The answer to that question is EVERYTHING. And therein lies the problem because it’s so hard to get it right. It might seem easy to you, but your comprehension of love is based on your exposure, your experience and your expectation. It’s such a relative thing that the words you use rarely elicit all the emotion involved. So, in theory, someone could love you totally and completely from their perspective but it might not feel complete to you. And what’s worse, you can’t fix it. Too often, I think we settle for something because it’s close….kind of like taking pepsi because the restaurant doesn’t serve coke. Come on…you really want coke. When it comes to love, it’s better to wait and get it right. Then you might have a chance.
