1. True Love Can Happen Twice (Episode 1)
Episode 1 beautifully illustrated how some people lose the one they love due to circumstances beyond their control. We may lose that individual, but they remain with us in various ways, and it is difficult to let go of their memories.
This story teaches us that just because you’ve moved on and found love again doesn’t mean you’ve forgotten about the memories and the significant impact the past has had on your life.
True love can strike TWICE in a person’s life, and both can be life-changing.
2. Understanding Over Compromises (Episode 2)
We all believe that love is about making sacrifices, but doesn’t this contradict the fact that you can’t truly love someone else if you can’t love yourself?
Understanding and finding the proper rhythm in the middle of one’s diverse personality is what love is all about.
This story taught us straight up that love isn’t about making compromises. It’s about finding a place in the middle of the differences where both people can live and love in peace.
3. Some People Are Experiences (Episode 3)
You encounter someone who tickles your curiosity. And, more significantly, they’re curious about you. You have a conversation and determine that you want to spend the rest of the day with that individual.
You spend the day walking, talking, and giggling with one other, only to discover that you haven’t met someone who will unwittingly change our lives.
4. Unrequited But Still Love (Episode 4)
Some people believe that if you fall in love with someone and they do not return your feelings, you should go on. But what if you see that person regularly?
Worse, what if it’s your best friend, with whom you’ve spent so much time since the beginning? Unrequited love isn’t easy, but for some people, knowing that they’ll get butterflies every time they see that someone smile is worth it.
The beauty of bonding and being the lone one in love is discussed in this episode.
5. Not Knowing Whom To Love (Episode 5)
People who are struggling to understand their sexuality find it difficult to fall in love. It’s a never-ending conflict between what society expects people to like and what they truly desire.
The fifth episode covered the finer points of falling in love and discovering your sexuality for the first time, and never understanding how to delve deeper into it, and feeling completely alone in that vast soup.
6. Love Happens When You Least Expect (Episode 6)
Episode 6 is a one-of-a-kind love and life story. People we are with are frequently disloyal to us. Even if we loved them with all our hearts, or if they change or improve, we are under no responsibility to return them.
Although forgiveness is required to give yourself the room to fall again, it must be done correctly. But, as we all know, love always strikes when you least expect it.
7. Sometimes Love Is A Sweet Memory (Episode 7)
Looking back on all of your romantic interactions, all you see is a disappointment. However, there are instances when you have that one experience with a lovely person that you will never forget.
When you first met that person, there was an instant connection, followed by small sparks, and then one spark ignited the entire freaking room.
That stranger may have been your loveliest experience in the city, but what would you do if you saw them heading towards you in broad daylight? This episode depicted a love story with a similar outcome.
8. Some Love Is Forever (Episode 8)
You married that man because you once adored him and were great with him. You are separated from him after a few years, yet something is bubbling up again. This story is about a love that we blatantly disregard.
A love that may have become distorted due to the battle to maintain the integrity of marriage. More feelings, more words than materialistic affection, this is the kind of love.
This story shows us that no matter what happens, there will always be someone we love regularly.
