You Come to Love, Not by Finding the Perfect Person

I am amazed how often we hold back our love. We might be waiting for the “perfect person” to come along, so we can finally shower him or her with all our love. Or we might be waiting for the person who we are in a relationship with (whether romantic or not) to finally change and improve their “flaws”, so we can fully love them.
What would happen if we fully loved the people in our lives just the way they are, with all their imperfections? 
Would that act by itself initiate a change that would otherwise not have been possible? Would it create an environment for the other person to really be themselves and bring out their best self? Would it bring more of the love into our life that we have been looking for all along?
