True Love Isn't ... Romance

True love is not the same as romance. When a couple is together, they can almost hear violins playing sweet love music. When they kiss, emotional fireworks go off inside. Whenever he speaks sweet words of love and affection or cares for her in kind, romantic ways, she feels like a princess. Whenever she gazes lovingly into his eyes, he feels stronger and more important than anyone else. Candlelight dinners, soft music, and starry skies bring on intense romantic feelings in both of them.

Romantic feelings are wonderful in a close male/female relationship. God wired us to experience these feelings in special relationships with the opposite sex. Perhaps you have enjoyed the inner warmth and fireworks of romance in a dating relationship. But the excitement and warmth of romance cannot be equated with true love. Romance is a feeling; true love is much more.
