Five people share with us the best and most romantic advice they ever got for their love lives.
Loving someone is meant to be continuous, unending, unfading… forever.
But sometimes along the way, it feels a little underwhelming, it does not feel as starry or as dreamy as the fairytales we see on TV.
We hit rough patches and we have to fight to keep what is ours, to hold on dearly and not let that precious gift slip.
At times like these, we need encouragement, a little word of advice to help us fan the flames of passion and keep us going on the path of love again…
Some people took to Reddit to share some of the wisest advice that positively influenced their love lives and we have decided to share all the ones we found really insightful.

A user shares from her mother’s experience with selfishness and how she changed to being more selfless.
“When my mum and my dad were on their second separation, she was out with her best friend and was venting about all the things she wanted him to change.
