Since I don’t know how to use this app on my phone, here’s my response to your post, V.
I’m young and I’m sure that I’ve yet to experience much of life, so everything I think is surely incomplete.
My sentiment is that our notion of relationships has been bastardized by fantasies in the form of books and movies. People too often mistaken their infatuation for love. In my mind infatuation can be defined as a very strong affinity for something that quickly dissipates when things go wrong. I think the best definition of love is that quotation which has now become cliché- that it is patient and kind, not boasting… and so on. There is profound meaning in that statement and maybe it’s been used so often that people accept it as some sort of hyperbole of what people can experience. I feel as though love is not just rooted in emotion (which I understand to be the way in which it has been portrayed) but rather in commitment and devotion. That type of commitment requires an individual to make him or herself vulnerable and they are subject to be hurt. I think that we can never know what to expect when diving in to a relationship, but all we can do is hope that we find love in a form that’s deeper than mere emotions.
Anyways, who knows what I’m really saying, I’m gonna go grab a stiff drink and do some manly stuff to try and regain some street cred.
