So being in a romantic relationship usually means the two people involved are intimate with each other (emotional closeness) and are probably sexually active to some degree (passion), but what turns romance into real love is the addition of commitment- the agreement to remain faithful to each other and to do whatever it takes to make your relationship work. Without the commitment, you are living an illusion in which you believe that all you need is love and that nothing else matters. It is not until you willingly commit to someone that you have created the foundation for a truly meaningful relationship. Knowing that your partner is truly committed to you will increase the degree of both the intimacy and passion that you feel for your partner.We all know that relationships can be complex confusing sometimes.
