- Love is important—but too many couples focus on the passion and forget the friendship. Passion fades and there are many ways to feel love.
- Believing in soulmates is a myth that leads to a lot of unrealistic expectations about what your partner “should” do and who they “should” be.
- Love is tough. You won’t always be happy and problems don’t magically disappear.
- Successful relationships start with knowing yourself and knowing what you want.
