4 Harsh Truths About Love People Learn Too Late

We are taking a more philosophical approach towards this topic about love because many of you have requested something deeper. In this video, we talk specifically about the feelings of being in love, and not just merely being in a relationship with someone. You can be in love with someone, but not necessarily love them. The difference is when you are in love with someone, you get all these fuzzy or intense feelings around them, whereas loving someone does not necessarily include that. In this video, we cover 4 interesting facts about love that you need to hear about. Some may even surprise you!

In today’s video, we want to share harsh truths about love that may be unpleasant to hear and explore some of the reasons why dating and romance can be so difficult.
