We all are looking for someone to call our own; a soulmate with whom we can share everything. In fact, sometimes the thought of finding our better half is the only thing that keeps us going. But it is easier said than done.
Our soulmate is one of the most important things that will happen to us during our lifetime and nothing important ever comes easy.
Sometimes, people give in and think that they might never find their true soulmate. But that’s not how the story goes. You will meet many people, who would be close to being your perfect someone. And even though things might not have worked with them, they were there for a reason. They came into your life and were your partners for a different but important reason every time.
There are many ‘near misses’ you will meet before finding your soulmate and here is a list of the kinds of love you will experience before meeting The One:
1. THE FIRST ONE
Everybody keeps talking about how unforgettable the first love is. And it is quite like nothing else you’d ever experience again. Remember your first roller coaster ride? When you had no idea about how anything was supposed to go. And yet, you braved everything and every single moment was pure, unprecedented bliss.
That’s the magic of first love, when you have no inkling of how anything goes but you are ready to face anything, so drunk on your very first love that no challenge seems daunting. Even the thought of being without them is enough to leave you sleepless. But don’t worry, with time you’d learn that nothing is irreplaceable and that you need to be ready for your true love when it comes to you.
2. THE PROBLEMATIC LOVE
This love would be another great start, but over time you’d start facing so many difficulties that you’d start doubting the idea of love itself. But that doesn’t mean that you will give up. This kind of love is very important! It teaches you the importance of putting yourself in front of anything and everything else. Even though love means sacrificing yourself for the happiness of others, you need to learn to draw the line. And this experience will teach you how.
3. THE SAFE LOVE
The familiar kind of love is when you find yourself with someone who thinks the world of you. This love would be something that will give you comfort and security when you need it the most. But, however much you’d want to love them back; it will not come naturally to you. It will end but it will give you the stability that you needed at that time of life.
4. THE WHIRLWIND ROMANCE
This would be the love you always dreamed of, the one which you saw in the movies and the novels. The passion would be nothing like ever before. You would have no idea when it started and where it is going. But soon you’d realize that too much of a good thing is also bad. Just like a matchstick it will flare up quickly, burn brightly and then sooner than you expected, fade away.
5. THE ALL CONSUMING UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
And finally, when you’d be thinking that there is no hope for love in this world, you’d find the one. There will be no second thoughts or what ifs because just one look in their eye would be enough to bind the two of you together forever. And then everything would make sense, every step which was needed for you to reach there would be justified.
