Love is patient. If you love the person then you will wait… but that depends on what you’re waiting for.
In my experience, I’ve come to learn that love is about giving and not really receiving. It’s about what you can do for the other person, the choice you make and sticking with that person.
There are different “types” of love – philial, erotic, familial, puppy, agape – which indicate various relationships and desires. The type of love you have and its level will determine whether or not to bother waiting.
If you’re not sure whether or not to wait for someone who isn’t sure if they love you, I’d advise you ask yourself:
- If you really do love the person
- What you want out of the relationship with the person
- What you’re willing to give to have that person in your life
If you’re not willing to give much, you might not want to wait because time is one of the greatest assets in life and we can’t get a refund on it.
All I’m trying to say is, if you genuinely love someone and care about them, you shouldn’t be too worried about what they think or how they feel about you.
I know it’s difficult, especially when you want to spend the rest of your life with them, but there’s a higher level of love which gives and asks nothing in return. When you get to that level of loving without seeking or expecting to be loved in return, I think it’s safe to say that whoever it is you love will make their mind up about you pretty quickly.
Hope this helps.
