17 honest notes from people who are in successful relationships
Whatever we are sold about what budding romances and healthy relationships looks like by Hollywood, the real thing is always going to be different. In reality, we can be kind and affectionate to one another, but the grand gestures aren't all that important, and we can often focus too much on the people who got away from us, rather than those we should care more about.
The real important things end up being small moments of love, and they are rarely pure, conventional platitudes. Instead they are simple, funny, and often a little bit strange. Honesty, of course, is key - which you can definitely tell from these love notes real people have left each other.
