Put that same love that you have for the Higher Power into self first and let it trickle about your surroundings. I think folks just want a quick fix relationship built on the smallest love and it never last or work out the way we want it too. Why build a house on a sand dune. It will eventually crumble.
Maybe there are reasons why we can't find love:
2. Every time you get burned, you develop emotional debt, especially if you don't deal with your issues.
3. Fear of success or of failure. The expression, 'be careful what you wish for' is real because many people are afraid to be happy and successful.
Real love is something that happens slowly and lasts for a long period of time, perhaps even for life
Love is out there, its just hidden and very rare to find these days like a diamond in the middle of a busy street. You just have to be willing to walk out into that busy street and risk getting hit by what is out there and pick up that diamond. In other words, once you've found that someone you love and they love you back, you both are taking the risk of going through the emotional punching bag. What are your expectations when you enter into a relationship? Do you approach every relationship as if it were going to last forever, or do you let things develop slowly over time?
SIDENOTE: Loving and leaving people is never good, especially for the person getting left behind. If you do this frequently, you aren't really ready for a mature loving relationship with anyone.
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it - Ivan Panin
