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
You might develop feelings for someone overnight, but you won't be able to form a successful relationship overnight. 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. If you do all of that, and can still say that you love them, then you know that your feelings are legitimate.
