Love ain't enough!
Feeling love for someone is not enough to make a relationship work. There has to be a few other things that bring satisfaction in a relationship. When I am seeing someone I ask myself:
Is this a lot of drama and work, or is it fun and joyful?
Do I feel respected?
Do I feel valued?
Do I feel heard?
If it's more tough work than joy, and if any of the last three questions are answered with "no," I say it's time to walk and not look back.
The world opens up... when you do.
Oh, oh, can't you see? Love is the drug for me. ~Bryan Ferry
