3. When looking for romance, my best advice is
STOP! Dont make a long list of traits you hope for, don't try and force something that isn't there, and stop living to find that someone. When you stop looking and find your own happiness, that's when you will find real romance.
4. My favorite love story (real or fiction) is my grandparents. I've blogged about them before, but their love is so real. They have this crazy over the moon still in the honeymoon phase after 50years love story. They support each other and fight for one another. Tonight, my grandma hid in the bathroom to call me. She wanted to remind me that Grandpa turns 70 tomorrow. He isn't happy about it and she wanted to make sure he felt loved. She wanted to remind me to call him in the morning so he would smile. She stayed by his side all summer when he was in the hospital and gives up so much to be by his side everyday. Gives up seems wrong when describing them, because the love they have and all the wonderful things they share far out way the bad. They have a marriage I aim for. Their love is true and perfect.
5.The best relationship/love/dating advice I ever received Find the person that no matter how crazy life gets or how crazy they drive you, you can't image life without them. And then no matter what fight for that love and cherish every moment. It's too easy these days to give up, to get divorced or move on from each other. So, don't let it be easy. Fight for your love and your relationship. Life and love aren't easy or fairy tales. It's hard work to have a relationship sometimes and in those moments of doubt and pain, Even anger, if there's still a little light of hope, fight. I stayed and together we fought for our marriage. Because of that I know we will grow old together.
