Love isn't about finding the perfect person, but about seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.

The greatest relationships are the ones you never saw coming.

Relationships are like books. It takes years to write but second to burn.

The best relationships are the ones that can be experienced in silence.

Find someone who knows that you are not perfect but treats you as if you are.

Relationships end, but love stories are timeless.

A real relationship is where two people who know that they are not perfect do not give up on each other.

In relationships, the little things are the big things.

To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship.

Relationships are worth fighting for, but sometimes you can't be the only one fighting.

True love is about growing as a couple, learning about each other, and never giving up on each other.

The best proof of love is trust.

A strong relationship requires choosing to love each other, even in those moments when you struggle to like each other.

A great relationship is about two things: First, appreciating the similarities, and second, respecting the differences.

Relationships don't always make sense, especially from the outside

Trust is the fruit of a relationship in which you know you are loved.

Every relationship has its own language, and true love knows how to speak it.

Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than hurt yourself trying to put them back together.

An exceptional relationship is where yesterday's fights do not stop today's communication.

Love is not about how many days, months, or years you have been together. Love is about how much you love each other every single day.

No road is long with good company.

The best relationship is when you can act like lovers and best friends at the same time.

A relationship without trust is like a car without gas, you can stay in it, but it won't go anywhere.

Communication is the lifeline of any relationship. When you stop communicating, you start losing your valuable relationship.

Don't rush into any kind of relationship. Work on yourself. Feel yourself, experience yourself and love yourself. Do this first and you will soon attract that special loving other.

Relationships include fights, jealousy, arguments, faith, tears, disagreements, but a real relationship fights through all that with love.

Every relationship has its problems but what makes it perfect is when you still want to be there when everything goes wrong.

Respect is as important as love in a relationship.

Choose your relationships wisely. It's better to be alone than to be in bad company.

Love is not about possession, it's all about appreciation.

Relationships are complicated, but when the right people come together, the complications disappear.

You can be in a relationship for two years and feel nothing; you can be in a relationship for two months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or of love.

What comes easy won't last, and what lasts won't come easy.

Every relationship starts with a feeling, is maintained by loyalty, and is destroyed by distrust.

A good relationship is with someone who knows all your insecurities and imperfections but still loves you for who you are.

Forgiving is easy, trusting again is virtually impossible.

Despite the arguments, the ups and downs; you truly are the love of my life, one who I absolutely do not want to be without.

Sometimes the best way to stay close to someone you love is by just being friends, even if it hurts.

Perfection in a relationship is not about the absence of arguments, but about the ability to resolve them.

Sometimes two people have to fall apart to realize how much they need to fall back together.

In my relation, I pray we never find that comfort zone. I hope we are always pushing each other to grow, learn and strive for more.

One of the most beautiful things in the world is seeing a smile on a person's face and knowing that you're the reason behind it.

Don't talk, just act. Don't say, just show. Don't promise, just prove.

We can improve our relationships with others by leaps and bounds if we become encouragers instead of critics.

True love has a habit of coming back, often in the most unexpected ways.

A part of you has grown in me. And so you see, it's you and me together forever and never apart, maybe in distance, but never in heart.

If you can't figure out where you stand with someone, it might be time to stop standing and start walking.

Assumptions are the termites of relationships.

A true relationship is someone who accepts your past, supports your present, loves you and encourages your future.

The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.

No matter how busy you are, if you really care, you will always find the time for someone.

Relationships are like a walk in the park. Jurassic Park.

The best relationships are the ones where neither partner requires the other to be something they are not.

The moment you start valuing yourself, the people around you will either start respecting you or they'll drift away. Either way, you win.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Relationships, marriages are ruined where one person continues to learn, develop and grow and the other person stands still.

The couples that are meant to be, are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart, and come out even stronger.

Never leave a true relationship for a few faults. Nobody is perfect, nobody is correct, and in the end, affection is always greater than perfection.

We may love the wrong person, cry for the wrong reason. But one thing is sure, mistakes help us to find the right person.

I'd rather have bad times with you, than good times with someone else. I'd rather be beside you in a storm, than safe and warm by myself.

We don't meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason.

Don't be someone's downtime, spare time, part time or sometime. If they can't be there for you all the time, then they're not even worth your time.

It's not about having a perfect relationship. It's about finding someone who matches you and will go through everything without giving up.

A true relationship is two imperfect people refusing to give up on each other.

Relationships aren't for getting things. They're for giving things. Never fall in love to make yourself happy. Fall in love to make the person you fall in love with happy.

The greatest gift you can give to someone is your time, because when you give your time, you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back.

Relationships are not exams, you don't have to cheat. If you're not happy just leave.

Never chase love, affection, or attention. If it isn't given freely by another person, it isn't worth having.

Growth in love comes from a place of absence, where the imagination is left to it’s own devices and creates you to be much more than reality would ever allow.

A relationship is like a house. When a light bulb burns out you do not go and buy a new house, you fix the light bulb.

You can’t just give up on someone because the situation is not ideal. Great relationships aren’t great because they have no problems. They’re great because both people care enough about the other person to find a way to make it work.

Good relationships don’t just happen. They take time, patience, and two people who truly want to be together.

Never force someone to make a space in their life for you, because if they truly care about you, they will create one for you.

Real love is not based on romance, candle light dinner and walks along the beach. In fact, it is based on respect, compromise, care and trust.

When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.

Being in a relationship isn’t about the kissing, the dates or the showing off. It’s about being with someone who makes you happy in a way that no one else can.

Never lose yourself while trying to hold on to someone who doesn't care about losing you.

Don't bring baggage from an ex-relationship into your next relationship..unless you want it to be a short trip.

A silent hug means a thousand words to the unhappy heart.

In the end, we don't remember the most beautiful face and body; we remember the most beautiful heart and soul.

If you want to know where your heart is, look to where your mind goes when it wanders.

You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

The relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.

Healthy relationships are built on trust and a commitment to communication without reservations or secrets.

Be with someone who inspires you and makes you be the best version of yourself.

The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is not what we say or what we do, but what we are.

The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands.

Keep the ones that heard you when you never said a word.

Every relationship needs an argument every now and then. Just to prove that it is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.

No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together.

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

The best relationships are the ones that press on through the darkness, they are the people that look at each other and see the break and repair in place of the fault.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with everything they have.

It doesn't matter who hurt you, or broke you down, what matters is who made you smile again.

Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings.

You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.

It's possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems, and that in time, the grief lessens. It may not go away completely, but after a while it's not so overwhelming.

Lasting relationships can't be forced. Anything that is forced is likely to break or come loose.
