A cocaine addiction is cheaper...and probably healthier for you in the long run.

Love is a mental illness.

My parents have been together 40 years. FORTY!

There is not a day that goes by where my mom doesn't think of finding a way cut the brake lines and make it look like an accident while my dad drives through Salt River Canyon. After your kids are somewhat sufficient (like when I wasn't running in front of tractor-trailers after my puppy,) I think the love is gone. It's time for the father-person to move on. I really believe lots of people stay together out of obstinacy. "I want to see this farker go first. I already have my mourning dress picked out. It's just a small matter of alterations." My dad is pushing 80, but the longevity of my family is disturbing. My grandfather made it to 90, his brother is in a nursing home and he's almost 95. I can't imagine living that long. I don't want to, because I want to be buried in a suit that's not made out of hamster pelts, because you KNOW that's coming next.

Kids have a way of making someone try past the romance high.

What if I were to tell you that love only lasts 12 months?

I would dismiss you as a hack and wonder what you are selling.

That could be my brain on fast food.

Ned Stark: What if I were to tell you that love only lasts 12 months?

I would agree with you. I've been head over heels in love for a lot longer than a year, and nothing feels like it has "worn off" yet. We've spent a lot of time together for two years now, but we've actually been in love since 1988. We lost touch for nearly 20 years, but she makes me feel as amazing today as she did a couple years ago when she came back into my life, and as she did in 1988 when I first saw her and knew I had to know her.

Boil it down to all the science you want, but I know how we feel, and it's not just "compatible" or high.

Let the grumpy people who aren't in love dismiss it all they want. I feel GREAT, and I have for a long time. I don't predict it changing any time soon.

And my valentines day random CSB:
I once offhandedly mentioned to an ex about 6 months into the relationship how the insane state of love only lasts about a year because while it is thrilling it's also a state of annoyance. I simply prefer the deeper calmer comfortable state of love over the "OMG I'm in LOVE!!!" state; Anyways, it turned into a fight somehow because she believed I was making an excuse for not exerting effort in the future (she was insane). She unceremoniously broke up with me 6 months later and was cheating on me the last two months with a guy she is now married to. What a biatch, but thank god she broke up with me.
