Loving someone is hard work, not because it is a duty, but because it demands that we enter the battle between good and evil that lies within each of us, and that we seek to overcome the evil with good. In short, love compels us to consider the other person’s need before our own. For starters, sweet, random, romantic gestures are a good way to display your gratitude. Writing love notes, and leaving flowers help to signify that you want your lover to know how much they are thought of when you aren’t around.
Also, be willing to dedicate time to them as much as possible. Relationships blossom when couples are able to take a real break from it all and give each other a bit of focus. Even if this only means a couple of hours of time together weekly, take it. It will all be well worth it in the long run, especially if you are hoping to spend a significant amount of time with this person. When you go from constant games and let downs to someone who makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world, it’s truly a breath of fresh air — a relief, if you will. Whatever brings your joy, do it! Once you do, you will find yourself surrounded by people who share your interests and open up your world to the possibility of finding that special someone!
