I've never EVER in my 15 years of life been in a relationship with someone. Yes I'm still young but if I'm 25+ and still haven't fallen for someone well that's pretty sad!!

reason I never voted for "I don't believe in love"
love could be anything

"used to propogate the species," "the polar opposite of hate," ... ...

for a change, I'm not gonna go on about that today

 

but, really

we're talking about the romantic stuff, right? that's what my topic was intended to be about, I think

 

I saw it with my own mind

the way to love someone

 

glad I never saw it as a kid like most (though most'd most likely be appalled at that); I can remember...

 

Still

I know

that if I do

decide to fall into love, that is

I'll be screwed xD irrevocable decisionz FTW

 

lol, the verb to fall is pretty accurate IMO... say you're thinking about falling onto your bed. you have to believe the bed is there, right? otherwise, you wouldn't jump.

...that was a lame example. my point: you have to be open enough to see it. then, you have to let it happen.

 

and sometimes, people who don't know about it lie and hope they figure it out. it's not something you can plan or guess at, or shoot arrows at your psyche and hope you hit the love button, because it's kind of a fact. sorta. it requires... a passive-ish mindset? (someone who doesn't relish the idea of such feelings can, too; it's just that it takes them longer to realize, like when I saw)

 

it doesn't require you to believe or disbelieve--all you need is to to just let things roll. regardless of how strongly you uphold your beliefs, it catches up to you in ways you might not have expected. in short, for your convenience, don't think too much about it. neither wishing for/against it nor studying it will change things any more than hoping for, say, money to fall from the sky.

 

and when it happens... can't help you there, lol

haven't quite gotten that far

maybe next year.

 

whattheheckdidIjustwrite

can I stop being an idiot now? I really feel like one. ahhhh... the disorganized ramblings of a well-read teen

 

 

edit: talked to some people who read it, and was asked if this meant you have to believe in love

answer: no

...t necessarily

Oh my gosh why the hell are all these messages edited I can't keep up with this conversation anymore

 

Have I ever been in love?

 

I honestly don't know.

 

My dad has always told me that all boys think about is food and sex. He says that I'll think I'm in love with a guy, but then he'll just be fake and then we'll break up and I'll be a drama queen and think that my life is over.

 

I love the fact that he's so specific on how my future is going to go.

 

He went through several girlfriends, got married, got divorced, married my mom, cheated on her when I was two, got back with my mom, and argues with her everyday.

 

This is the only image of "love" I've seen.

 

I seriously doubt that's love.

 

But if the married couple I've seen everyday of my life isn't love, then what is?

 

I don't want to be a "drama queen" like my dad says I will be when I fall in "love". If I fall in "love". Because I have no clue what it looks like or feels like. So I am afraid to fall in "love". Because I'm afraid that I'll live up to what my dad says my life will be.

heh, yeah

I don't have such a good example to go by, either

one of my parents admitted that he/she didn't think too highly of love

the other admitted that love was beyond them

 

doesn't exactly help when I consider the fact that most of my friends have parents who're separated, lol

Love is weird and unpredictable... It's hard to explain my opinions, but I'll try.

 

Okay, you could be friends with someone for a long time.

Then you have a special moment with them that makes you think about... love :o

But you aren't quite in love yet; you want to DECIDE if you are ready to love them or not.

What am I even saying, you ask? That's just how it was for me. ;)

 

So basically, you CAN control love in most cases, but mainly only while it's happening; after you have fallen in love, it gets harder. If that makes sense.

But if you have been careful, hopefully you have fallen in love with someone kind and understanding and who will always be sweet to you. :3 Not being careful, and falling in love without actually thinking about it, may result in losing love interest later and breaking up, which I think is a tragic thing. All relationships need to be taken seriously to ensure things like this don't happen.

 

Why do people love? That is very complicated, as well.

We all have different reasons.

People can love without wanting to have a baby; there's more to it than that. I think love exists between two people who trust and support each other so much, and make each other happy, and want to enjoy the rest of their lives with each other. People can get married without having babies or even having... well, you know. As long is there is a special bond between them, they can get married and be happy forever. >w<

 

I never thought I would fall in love; I always hated romantic stuff and thought it was a waste of time and life. But it happened. o _ o And I'm happy it did, because my BF has helped me so much and nobody could replace him. :)

Actually, weirdly enough, this year I've pretty much lost interest in boys. 

As in, my mom's always pointing out hot guys and I'm like, "um, ok."

Basically, I find people's features aesthetically pleasant but not personally attractive.

Probably too much other stuff to think about right now. idk
