Love is as strong as death;
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;
The coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can the floods drown it;
If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would be utterly condemned.

Song of Solomon

I’m not sure you can define love, but that comes pretty close to what I believe about real lasting true love.

I think there is a difference between loving someone, or even being in love with someone, and having a true lasting relationship. Which isn’t to say you weren’t really in love with your ex boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse, just that maybe you were missing that little intangible thing that just makes it work.

Real love, the kind that lasts a lifetime, is more than romantic love. It is knowing the person inside and out. It is having both good and bad days. It is being the best friend possible, and it is realizing you are both human. We aren’t perfect, so its ridiculous to think our partner should be as well.

In my ideal world Mr. Right doesnt come home with flowers for no reason, or surprise me with a candlelight dinner at home. He takes Kenna out when I feel like crap, does the dishes, and occasionally opens doors for me. He thinks I’m sexy in my sweats, or scrubs. He fights with me, and sometimes even puts his foot down.

Perfect and romantic is boring. Give me a real man and real love.
