Misconceptions of love
Misconceptions of Love

  • Love conquers all; if the relationship is tough, than you have the wrong partner

  • Love is static; once you fall in love, you get on a high and stay there

  • If it isn’t perfect, it wasn’t meant to be

  • You can’t rekindle passion; once love dies, you can’t get it back

  • There’s one true soul mate; if you meet the “right one”, you will live happily ever after.
