The topic of true love has been debated for centuries. Lisa Firestoneco-author of Sex and Love in Intimate Relationshipsoften says that the best way to think of love is as a verb. Love is dynamic and requires action to thrive. As Dr. In order to connect with and sustain those loving feelings within us, we have to take actions that are loving. Otherwise, we may be living in fantasy. We are in charge of our half of the dynamic.

Greg Brady met my teenage sister around, and they started dating. The act playing in my head was accordingly detailed and entertaining that it lasted 45 minutes. Another day, I imagined myself as the actress who played the seventh Brady sibling.

A long, long time ago, back after I was young, unencumbered, and had the luxury of spending hours ahead hours thinking about myself, I attended a family wedding where, at a few point between the rehearsal dinner after that the ceremony, I fell deeply, unreasonably in love with a person I would never really know. Eli was tall, a bit imperious, and alien. His whole demeanor seemed to me at the time to contain equally a quality of mystery and a kind of irresistible magnetism that made it impossible for me to assume clearly. Twice that weekend, as we talked and flirted, I felt enraptured almost to the point of vomiting. I flew across the ocean, after that for two months we hiked, swam, played backgammon, ate falafel, did erstwhile things. There was little soul-baring before opening of hearts. But that was okay with me. Genuine emotional closeness couldn't compare with the love so as to grew out of my daydreams. My memories of those months are a softly lit montage of romance after that adventure.
