Llove is what makes the world go round. People fall in love every day, every minute and every second of the year. Lives are forever changed, changed, created, and re-created by stumbling upon the greatest mystery of all. Love. Love reduces Distance. Whether these distances are geographical or more subtle, they gently disappear with Love.
Here is a list of the 8 most obvious reasons why we fall in love & How it can last forever :-
1 – Physical attraction :
Most likely the first hook that brings people closer together. This powerful attracting magnet stands little chance of holding on unless mental stimulation and physical appearance coexist as the body ages, inevitably.
2 – Shared Belief System :
Be it religion, politics, culture or anything else. It gives a sense of knowledge. When two people share a belief system that allows them to largely view Life through similar perceptual lenses, they are likely to easily align with the same Truth. The biggest challenge is that over the years, people change, develop, grow and maybe start to see the same Life through a slightly different lens. Acceptance and affection are two assets that can ensure a couple grows together peacefully.
3 – Personal Affinity:
Same tastes for Life, activities, hobbies, jobs etc… Same interests tend to bring people together because humans are somewhat programmed to do more than they should. So naturally people who do similar activities are attracted to each other. This relationship can last as long as both grow up by maintaining the same tastes by expressing their individuality through it or by accepting that someone may indeed try something new.
4 – Comfort :
The feeling of feeling at home. A sense of belonging. The first human need is a sense of belonging. This gives him a great sense of comfort and security. The day when two people fall in love with the ease of comfort, they enter a world that gives them familiar surroundings. It has the potential to persist even though it severely limits individual growth because it creates a relationship of interdependence more than interdependence.
5 – Sexual attraction:
Pure physical desire. Where many may see superficiality in this attraction, others see the ability of two people to know themselves better. Indeed, to know the Self is to allow one’s intimacy to live in complete freedom. The many taboos that society places on sex limit the possibility of this kind of relationship lasting. However, when it does, Sex is an experience as a way to connect body, mind, and spirit together.
6 – Social validation :
The social aspect gives a sense of acceptance, success, belonging… As mentioned above, the human need for a sense of belonging tends to make him focus on the outer aspects of Life. Social Status provides a way to be validated and included in a circle that vibrates with certain dogmas and certain lifestyles. Starting a relationship based on outside parameters hinders its lasting potential. The main challenge for lovers to find their own greatness beyond what the status frame gives them.
7 – Chemistry :
Certainly the least understood & one of the most transformative. The very often spoken & even more often unexplained chemistry says a lot about the subtle power of Love. As long as the mystery remains the main attraction, chances are good that the relationship can survive because there is no need for real proof. It just exists.

8 – Soul Confession:
The last but certainly not the least. Regarded by poets, as truest, it is said to be eternal, unconditional & free. Soul recognition is seldom seen as seen when the benevolence of the heart is brought to the Light. This relationship is called a connection. It exists and cannot exist. Indeed, once brought into the conscious mind, it becomes as integral a part of a person’s Life as one of his most important Truths. The nurturing “diet” of this magical relationship is respect, connectedness, trust, kindness, compassion, understanding, listening, caring, forgiveness, and communication all together.
To Love is to burn your Soul with a match called Kindness. ~ Soul
