Did you exaggerate your love feelings during dating?

people used to say I can't live with you, I will die if I can't live with you.... etc etce... during the initial period of love. have you uttered such words to your love? Do find those words meaningful now?

I never said those exact words, but I did convince myself I was in love when I wasn't really. I think "love" in the early stages of life is often intense. Now, I don't have to utter those words. It's just a given. My husband and I know exactly how we feel about each other and don't have to say it out loud all the time. In some ways, doing means more than saying now.

well said cheekysuze. It is true that during the initial period we look at only the good aspects of the partner as love/lust blind our eyes at that time. When we start living together the intensity may fade, but that does not mean the care we have for the partner reduces. This time it is REAL LOVE though not so interesting as before
