However, when we fall in love, our minds don't just see a person – we see the person that we perceive.
When we're in love we don't just perceive the person that is in front of us, but what that person means to us. But when we first fall in love we overlook these truths and usually choose to ignore them all together. First off, if you're looking to spend your life with anyone, then you should firstly accept the fact that you're dating someone who comes with just as much baggage, just as many issues and just as many nasty habits as everyone else.
Even when two people feel completely at home with each other, the fact remains that there is always a possibility that it may not work out.
This isn't something that should discourage anyone from dating or from trying to make things work.
Many times it does work out and you do end up spending the rest of your life with the one you love – it does happen. But the fact is that, statistically, there is always a possibility of the relationship running its course.
