We all dream of a fairy tale love story.
The magic. The prince to sweep us off our feet.
We envy those whose love stories seemed like they were meant for classic literature. And we look for ones ourselves.
And sometimes that's what's wrong with us.
We expect our love story to be this epic fairy tale. About impossible odds that love will conquer. That anything less than grand is unacceptable. Sometimes we let go of good people just because our story was simple. Not worth telling.
But love stories aren't always grand.
They won't always be perfect.
And oftentimes, they are not true.
The only time it will feel real, that it will feel epic, that it will be perfect, it's when you know that you're with the one. You could meet that person on a chatroom, in one of your commutes, a friend of a friend, and it would not matter how your love story goes. What's important is you have a love story.
And that it is true.
That is a fairy tale.
