In general, serious relationships have always been portrayed as fairytales with happily ever afters. You are made to believe that true love is supposed to last forever. As beautiful as it sounds, it’s far from truth. I am not denying the magic of happily ever after; it’s great if someone has that. In fact, I hope you do. But at the same time, having short term relationships is not all that bad. Actually, it’s good. Why?

Sometimes, Forever Is Not Possible. But You Got To Dive Into It.

Not every person who comes into your life and swipes you off your feet would come with a promise and availability of staying forever. Nope. That’s the bitter truth. But does that mean you don’t get to taste how it’s like to spend time with that someone? Of course not! Life is all about meeting people and enjoying the experience, even if it comes with all sorts of risks. Not always do you have to mingle romance with attachment. Sometimes, it can just be romance. Sometimes, it doesn’t have to be so serious. Sometimes, you just have to enjoy what you have today.

Write Your Own Story.

Paint your own love story. Your colors, your rules!

There are absolutely no rules when it comes to relationships and dating. You make your own rules. You do what makes you happy as long as it is not at the cost of somebody else’s. It is not necessary that a special connection can only be created over a long period of time. Sometimes, it just clicks and you dive into it. Because you are here to write your own story! And if that story has many short term relationships, so be it!

Always talk to each other about what you want from the relationship.

At the end of the day, it is not about long term and short term relationships. It is only about the happiness and comfort of the two persons involved in the relationship. Always try to be clear about what you want out of a relationship and communicate that to your partner. It might even keep changing with time, but the key is communication. You don’t want someone looking for long term relationship stuck with you who assumed it’d be a minor fling. Be honest and live like a boss!
