You need more than love.

Love is a strong emotion like anger. Anger clouds your judgment and so does love.

Animal-Bird-Martinet-Le-Faisan-Hupe-de-Chine-Pheasant1Contrary to popular culture, you shouldn’t make any long-term commitments based on the overwhelming rapture of love.

Love is a nice feeling to have for someone you are committed to, but you’ll feel other emotions during a long term relationship. Love isn’t a reason to make yourself miserable and stay with someone who isn’t right for you, just as anger isn’t a good reason to part ways.

In my romance novel, I’m currently writing, I don’t want to gloss over this idea. The myths about love can be damaging, and I want my love story to be more honest and genuine.

Romance isn’t just a feeling; it’s finding a worthy partner.
