How to Find True Love and Avoid a Train Wreck

I love love.

And, based on the enormous volume of music and movies and books produced on the subject, not to mention the amount of Valentine’s Day candy and cards sold every year, we all do.

But we want the real deal. Not the fake stuff.
Because the fake stuff only leads to pain.

Just ask Manti Teo.

We want the kind of love I talk about in Love Letters, which, I guess not surprisingly, turns to be one of the all-time most popular posts I’ve written to date.
And how can you know if you’ve found the real deal?

In my case, it took me a while to realize that my husband was “The One”. So I know that it can be difficult to discern matters of the heart. But, I also believe that as we pray and ask God for guidance,  He gives us all the signs and signals we need to keep us headed on the right track.

Here are my thoughts on how to avoid a relationship train wreck.

What are your thoughts on finding true love?

Have you found it or are you still searching?

Please share in the comments.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

  1. What I have learned over the span of our 34-yr. marriage is this:

    Love is an act of volition. There are times I do not feel like loving and there are times I am not loveable.

    Every day, it is a choice to love. Every day, something will try to kill the relationship. Every day we must stand firm. We must pray for our spouses.

    As we ‘grow’ and age, the seasons of life and of love do, indeed, change. Yet not one of them is more or less than any other.

    1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. ♥ ♥ ♥

    • So true. “Every day, it is a choice to love.” Thanks for sharing your wisdom here. And congrats on 34 years of marriage!
