If Those Wrinkles Ain't There, Forget It— Slay Queen As She Flaunts Her Bare Bum / Abusive Love Ain't Love (an Abused Lady Finally Speaks Out And Lets Go) / An Open Letter To My Love: Ain't Worth Much Babe' But I Got You! (2) (3) (4)
|Love Ain't Enough by Mimzyy(f): 8:47pm On Mar 27, 2017|
I have discovered that love doesn't guarantee the success of a relationship. Love cannot help you stick to one person all years round, and on the other hand, cheating isn't always a product of not loving your partner. In fact, loving someone doesn't guarantee not falling in love with someone else.
Relationships work out mostly because of our head not our heart. It works out because of our emotional maturity, empathetic intelligence and self discipline because, time will come when you'll see more beautiful, handsome, romantic, intelligent, sexy, rich, curvy and God fearing people than the one you're in a relationship with.
In those times, love will not help you; self control will help you, emotional intelligence will come to your rescue and commitment will keep you going. With those characteristics, no matter how you feel for someone else, the person you're committed to will rank first in your life.
You think happily married people don't see better people than the ones they married? You think they don't feel funny sometimes? You think they don't catch feelings? They do!
But understanding that commitment is greater than feelings is the great arsenal that do destroy that impulse.
You can fall in love with anyone, but building a relationship takes absolutely more than what attracted you to them and takes more than love.
We are too fond of loving when it's convenient and sweet. We are too fond of loving when love is there but that can only last for just the first 3-6 months of the relationship. After then, you'll realise that the feelings have dropped, it's now your responsibility to make it work, not love's responsibility.
Relationships cannot be readymade. You have to build it and it's never always about love, it requires commitment and intelligence. On the long run in marriages, it's not just love that keeps them together forever, it's determination and commitment.
Everyone falls in love; it takes little or no effort to do that. But staying in love? Building a relationship? Only the strong and committed ones do that.
That's why we must find that one person and commit to that one, discipline yourself and bridle your emotions.
Building a relationship is hard work, it's like building a career, It's like pursuing a dream. It's always tough, at some point it will be so bitter but you can make it work by putting your heads together, you can scale through the trying time by being focus and committed.
The kind of love that attracts two people together is not the kind of love that will keep them together. Be emotionally strong and be self disciplined.

I can't imagine that someone in love can actually love another person. just thinking aloud
I agree with the rest of your point

You're speaking gibberish!!!! I don't understand you! You are not communicating.
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Young03(m): 9:25pm On Mar 27, 2017|
Love is just a mindset created by u alone

Op is right. Love without compatibility is like a house without pillars. Love is never enough

You lack sense
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by falconey(m): 9:36pm On Mar 27, 2017|
love or money or sex etc is never enough, all must come together and function.
I thought this a basic knowledge to all, at least to an adult.
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Dockybae(f): 9:40pm On Mar 27, 2017|
ItsQuinn:Why do you guys often use the 'don't fvcking quote me' talk. You posted something stvpid and I advised you. You are obviously too dumb to understand that this is a public forum and the quote button is there to quote and correct myopic entities like you and your irk who jump into threads without understanding what's all about. Now that I have defiled your order, what are you gonna do? burst a cap lock on my head? Gbaberun!!
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Nobody: 9:41pm On Mar 27, 2017|
Nice one from whoever wrote it.
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Nobody: 9:46pm On Mar 27, 2017|
I understand the message very clearly. I just want to get a sensible response to what I posted. I post for reaction purpose only. But Most Nairalanders are to dumb to get it.
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Nobody: 9:49pm On Mar 27, 2017|
I understand the post clearly. I am free to post what ever I want, how ever I like. 95% of my post are for reaction purpose only. It's not by force to make sense. I know you're too dumb to realise this

Benita27:You know love cannot survive or thrive without life's basic necessities.
While love can endure and hopes, it grows sick without life's water .
Nice to have you back in your original dress.
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Nobody: 10:08pm On Mar 27, 2017|
Then marry a mad woman
|Re: Love Ain't Enough by Nobody: 10:11pm On Mar 27, 2017|
For me love is always and forever enough to build and maintain a long lasting relationship.
Only people that don't know the true meaning of love would think that love is never enough.
