True love isn't dead, it's just misrepresented. We've only got a single word for love but it means several different things depending on who you talk to.

True love is romantic in hindsight. It's intimate in the most difficult moments of your life. It's sacrifice where you give 80 and expect 20 in return.

It's long-term focused, but lived out in the second to second where you choose to respond, always with generosity and support.

It's investment, where the return is neither measurable or expected.

It's putting yourself aside for the benefit of someone else.

It's getting up again and saying sorry after falling short. It's about doing what you say you will do. Till death do us part.
