For a bit of home-spun wisdom, look no further than the Yorkshireman's creed:

'heer all, see all, an' sey nowt. eet all, sup all, an' pay nowt. An' if tha ivver dus owt fer nowt, allus do it fer thissen'

Translated from northern:

'Hear all, see all and say nothing. Eat all, drink all and pay nothing. And if you ever do anything for nothing, always do it for yourself'

Life is strange.  Love is even stranger.
It recognizes no authority but its own.
It keeps to its own time table, and it listens to no one but itself.
It is no wonder that Love can be both the most liberating and most frustrating of emotions.

To springboard off of that.

When you love someone, it's more than just passion.

You become invested in their well-being entirely -- you want to spend time with them, you want them to do well, you want them to feel happy.

However, the truest test of love is how you act when that passion wanes.

Simply enjoying each other's company in silence can be a true mark of love.  It doesn't have to be about sex, or kissing, or even hugging.

And sometimes, people fall out of love.  Humans are not inherently monogamous creatures, though we have adapted to that lifestyle fairly well.  It happens to even the truest of lovers.  What's most important is what happens afterwards.  Do you try to reforge the love?  Or do you agree to move on and remain friends?  Or do you pretend that nothing is wrong while your relationship decays from the inside out?

Also, sex and love are not the same thing.  It seems obvious, but you'd be surprised at how often one is confused for the other.
Mockery of ideas you don't comprehend or understand is the surest mark of unintelligence.

Even the worst union is better than the best Walmart.

It can be incredibly exciting once you've found your first girl/boyfriend, but it can also serve as a necessary learning experience. Take it slow. Don't jump the gun and decide you're going to get married eventually after being together for just a couple months, because chances are you haven't had enough time to learn about one another. A lot of people mistake that initial rush of passion for love and overlook important things about their partner. Doing so puts unnecessary strain on the relationship and makes it hurt far worse if a breakup occurs. Be smart. Take time (a loooot of time) to learn about the person and, if you're old enough and ready to commit, decide whether you're willing to pursue something long-term.

I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.

Don't stay in a relationship that you're not happy in just because you're scared that you won't ever find another one.

Rejection is part of life. Whether it's from potential mates, jobs, schools, friends, anything. Life gives you far more noes than yesses.

It's great to have goals, but don't ever put a strict time limit on them. It only serves to discourage you if you don't reach your goal in time.

Doing any little bit of something is far better than doing nothing.

Don't be a cunt.

Just to put something solid here, I'd say at least a year of living together alone. Things change when you live together, and a bit more when there's no one else around.
