Want to know the perspectives on love? Though opposites do attract, the failure to understand the dynamics of this attraction can sometimes keep compatible partners apart. There are two perspectives of love, male and female, and they tend to clash very hard.
The male perspective of love embodies everything that a man is: logical, powerful, insightful, and a dedicated provider. A man may think of a relationship as a machine, something that has to be solved to function properly. When the relationship starts to stall, he usually finds himself tinkering around with it or perhaps looking for a good instruction manual. (Wink, wink)
A woman’s perspective embodies the spirit of femininity. Her perspective is emotional; her reactions are capricious and her vision is idealized. A man may be overly concerned with being a material provider, while the woman has more emotional needs that are not being addressed. Men try to solve problems in relationships, whereas women tend to feel and talk out their concerns. Of course, these generalities in dynamics are not true in every single relationship. However, it should be every lover’s goal to find a delicate balance between matters of the mind and matters of the heart.
Love in the Real World

Love is a many glamorized thing. We all enjoy watching romance movies, epic tragedies and love stories that are seemingly larger than life. There’s nothing wrong with watching Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracey light up the screen or watching Richard Gere and Julia Roberts share romantic banter – provided a person continues to separate fiction from reality.
Love takes place in the real world, not behind a camera or in the pages of a steamy romance novel. Fictitious romance is idolized and is a slightly warped perception of what human love should be. Real love is not all kisses and orchestra music, nor is it a Machiavellian melodrama on the FOX Network.
