14 best love quotes

Love quotes always have a place in our lives. From the early years of Sharpie-ing cliché quotes onto our binders to the cringeworthy days of customized MySpace profiles with just-angsty-enough love quote .gifs, and from picking the perfect quote for your wedding vows to leaving a handwritten love letter on your wife’s pillow, love – and the quotes about it – make the world go ‘round.

Some are cloying, some are sweet, some are tender, and some are deep. Sometimes they strike as the most beautiful pair of sentences ever written, while on other days (and in other relationship statuses) they can destroy us, reducing us to a shaking pile on a tissue-strewn floor. Sometimes they fill us with the warmest sense of renewed hope and faith. Sometimes they say in a mere handful of words exactly what we, overwhelmed by our indescribable depth of love, struggled to sum up to our beloved.

Reading them as a single woman, copying one down as a husband, receiving them as a loved girlfriend, and being whispered one by the man in your life is a moment that transcends the present. You are interacting with the souls of centuries gone whose words still remain, for the deep stirring in the heart of a young man today is unchanged from the kindling of romance in a young man a thousand years ago. Gathered here are fourteen of some of history’s most enduring, moving, relatable, powerful, true, and inspiring love quotes.

8 Quotes to Help You Through Long Distance Love

long distance love quotes

In a long distance relationship, there are so many obvious factors that stack the odds – and people’s opinions and pity – against you. There are the hundreds and even thousands of miles that separate you from the one you love. There are the weeks and months that stretch unfathomably on until the next time you see their familiar, smiling face and hug their warm body, the one that you’ve missed having in the other half of the bed so much that some nights, you’ve woken up with your pillow still damp from the tears that unknowingly squeezed out even as you slept.

And during the seemingly endless countdown for which you both know the exact number of remaining days and hours, friends and family offer trite and naïve words of pity, doubt, and comfort: “You’re wasting your beautiful youth! Break up and find someone here who can be with you every day like you deserve.” “I don’t understand why you’d subject yourself to this waiting, but if you think it’s worth it….” “Oh, honey, remember that absence makes the heart fonder. Only two months left!”

Let There Be Light!

categories: Funny Dates, Love Quotes

This post is really just for fun.  I went through a phase a few months ago where every time I flipped on a light switch, I would say “Let There Be Light!”   I think it was actually legitimately funny the first few times I did it, but I literally kept it up for two months which started to drive Olga a little crazy so I’ve toned it down a little bit recently.  And of course, when I turned the light off I would say “And Then There Was Darkness.”  Eva saw me doing this and started copying me, as kids always do.  I caught it on film one time, so I thought I would share with you all.

And here’s my attempt to make this video somehow relate back to love and relationships…  Take a moment today to flip the switch ON in your life and relationship.  Just like a room brightens up when you turn the light on, so too will your relationship if you are conscious about looking at life with the light on.

LET THERE BE LIGHT!!

We are kicking off a series called “Love Quotes Recited By Eva.” Why? Because here at Datevitation, we are fans of quotes about love.

This will be a regular series so get ready for lots of insightful love quotes recited by Eva in the weeks to come :)
