Dating someone vs being in a relationship
They are two people trying to make something together — never just two people who don't know how to be alone.The instability of relationships comes from the opaqueness of feelings.
People like to think that just because they know someone and love someone that their relationship can last the way a true partnership will. They are for couples who have waded their way through all the bullsh*t and landed on something stronger than just a relationship.
Because, just like with a handful of shirts, with a handful of men or women, you will tend to get confused.
While you are looking for your desired qualities in the shirt, sometimes, you may find some new ones which might take you by surprise. After all is said and done, you pay the price, and leave the shop. You just made a commitment to wear the shirt for the foreseeable future.
Those beautiful, romantic, futile emotional attachments can either dissipate into thin air, collapse with great intensity or mold into something more important, more evolved and more purposeful.
If Kim Kardashian can have a relationship in 72 days, she clearly never understood what it meant to have a partnership — and if you're going to get married before your relationship has evolved into a partnership, then obviously, you're doomed.
