In my 20’s, I had probably the best romantic relationship thus far in my lifetime. I’m repeating and reframing this joke of his. He was intelligent, creative, funny, and fun. (His wit and competitive nature also helped me improve my best ever scrabble score.)
But “Sometimes he made me feel good and sometimes he made me falafel.”

Don't marry the one you love! Marry the one whom loves you. I have found that to be very true.
I’m trying to figure out why this one bugs me haha. It’s been on my mind since I came across it. I think being a compassionate person that has loved many, I always wanted them to just love me back. Obviously not healthy and never happened how I wanted it to. Thank goodness haha! But it makes me think, how does this work? Does this person loving you know you don’t love them as much, but they will do? Or are you saying it mostly will turn into you loving them more because you let them love you? I think maybe a good saying could be “ love the one that tolerates you the best”. Maybe you have more to add that will help clarify this if I misconstrued it.
