Do You Believe The True Love

Anything is possible in love.If one has to break down the plots of most romantic novels, they would actually seem quite silly. So why then are most of the romantic novels in the world such bestsellers then? Because love sells. Love stories simply stand the test of time, and give generations hope on which to build their perfect love story. The earliest love stories were often told in the form of songs, or ballads passed down from one generation to another, till they were written as stories to read.Boys will hope they find a woman who will stand by them and girls will keep hoping they find men who will die for them. It is not for nothing that generations have grown up on Mills and Boons, and Danielle Steele. It is all part of the race in the search for the perfect love story.

tiny love storiesWhich sad love story left the deepest impression on you?Why is that? Why do some books/movies tug harder at our heartstrings than others? I believe it is because they involve us so fully that we virtually become the characters – thinking their thoughts, feeling their anguish.Drawn into their world, we forget our own for a while and inhabit a different skin. This has especial potency if their life is colorful and exciting, as fictional lives tend to be. And if that is true for the reader, how much more true might it be for the writer?

There are some love stories below.Maybe you have been ever like them so much.

Casablanca is a 1942 American romantic drama film directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, and featuring Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Dooley Wilson. Set during World War II, it focuses on a man torn between, in the words of one character, love and virtue. He must choose between his love for a woman and helping her and her Czech Resistance leader husband escape from the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis.

Titanic was a 1943 Nazi propaganda film made during World War II in Berlin by Tobis Productions for UFA, which was later banned from Nazi Germany by Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. The film used the sinking of the RMS Titanic as a setting for an attempt to discredit British and American capitalist dealings and glorify the bravery and selflessness of German men. Today, Titanic is known for its extremely dark production history and, ironically, became the symbol of the corruption and “sinking” of the Third Reich itself.

Roman Holiday is a 1953 romantic comedy directed and produced by William Wyler and starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. It was written by John Dighton and Dalton Trumbo, though with Trumbo on the Hollywood blacklist, he did not receive a credit; instead, Ian McLellan Hunter fronted for him. Trumbo’s credit was reinstated when the film was released on DVD in 2003. On December 19, 2011, full credit for Trumbo’s work was restored.Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; the screenplay and costume design also won.

It is good to be loved and feel loved! However, you must know what true love entails lest you fall into problems in your love relationship.

Love is a heart work. It is the fusion of two hearts with the aim of pursuing a common goal in spite of differences in race, level of literacy, age, and so on. It transcends emotions. Emotions may go but only commitment remains.

Here are some tips on dating for men and women to help keep the love alive if you are in a multi-cultural relationship:

  1. Respect. This comes when dating expats and if both of you come from totally different cultures.

Chinese people have one of the oldest traditions and cultures that have been around for quite some time so expect your Chinese partner to be really firm with some practices and tradition.
  2. Learn how to deal with the parents. There are many traditional Chinese parents who are not open to their son or daughter dating someone outside their race. Chinese parents and even grandparents can often cause trouble in the relationship specially if you’re dating or in a relationship with the first born son. First born sons are the next Patriarchs of the family and much pressure is put on them to do well for the family’s survival. There are many stories of women who married first born Chinese males that were treated badly by their in-laws. Put your relationship first and agree on a plan to deal with your in-laws or parents.
  3. Be open, don’t criticize. Just because your partner has some quirky traditions or ways that are not known or practiced in your culture doesn’t mean that you have to condemn or criticize it.

  4. Make an effort to learn each other’s cultural norms and nuances. In Chinese culture, language is very important so you might need to learn how to speak the language if you want to get to know and understand your partner’s family and relatives. Learning each other’s cultures to avoid committing faux pas or further embarrassments to your mate in social situations is one of the best things you can do when dating expats.

The Chinese culture is rich in tradition and norms that you have to live with as part of being in a cross-cultural relationship.
