When a person falls in love with someone there is a certain level of connection which both the individuals can relate to. They may be distant but they will always looking forward to talking or contacting their significant other by any means necessary. Sometimes in their bid to have a perfect relationship the couple may weave lies and illusions around themselves in order to appear as though hopelessly romantic with each other. In reality though, under this façade resides no real emotional connection. Find out if you are investing your time in such a relationship.
When a couple is interested in each other they are always thinking how to connect with them. They will try any means at their disposal to try and connect with their significant other since that is what gives them the most delight and satisfaction. However if you both barely come face to face and do not really feel an urge to make some sort of contact with the other person it is certainly missing the sincere love.
It is natural to assume that when you love someone you make an effort to know how their day was. What important things are happening in their lives. Especially if you are in a long distance relationship you will make arrangements to have those long, late night conversations with your significant other.
If there is no urge at all to contact them or you get to know about their important events via Facebook notifications it is evidence enough you are just under an illusion of a relationship with no requisite emotional connection.
A person is always looking for a perfect relationship where the couple acts out all lovey dovey and there are no arguments between them. This kind of relationship is only possible in a perfect world otherwise it is just plain hypocrisy. No two people are that compatible to never have any disagreements or little fights. Too much PDA is an attempt to let others perceive that they are super romantic with each other but the moment they are out of public eye they will be distant with each other.
We are not saying PDA is a bad thing; we merely are pointing out to the fact that there is a visible decrease in expressing affection when you are alone and while in public. This contrasting attitude only confirms that you are forcefully imposing an image or fabricating a relationship which never really exists in the first place.
