Hello I ‘m having problems with my girlfriend. To begin with she is best friends with my best guy friend. He says that he used to to want to go out with her, but now he doesn’t. His reason is that they are good friends and he doesn’t want them to break up and lose their friendship. She seams like she wants to go out with him but she doesn’t believe he wants to go out with her.When we are all toghter she acts like she going out with him. She always has her arm around him, or something like that. It feels like my friend still likes her romatically. Then when me and her are alone she is alwys huging me and doing all kinds of great things for me. I can’t figure out wheter they are just really good friend, if she wants to go out with him, or what other possilbities.We have only been going out for a little while, but it feals like I love her. is this a superfical love? I think about her all the time. I right her poems, and always complement her. One, am I coming on too strong, and is it possible to fall in love in such a short amount of time? Thank you
Many people confuse sexual attraction with true romantic love. The reason for this is because, romantic love includes feelings of sexual attraction. But, there is much more to true love than simple sexual feelings.The main way to distinguish true love from simple sexual desire is: TIME. True love lasts more than three or four months, and often lasts indefinately. True love is based on a long-standing satisfaction with the companionship of the other person. True love includes an attraction to the other person’s personality, an attraction which usually lasts indefinitely. True love includes the desire for association, which often remains indefinitely. True love fuels ongoing sexual interest. Frequent contact strengthens your attraction to the other person. Your feelings grow and blossom over time. Your feelings persist.I hope I have helped clarify the difference between love and lust for you. And, I hope that, after reading my list, you realize that you have found true love.
