Melanie Iglesias: Love
I don’t think anyone can love too much. Its just a matter of drawing the line between crazy infatuation and consciousness. It is important that you don’t go overboard and flood your partner with too much cheesy words or actions as it’ll become boring. Trust me, you’ll soon realise that cheesy won’t work anymore once the relationship becomes stable. Also, do give your partner some space. Come on, you don’t need to tell your partner that you love her all the time to get that message across.
Be committed but allow freedom as well. To me, its essential that I express my love through other means than have to tell the person how “too much” I love them. Although, occasionally its necessary, no doubt. You know, just to reassure your partner. You can’t say that you’ve expressed all the love in the world because there will always be more holes to fill in.
Similarly, someone once told me that you can’t possibly love too much because there will always be more to give. You’re bound to miss out on something for we are human.
And its true.
In this case, “loving too much” does not seem to be a dilemma. Well, because you can never give enough. Just listen to yourself. You should not worry about not showing it often. That’s how you keep the drive in the relationship. People frequently have this idea that telling your partner things she wants to hear like “I love you”, showering her with gifts, calling her every day and so on and so forth is considered as loving too much. In reality, its not true.
In fact, too much of that will be come off as “clingy” and not “loving too much”. There’s a difference and you have to know how to separate those two from one another as one will lead to the downfall of the relationship and the other, better understanding and communication. So, you see its actually quite important to know when to love and when to stop as the consequences might be quite painful.
I used to love too much, in the clingy sense, and I ended up falling out with her. To my horror, I literally drove her away. Since then I’ve learnt how to be moderate. You can’t walk away for too long because you would just end up get her thinking that you are insincere in keeping the relationship.
Remember its not all about showing how much you love through your words, actions and thoughts. Its about giving her room to breathe. Just walk as far as it would take her to miss you and love her to the extent that she’ll ask for more. Not too much, not too little but just enough to keep her desiring.
