What Makes a Love Story Epic?
Is it the chase, the wait, or the pure chemistry between two people?
I’m very much a hopeless romantic. I believe everyone should have an epic love story, at least once in their lives. Maybe it is from binge watching 80’s/90’s romance movies all weekend or coming to realize that we live in a totally different world now where this doesn’t happen often.
Opening doors, writing notes, and ringing a door bell all seem to be things of the past. But, maybe that is what makes everything worth it, right? Doing all the small things for your person daily builds a wonderful foundation for a relationship.
Relationships are a lot different in today’s world. Most people meet over dating apps or social media. If it isn’t from the internet, it’s from someone trying to get into your pants within the first five minutes of knowing you. It just isn’t the same. I think there should be that awkward phase of getting to know each other. There should be a period of waiting, the anticipation is what makes it so much more exciting, in my opinion. If you play all your cards in the first week, what else are you going to do?
Being a hopeless romantic, I expect so much from my other half. And he does not disappoint. From the first time we hung out, to this day, he opens the car door for me. When would be on opposite shifts, he would always leave me a note saying something sweet (I still have all the notes saved in a box). We have had to spend a lot of time apart (thanks military) and I think thats what makes us appreciate the time we have together so much more. I feel like I need to soak up all our time together because each second counts. When we are apart, even when we get busy during the days we always say good morning and goodnight if we can. I think its the little things that matter most.
Your love story doesn’t have to be some Romeo and Juliet love story to be epic. It can simply be the person that showed up in your life unexpectedly and does all those little things to show their love for you.
