Many single adults break up a dating relationship because they loose the euphoric feelings which pushed them along in the early stages of the relationship. In my book The Five Love Languages: Singles Edition, I try to help singles understand that if they can learn and speak each other’s love language, they can keep emotional love alive.
It is not the euphoric state, but it is a deep sense of genuine love. Now, we are better able to access the relationship. Are we really suited for each other? Do we hold enough in common to build a life-long marriage? Now we can base our decision on reality and not simply break up because we lost the euphoric feelings.
