The Truth About Forever

“He wasn't the type for displays of affection, either verbal or not. He was disgusted by couples that made out in the hallways between classes, and got annoyed at even the slightest sappy moments in movies. But I knew he cared about me: he just conveyed it more subtly, as concise with expressing this emotion as he was with everything else. It was in the way he'd put his hand on the small of my back, for instance, or how he'd smile at me when I said something that surprised him. Once I might have wanted more, but I'd come around to his way of thinking in the time we'd been together. And we were together, all the time. So he didn't have to prove how he felt about me. Like so much else, I should just know.”

Q: My boyfriend say he loves me, but he calls me only twice a week and prioritized his friends over me?

Q: My boyfriend say he loves me, but he calls me only twice a week and prioritized his friends over me? 


Is he slowly increasing the time he shares with you, socially and emotionally? Relationships usually start hot and heavy, but then you need to get back to a realistic sense of closeness and time apart. Even married couples require space. 
Maybe the key here is whether you two could talk about these tough issues. Do you laugh together and share good times or do you always feel abandoned and unappreciated?

Healthy relationships always call for a balance between time together and time apart between the couple. Balance your life, school and/or work, friends, a hobby, exercise. Don’t just focus on a "love life."

The Moon Song - Karen O


The Moon Song
Karen O

I'm lying on the moon
My dear, I'll be there soon
It's a quiet and starry place
Time's we're swallowed up
In space we're here a million miles away

There's things I wish I knew
There's no thing I'd keep from you
It's a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I'm safe and we're a million miles away

We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I'm
Okay and we’re a million miles away

We Are Fashioned For Love

“Most of us are not so strong. What is humor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms? Or the memory of a brother's smile? Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory and our great tragedy.”
 ― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Animals Have Emotions, As Well

For the most part, the one emotion that is easy to spot in the animal kingdom would be grief. Grieving behaviors are varied, although there’s a common thread to them all. It does not seem to have any evolutionary advantage to it. Grieving animals tend to deviate from the usual behavior. Some cease eating, some would even leave the pack for days on end, others go back to the carcass to protect it from scavengers. Since such a behavior does not seem to come from an instinct for survival, or actually have any purpose to it at all, it can be assumed that animals display grief for the same reason we do: lost love.
