They say that people who workout together stay together, but I can say for sure that it’s not solely about that. It could not solely be about style either, yet it is very rarely that people in a couple (straight, gay etc) share the same style. Or energy.
In fact, people sharing the same energy, almost always share the same style. In faaact, they might not always share the same, same style, but it’s their energy that makes one say They have this thing… In faaact, fact, people in a couple rarely share the same style when they don’t share the same energy.
And the best part is none of them can not not be real. Nor the style. Nor the energy. None of them lies. A couple that shares both style and energy, shares love. This doesn’t mean they always have to be careful to coordinate or something. On the contrary (!!). Nothing has to anything. It is only when they stay true to who they are that they create (share?) love. The love that makes them ride the same wave or become even more of who they truly are. The love everyone is dreaming about, yet only the bravest are brave enough to pursue it.
I saw it in my parents’ relationship throughout the years, so it’s possible.
But in order to stay true to who they are, they have to know who they are and this is where the Aw, life is so beautiful! comes in. The more each of them is true to who they are, the more of a style they have together as a couple. Almost regardless of what they wear. Clothes are not the most important, of course, but let’s not forget clothes are so much more than just fashion.
It’s also about not being afraid. Of anything. Starting with clothes and finishing with roller coasters or eating in the streets. Of Paris.
Obviously, style isn’t the most powerful thing about a couple, but we can toast some champagne flutes over here to salute when people in a couple share style. Energy is a must, though, I came over the years and a couple of very long relationships to realise. Just like humour is. Style is a bonus. When a couple shares the same energy and some sort of style, they have most probably come to some sort of knowing who they are and so on, oui, oui, ouuui!
Moreover, I think that when a person meets another person with a similar style and energy, each of them gets to experience even more of what being true to themselves means. Their potential grows and so does style. Sometimes, this can only happen when the time’s right, yet time should not be confused with fear, yet it should be taken with ease.
However, there are, most definitely, people in a couple who are so different in every way possible and still say they love each other. So, in a world full of so many differences, the one thing that’s always going to be here (or wherever) forever is your true self and the other true self you can bounce with ideas off at night.
And no one guarantees anything here. That it’s all meant to be forever, but you won’t know until you try. Maybe it’s not, but what if it is? It only depends on what you want your life to be like. Like.
