And they lived happily ever after...


Last night I went to bed at 9:45 p.m. It was Friday night and I made plans to go out with my friends but I cancel it in the last moment. I don't regret my decision, I fall asleep in 10 minutes or so. I had such a nice day and I was tired from a long walk in High Park and my yoga practice, who I did even it was a full moon day.

Before sleep, I watched on Netflix very interesting movie Silver Linings. I love it. Being bipolar myself I can identify with those crazy characters. The movie is a drama, romantic comedy, the plot and the ending are surprising and the actors: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro are fabulous. I recommend you to watch it.

As a every romantic movie it finishes with "...and they live happily ever after". I can tell you that is not a case, after longer time with your partner which you love, at the same time, you'll find her downright annoying. Being a woman is the problem.

To be married or to be in a long-term relationship, unfortunately, you must forget every romantic movie you have ever seen and accept the fact that you are with someone who knows all of your flaws and who will sometimes point them out to you.

A woman tends to tell you everything about everything. And she wants to know everything about you, too. She will drain all of your energy leaving nothing left for romance. Not to mention, she will kill the mystery. Simply she is making mistake putting you in the same category as her girlfriends.

Is this what all long term relationships are all about? Deeper communication! She will talk when she’s nervous, talk when she’s scared, talk when she’s bored and talk when she’s lonely. And the talking won’t stop. It might be cute in the beginning, but as a men, we need silence sometimes.

Communication is key in any relationship, but not everything has to be revealed. The romantic comedies are just like a fairy tales, but even when you have learned there are no such thing as happy ending, many of you still believe in the idea that once you meet the love of your life, you will remain forever or else it doesn’t count.

9 of 10 of all relationships are not going to last. Relationships have a definitive end date. You change and others in your life change too. Rather than seeing it as lost of time let give it a purpose. I think most of relationship served its purpose, and then went away.

And, they lived happily ever after...
