According to science, there are three stages of love. Lust, attraction and attachment. Remove lust, we get friendship. Remove attraction, we get family. Basically, the lesser the emotions, the more longterm the relationship is. We chase after love like idiots where we should spend more or our energy on friends and family. Not everyone gets a happily ever after with love. They should not be given false hope. They should be asked to concentrate on themselves and their family and friends. Sometimes even the friends are not worth keeping.
