“Being in a couple is hard. And committing, making sacrifices; it’s hard. But if it’s the right person, then it’s easy. Looking at that girl and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world. And if it’s not like that, then she’s not the one. I’m sorry.”—Marshall // How I Met Your Mother (via mscainia)
“Only be with someone who you think you can learn from. They should be smarter than you in certain ways so that you can continue to grow and be interested. Above all, you should undoubtedly be proud that you are with them.”—Something my 10th grade history teacher told me about how he knew he wanted to marry his wife (via ambermozo)
“You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always actions that you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.”—
"if you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you often to see if you’re okay. who watches out for you and wants the best for you. who loves and respects you. don’t let them go. people like that are hard to find."
“The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people.”—Unknown (via katweenah)
“She wanted something else, something different, something more. Passion and romance, perhaps, or maybe quiet conversations in candlelit rooms, or perhaps something as simple as not being second.”—Nicholas Sparks (via ann-belle)
We all know those couples: they’ve been together forever, they’re crazy about each other, and they somehow just make it look effortless. What’s their secret? Here are the top lessons to learn from successful couples:
· They stick it out. Successful couples don’t bail the moment things get rocky. They know the value of sticking it out, letting tough times or arguments play out, and seeing things through to the other side.
· They are best friends. These couples aren’t just romantic partners, they are best friends too. Their relationship has deepened to the point where they have formed a bond that goes beyond just dating, and they’ve become each other’s closest friends. The trust and respect you have for your best friend makes for a romantic relationship that is iron clad.
· They laugh at life. Even though stress and hard times come their way, they find ways to laugh at it and find humor together. Being able to laugh at life’s tough situations shows that no matter what, you’ll get through it.
· They deal with stress. Rather than letting stress build up until it explodes, successful couples deal with it. They talk about it and find ways to work through stress, rather than letting it fester.
