Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart.
And this is why we complain about our relationships so damn much. This is why, in most situations, high school romance does nothing for you other than tell you what not to do. While I have no way of defining love, I do know one thing that it isn’t: perfection. We set our expectations way too high going in, and end up disappointed/distressed on the way out.
We’re so caught up in where we’re going, we forget to stop and simply look around.
Love is obsession? I get what you’re saying, but use a different word. Obsession connotes something far different than what I think you’re getting at. Love isn’t obsession. Don’t romanticize/distort it to a higher level than it should be. That’s the media’s job.
Listen to your head AND your heart. If you listen to your heart, chances are you’ll end up rushing into a relationship. If you listen to your head, chances are you won’t take the chance at all. I say factor in both, and balance them out. Of course, this approach varies for everybody, so it might not work in all cases.
I will admit that there are few, and I mean few cases, where everything you just argued works out perfectly. However, for the rest of us, love just doesn’t pan out that way. It’s far more complicated.
Damn, I’m tired. We had a fucking 3 hour audition workshop today for Samahang Modern, and a two hour workshop yesterday. It’s two pieces, one swag, and one intricate/smooth. The first choreo is suicide in terms of difficulty at first, and the second choreo has weird timing. I gotta practice my ass off tomorrow, since auditions are at 8:30pm.
And on top of that, I’m buttfucked with homework and reading for my classes, as of right now. I’mma be going to hell for the next few days.
