KATHMANDU, Aug 11: People who are single usually don´t want to be and people who are involved, often wish they were single again.
It is easy to be in a relationship but to sustain it with the same passion and dedication is the tough part. There are many factors that impel one to fall in love at first sight.
One may call it imagination or even intuition when one falls in love without even knowing the person properly. However, I think it’s not worthwhile falling in love at first sight.
Being single is fun but being in a relationship elates the happiness but both have their pros and cons. For example, a single person can do whatever s/he wants.
Spend time with friends and family, sleep in normal hours because you don’t have to attend calls and texts, eat whatever one wants and there will be no one to stop you.
Similarly, some pros of being in a relationship is that you will never be lonely, you can always count on the one person in your life, take help from them when you need one, and most of all, they are always there when you need them and they care about you.
Many of us may be enjoying the ongoing relationship status and few of us may be worried of getting the relation perilous. Perhaps, some of us have had the experience of breaking up at least once and, I must say, it’s the most painful experience.
Relationships are very sensitive in nature. They can be easy going at the beginning but to keep up to that is the main challenge.
This reminds me of girl who was infatuated with a boy during our first year in college. He had good oratory skills and possessed good knowledge about things. Both of them got closer to each other after some time and within a few weeks, they were dating.
After a while, because of small misunderstandings, they broke up. I think misunderstanding is one of the main causes for break ups.
What we need in a relationship is trust. Trust, faith, feeling of respect, few common grounds of passion, allowance of liberty in some cases and above all love is much needed in a relationship. If you have all that, the journey will not only be rosy but will last for a longer time.
