No, I'm not saying love is a myth. The myth of romantic love is the false idea that love will solve all of your problems. Women, especially, find that they are waiting for the knight in shining armor to carry them away--and when he arrives, nothing really changes. Love can make you a better person, but that is up to YOU, not your lover, and can happen whether the relationship ends or not. Love is not a magic wand; you'll find only disappointment if you put all your hopes and dreams into it.
