Only with time do we really learn who the other person is and come to love the person for him- or herself and not just for the feelings and experiences they give us.
Be a child again. Flirt. Giggle. Dip your cookies in your milk. Take a nap. Say you’re sorry if you hurt someone. Chase a butterfly. Be a child again.
