Relationships: Reality vs Expectations

by Byron Hicks

Relationships are something many have written about. And real life couples struggle to keep up with the best appearances.

But it’s a battle of reality versus expectations.

The truth isn’t as peachy as what is written about it. So let’s talk about some relationship stereotypes we can do without.

Brightside posted an article entitled “5 Simple Relationship Truths You Need to Know” and we couldn’t agree more. In the same light, we’d like to talk about some points as well.

Not all relationships begin with incredible infatuation. Therefore, it is worth paying attention not only to passion and sparks but also to a sense of security and comfort that you feel (or not) next to a person. For a strong relationship, it is much more important if you can laugh together and trust each other.

Each person has their own interests and hobbies. Don’t think that if you love opera and your potential significant other is fond of rafting you will have nothing to talk about and will be unhappy together. On the contrary, personal interests will make you more attractive in the eyes of your partner.

It’s true right?

You don’t have to be 100% alike when it comes to personality and interests. And it’s not all about the fireworks or the swelling romantic music.

Love is the grandest thing in the world. It is hardly perfect and that is what makes so wonderful. To love and be loved is such a wonderful experience.
