i fell in love: part 2

i seem to have fallen off my high cloud today.
loving a blog is not easy.
especially on these long lonely friday nights...
i guess i'll head out to gym and coffee.

but here's the question of the day:
how does one make love stay?

You can not force love to stay. Love should be taken care of with lots of care and respect. Perhaps than it'll stay.

That is a question I too want to know.

I have often thought that love is a state that is attained without much effort, but then must be maintained with great effort. I can't be forced but both people involved in a romantic love must be willing to want it to work and be willing to put forth the effort it takes to make it last. After the glow wears off, it becomes a conscious decision on the part of both people to maintain it. If both people don't want to continue the relationship, it loses momentum and it becomes something other than love.

You can't make love stay. Love has to stay of it's own accord. All you can do is nurture it and be tolerant and understanding so that it never wants to leave.

Once again, a tough question to answer.

I would beg to differ with some of the responses here. I think that love in itself does not go. It *does* stay but it changes. The idea of "being *in* love* is an illusion. When lovers part, they often say "we fell *out* of love". Where does it go then?

No, *that* love has changed. As other things in life, everything evolves. Love grows, deepens, and strengthens. If lovers part for a reason, often that love stays and becomes intrinsic and natural, hence the common line "you will always hold a special place in my heart".

It's all hard work to maintain the "glow" that should come from both sides, if willing. But it can be done.
