It might be fun to get wrapped up in all the stereotypes of being in love: Romantic walks on the beach, dozens of roses, and endless loopy staring into each other's eyes.
But if you've ever actually been in love, you know that's simply not how the story usually goes. In reality, the best love affairs are totally dorky and full of mishaps and misunderstandings. These illustrations capture the more haphazard side of falling in love perfectly.
The illustrations were created by a Russia-based artist called Landysh, who released this work in honor of Valentine's Day.
"I really wanted to celebrate love and relationships," Landysh said in an interview. "Because it's a beautiful thing. But I am not a cheesy person. I decided to show what relationships are really about: We love people with all their imperfections and all the weird stuff they do. It makes them so special for us and it definitely makes our lives much more interesting!"
