Falling In Love Requires Finding Someone With Our Kind of Weird
I’ve always been a fan of Dr. Seuss. He truly had a gift for doling out wisdom in a weird, wacky, and wonderful way.
And he nailed it once again with this quote.
All of us have our own quirks. The key to falling in love is to find someone else who embraces our weirdness and brings along their own oddities that match up well with ours.
As Dr. Seuss so eloquently put it, we “fall in mutual weirdness,” which is a great foundation for building intimacy in a relationship. Dr. Phil and Dr. Laura might use more formal language to describe the process, but the truth is the truth about love (and it's a little weird).
As Swiss-British writer and philosopher Alain de Botton said, “Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s ok with them.”
Maybe de Botton developed some of his life philosophy after a careful study of Dr. Seuss’ writings.So my hope for all of us today is that we find someone with the right kind of weirdness for us.
If you're currently in a relationship, then take some time to celebrate each of your compatible peculiarities. And if you’re still looking for love, be willing to embrace the idiosyncrasies of a future partner. Let's face it, there's something a little weird about love anyway. #drseuss #relationshipadvice #kurtstips http://goo.gl/RHdzeQ
