Healthy Adaptations

Practical love stands as an opposite force to passionate love. For Practical lovers, the initial buzz and superficialities like physical attraction take a back seat to long-term matters. This doesn't necessarily mean Practical lovers completely disregard the emotional intensity of early love. Instead, they know when to take a step back and view things with a realistic lens in order to ensure the sustainability and longevity of a relationship.
