Trust the person who is emotional and open, who never holds back and tells you if something is wrong or argues passionately. They are an open book you can read easily.
Beware of the quiet ones. The ones who have a blissful smile on their face and never stands up to you, the ones who never reveal what’s on their mind. The ones who can destroy you in the blink of an eye and never look back.
In desperate love, we always invent the characters of our partners, demanding they be what we need of them, and then feeling devastated when they refuse to perform the role we created in the first place.
The only love that won’t disappoint you is one that can’t change, that can’t be lost, that is not based on the ups and downs of life or of how well you live. It is something that not even death can take away from you. God’s love is the only thing like that.
