When you put someone you love so high up on a pedestal that you can’t see their actual eyes, nor their truth, you might end up disappointing yourself as well as your beloved.

It’s important to keep your perceptions realistic, especially when you’re at the start of a passionate love affair — it’s so easy to believe in fantasies, but reality is the only way to go.

If a partner offends you with a shocking statement, it can be disappointing, but give them the benefit of the doubt: This moment in time can be the perfect subject for a heart-to-heart conversation in the very near future.

Do your eyes deceive you if you see tangible progress or something coming to fruition in your emotional world? Chances are, what you see is accurate!
