If you believe everything you've seen in romantic comedies, you'll think that falling in love will lead to your perfect, fairytale life.

If you believe everything you've seen on sitcoms, then you'll believe all marriages end with unhappy husbands and nagging wives.

Well, neither portrayal of love is completely accurate.

Here are a few things that nobody will tell you about falling in love:

1. It Doesn’t Happen Overnight

It Doesn’t Happen Overnight

You might develop feelings for someone overnight, but you won't be able to form a successful relationship overnight.2

That requires a lot of effort.

In order to love your partner fully, you have to learn about their passions, hear about their interests, and see their flaws.2

If you do all of that, and can still say that you love them, then you know that your feelings are legitimate.

2. You’re Going to Fight about Dumb Things

You’re Going to Fight about Dumb Things

Even after you fall in love with someone, you're still going to have arguments with them.

It's impossible to date someone, live with someone, and see them every single day without getting annoyed by some things.

Of course, frequent fighting doesn't mean that you should break up.

If you two are meant to be, then you'll be able to compromise and move past your fights.

3. It’s Terrifying

Love is a little less terrifying after you meet the right person.

However, the scariness doesn't disappear completely.

After all, it's a big deal to open your heart up to someone.

You risk letting them cheat on you, disrespect you, and break up with you.

Love isn't all highs.

There are some lows, too.

4. You Can Give Each Other Bad Habits

You've probably heard that the right person for you will make you a better person.

While that's true, it's also possible for you to pick up some of their bad habits.

If you always see them drinking, then you might start drinking more yourself.
