re·la·tion·ship [ree-ley-shuh n-ship] – A particular type of connection existing between people related to or having dealings with each other. I mean, how ridiculous can one get? “Connection existing between people”?! What are we, Siamese twins? “related to” Um, no. Gross. “Dealings with each…

Relationships can never be perfect. You can never force your partner to be faithful in the same way that a normal relationship should be. What's important is that at the end of the day, you find each other side by side and you're happy knowing that he/she is yours. We need to enjoy the relationship while it's there, for if you waste your time in doubts and insecurities, you'll never appreciate how wonderful it is to fall in love.

“Every good relationship has a reacher and a settler. The one person reaches out for someone out of their league and the other person settles for someone below theirs. The settler is never worried that the reacher would cheat.” — How I Met Your Mother

“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.” — Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS ARE LIKE RUNNING IN A LONG DISTANCE RACE. AFTER A WHILE EVERYONE IS PRETTY OUT OF BREATH, BUT THE END RESULT IS WORTH IT.  Long-distance relationships have an urgency that couples in short-distance relationships can only dream of. Every second together counts. Every shared meal is savored; every kiss must be good enough to last weeks, maybe even months. Have you really lived, after all, if you haven’t searched for your beloved’s face at an airport gate, cursing the flight delay because you have only a weekend before you must part again? We should all be so lucky to seal in our memories the image of our lover on our doorstep, suitcase in hand, clothes wrinkled from a long trip, skin emanating a scent that we’ve forgotten but suddenly comes rushing back, bringing with it the recollection of the last time, which was too long ago and too brief, and ended with a tearful goodbye on this same doorstep.

“A beautiful life does not just happen, it is built daily by prayer, humilty, sacrifice and love. May that beautiful life be yours always” — Dennis Castillo
