"Love, the world suddenly turns, turns color." These are the first lines from Sylvia Plath's poem Letter in November. First off, let me say I am extremely thrilled to be writing this guest blog post! Honestly! And I want to say that love is one of my favorite things to talk about, but it is also one of the hardest things to write about! As Fitzgerald said, "There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice." In all the loves that I have experienced, they all give strength, and now I just want to share with all of you what I think that the best romantic love is. Now it isn't always straight out of The Notebook, or some romantic gushy movie that makes girls hearts melt, but it's still one of the best things in the world to those who are lucky to enjoy it :)

The Best Love Is: A Blessing. Joy. Happiness. Completeness. Knowing in an instant, a second. Being raw, open and vulnerable. It's pure. It opens your mind. It teaches you lessons. It gives you strength to carry on. It is not based on looks or status, real love isn't. You know it's right, when that love is right, things always find a way of working out. When you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want it to start ASAP. It is the melting of two people who compliment each other and highlight the other persons strengths, and helps them not really with what is to be perceived as their faults, but the weaknesses that they have that you do not. Love is knowing that they are your best friend and that you can tell them anything no matter what. You have trust in them. Love is ever changing, evolving, and when you know it's right, it is surely meant to last forever.
