We see it on television. Blair and Chuck. Ross and Rachel. Ted and Robin. It’s strange, but we all yearn for that great on and off again romance that’s all consuming. The kind of romance that feels like it’s a fairytale. The kind of romance that feels like it’s worth fighting for.
Sick isn’t it?
I’ve also been caught up in a story too, but there’s a few reasons why the tortured romance isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
There’s always something when it comes to you two. You’re finally ready to settle down with him or her. And then surprise, your toxic other half gets back together with that random person from your work.
To you, it just isn’t the right time, so you wait because you have faith that you’ll find each other in the end. But then something happens on your end, so you hit pause again.
Basically, it’s excuses after excuses until it really doesn’t feel the same anymore. Suddenly, you start putting up with douchey behavior because again, you two are meant for each other.
