Love is overrated

You will never find your true love, there is no perfect relationship.
Or is there?
Isn't love overrated? Shouldn't we aim for other types of relationships (eg. open relationships, not monogamous relationships, communes)?

    Sep 22 2012: Maybe it’s old-fashioned, maybe it’s connected with customs in my country, but I believe in true love. Of course is no perfect relationships and it’s good (in my opinion sth perfect=sth boring), you have to learn sth from your girlfriend/boyfriend and she/he has to learn sth from you. And you have to trust. If love is overrated? Commercial love from TV- yes and it’s annoying. Real love from real life-no.
