I think as we grow older, the meaning of love gets diluted. When was the last time our eyes were focused on just one person, giving our everything to pursue the one love. The kinda love in today’s society, I call it the musical chair. We wait around, our eyes darted on every chair, and pounce on the one single available one without much thought. Just like now, we are constantly “testing out” even on people we don’t have deep attraction for. Well, if she/he is good-looking then I’ll consider him or her. CONSIDER. What happened to the kind of love you fall right into, that you don’t even take superficial factors into fucking consideration. Love is first a spark and chemistry, then it’s a choice of commitment. Not the other way round cos the former would only last as long as emotions and expectations do. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I believe in consensual romance and those are the best. Nobody has to do the chase, no one has to play hard to get nor push and pull. Both of you just fall so deeply in love where the rest of the world is a blur. You bask into how the universe brought you two together in the most unimaginable circumstance and timing. You embrace each others’ strengths that shine so bright, and accept each others’ flaws because no one is perfect and even more because your flaws are complementary. And when the sparks is gone, what’s left is still this bond and love you’ve built over time and countless fights that made you cry but came out stronger and closer together. The kind of love that’s selflessly lifting each other up, because you just want to see him/her grow and be happy. The kind that you give not because you want something in return but because the person is so special to you that you want him/her to have the best. The kind that you don’t just want to have fun with, but someone who can withstand storms with you. This is the kinda love I seek, but does it even exist anymore.
