I feel really lucky that I'm not bogged down by the sex part of love. I'm asexual, so my romantic relationships focus solely on romance. I think that that's the only way I would be happy; I wouldn't want to have to deal with all the extra complications of sexuality.
I am only a few months from 18 year old... Call me crazy but I fell in love with my girlfriend when I was 16. We are still together. I am lesbian and proud of it. We have not once had a fight. Are relationship is based off of our support for each other in good times and in hard times. <3
Love is a battlefield, corny as it may sound, Ive been on every side of the field, been dug deep in all the trenches, and honestly Ive gained nothing from it but a mess of scars and bullet wounds where my heart used to be. Even loving with all my heart i found it difficult to receive any back, probably because the people who intended to never did, and the ones that didn't tricked me into believing that they did. Ive been everywhere from the friend-zone right back down to the one doing the friend-zoning, and honestly its only briefly been anything but a bitter experience. I even poured everything i had in me into one relationship, only to be told they needed something new because we had far too much history. when really our history was the thing i loved most about our relationship other then the company, because its history that makes a good story, and history that builds nations, its the history that builds a strong foundation for the future. In the end i always hear the same old tale. You deserve better. The real hard truth is, if i always deserve better.....then in the end am i not just all alone? so if you really want to know, id have to say, love isn't worth the toll it takes on the heart, or the scars it leaves on the skin.
I have been in love before--I believe in love, in a way. But I was married for a long time. And I have felt love. So I believe in love. But I believe in it in the way that if the person or persons in love truly believe they're in love, then they are and no one should say otherwise. But, at the same time, the rational and logical side of me would want to explain how the feeling we describe as "love" is essentially a chemical imbalance, and while on the one hand... I can say "Well, science can explain what it is, so it's obviously real" but then again, because of how the feeling tends to wear off over time (and this is not meant offensively to anyone, but scientifically, it is a fact. That's why we have things like "puppy love", "the honeymoon phase" and "the 7 year itch"). It dies down, which means the best idea of whatever "True love" is... is essentially just a couple determined to be together, and willing to openly communicate, and stick it out through everything, in spite of everything. It's a pretty crazy concept, if you think about it. But a powerful one, nonetheless. So, do I believe in love?... maybe not so much, in the typical belief kind of way. But I certainly do believe in the commitment, and willpower, and dedication and faithfulness behind it. And if you find your one and only, then more power to you. It's a beautiful thing.
