a light workout
consisting of squats, push ups and sit ups. Ignis has just finished washing up
all the used cutlery and is now leisurely reading a magazine. You are seated
beside your sunshine boyfriend on the ground, and the two of you are leaning
your shoulders against each other, viewing the pictures that Promto took during
lighting’s good in this one!” Prompto turns his head towards you and grins, the
corners of his bright blue eyes crinkling slightly. You lean closer to take a
look at the picture display on his precious camera and find yourself smiling at
the shot he took of yourself and Noctis grinning and hi-fiving each other after
the conclusion of a battle.
really have a knack for this Prompto,” your praise your boyfriend. He blushes
at your kinds words- he always blushes when you pay him any type of compliment-
and turns back to his camera with a little giggle.
“Hehe, well… you know… the subjects of
the shot are pretty amazing so…” you frown as you notice Prompto’s shoulders
slump. You gaze at his side profile as he stares sadly down at the picture of
you and Noctis. After a few idle moments, you lean forward and pepper soft
kisses across Prompto’s jaw, making him gasp out of surprise. You shut your eyes
and focus on the feel of Prompto’s slight stubble against your lips and smile
as you feel him tilt his head to give you better access. You continue for a few
short moments more before leaning back from your boyfriend and opening your
eyes once again.
at you, gaze soft, camera still clutched in his hands. You offer him a soft
smile and brush some of his floppy blond hair from his face in a tender
gesture. You’re both quiet for a bit, just looking at each other- forgetting
that the others were milling around you, getting ready for bed.
“Why do you
always look at me like that? I’m nothing special,” Prompto smiles sadly at you.
You shake your head in slight disbelief, and look deep into those clear blue
eyes that you love oh so much.
believe someone with such a beautiful soul would think so lowly of themselves,”
you say, your voice slightly reprimanding. Prompto laughs awkwardly and you
continue speaking, “you’re amazing and I am so lucky to be yours.” You lean
forward and press your lips tenderly against Prompto’s, eyes open and staring intensely
You watch as
Prompto’s eyes tear up, as they clasp shut, and as he pulls you closer- his
camera in his lap- kissing you with more fervour then before. You pull away and
gasp for breath, and Prompto leans his head against your shoulder. His
shoulders are shaking, and you know he’s overwhelmed by your admission. You
bring your hands upwards to card through his hair- a comforting gesture.
“I love you,
my dearest sunshine.”
“I love you
too, my favourite muse.”
Gladio: Gladio grunts as he flops onto your
shared hotel bed at the end of a very long day. You take a page from his book
and flop down right beside him. Both of you are staring up at the generic
off-white ceiling, appreciating each other’s warmth in comfortable silence.
After a few peaceful minutes, Gladio lets out a sigh and sits up on the edge of
the bed. You remain on your back, but you let your eyes linger on Gladio’s
gonna go grab a shower before bed. Do you wanna go first? Or come with me?”
Gladio winks at his last suggestion. You sit up and slap him playfully on his
“I think I’ll
pass, you horn dog. You go do your thing- I’ll wait till you’re done.” Gladio
grins at you before pressing a sweet kiss to your lips and making his way to
the adjoining bathroom. You sigh happily, watching your boyfriend disappear
into the bathroom.
sure when your eyes shut, nor do you know exactly when you fell into a tiresome
sleep- but you awake the moment you feel the bed dip beside you. Cracking your
eyes open, you catch sight of Gladiolus Amicitia sitting on the edge of the
bed, wearing nothing but sleeping pants. You admire the garuda tattoo splayed
across his back and trace the intricate patterns up and down his back with your
eyes. Your gaze trails towards his damp, brown hair and traces the sharp lines
of his jaw.
find yourself gazing intently into Gladio’s curious, yet warm amber eyes. He
smiles sweetly at you, and your heart flutters at the intimate gesture- you
hardly ever get to see his unguarded smile. He’s got an image to keep up, after
you like?” he murmurs, his gravelly voice rumbling low in his chest. You nod
slowly, a blissful smile overtaking your lips.
back on the bed, turning onto his side and gathering you carefully into his
arms. You sigh at the warm contact of your cheek against his bare chest.
Letting your hands roam his back freely, you cuddle closer to your much larger

clingy tonight, aren’t we?”
You frown and
pull away slightly, “you want me to stop?”

Ignis: You watch in awe as Ignis works his
way around the portable gas stove with grace and poise. He consults his recipe
book and adds in just a pinch of salt before stirring the risotto he is
currently crafting. His hands are free of his gloves, and you watch his pale,
elegant fingers work their magic as your evening meal is being prepared. You
finally stand and make your way towards Ignis as he shut off the stove and
begins to dish out five servings of food.
“I feel bad
that I can never help you out with the cooking…” you admit quietly, taking two
plates of food being balanced precariously on Ignis’ free arm. Your boyfriend
of four years nods his head in thanks before turning back to the pot and
serving up more.
absolutely fine. I enjoy cooking for you all,” you glance at him after you’ve
handed the plates off to a rather famished Prompto, and don’t doubt the royal
advisor’s words for one second. The small smile of contentment on his face as
he served out the last of the risotto onto the final plate confirmed his love
of cooking for you all. You move to take two plates from him, but he brushes
you off gently when you reach for the second plate. You look up and lock eyes
with his moss-green gaze. “It’s fine. I’ll do it, you go and eat- I know you’ve
had a rough day.”
widen at Ignis’ astute observation. You were indeed having a rough day, what
with… that TIME of the month cramping your style and all (pun totally
intended). But you hadn’t mentioned your issue to Ignis or any of the guys- it
was slightly embarrassing, being the only woman in the group and all.
What did I ever do to receive so much love from such a beautiful soul?” you
say, your voice incredibly soft as you regard Ignis with wide, reverent eyes.
Ignis simply smiles down at you and quickly presses a chaste kiss to your lips.
me unending happiness, and a reason to give value to my own life outside of
being Noctis’ advisor.”
away from you and hands Gladio his plate of food before settling down onto his
folding chair. He waits until you are seated beside him, and silently urges you
to take a bite out of your favourite meal. You tear up at the wonderful
flavours that hit your mouth and you smile gratefully at Ignis.
“How is it?”
slowly, regarding your boyfriend with a tender gaze.
always.” Ignis positively beams at you before taking a spoonful of his creating
into his mouth and chewing. Your heart fills with an unquenchable warmth and
you find yourself falling deeper into Ignis’ juxtaposed suave and innocent
