Is Your Relationship Practical?

Is Your Relationship Practical?

There isn’t much about that love is practical, except, of course, for the fact that it practically drives you insane. There are many ways that people approach looking for love. For most people, love finds them and not the other way around. Usually when a person finds themselves with the lasso of love around them, they are thinking about anything and everything, with the exception of the practicality of their new relationship.

If new love is hot enough to consume every bit of waking attention and focus, people rarely care if it meets any other criteria they may have had before it showed up. It’s easy for people to get so caught up in the new perfectness of this familiar feeling, especially since they are experiencing it with somebody who has done nothing but make them feel great.

All this abandon that you throw into the wind while in this altered state takes flight like a kite on a windy day. But much like the kite, as soon as the wind dies down a bit, your rational mind comes back down to earth, sometimes a bit tangled, and not as pretty as it did when it went up.

As soon as the chemicals of new love start to level out in your brain, and return to you, your sanity, you naturally start evaluating the logistics of your new situation, and sometimes make startling discoveries.

The person we found so irresistible that you couldn’t keep your hands off of really can’t keep their hands off of you either; even in the foyer of fancy restaurants, in front of anybody unfortunate to be standing there. At first it was a rush and an extreme compliment, but now that the fog has cleared and you have located your modesty, that same behavior is nothing more than embarrassing.

Practicality is a bit of a buzz kill, but you cannot ignore its logic when it comes to relationships. Just because the guy you met in that, dark hole in wall, bar made you laugh so hard that beer shot out of your nose, doesn’t mean that you would be willing, or able to ignore the fact that he is a regular at that bar, and everybody there knows his name. Even if you were willing to walk on the wild side with him for a while and frequent that bar with him, eventually you would realize how impractical it is to go to work with a hangover, every day.

Now there are exceptions to every rule, even the rule of practicality. If you find yourself in a deliciously impractical relationship, it can be okay to make the decision to go forward with it if it gets you out of a rut that you may have slipped into, or just to get your heart pumping again. Just make sure you realize the limitations of this kind of relationship, and don’t let yourself get taken too far from where you actually want to be. A relationship that serves no other purpose but to bring happiness and pleasure can be intense and wild. Just make sure to check in with your practical side every so often so you don’t find yourself floating too high for your own comfort.
