I Believe In Love Not Labels

    People want to label me.

    Conservative or liberal. By my appearance. Preconceived notions. But I reject all of that. I'm just me.

    I think that sometimes

    when people put labels on things like being in a relationship it causes a lot of pressure for each of them to live up to expectations (which might not even exist if you don't know the person well enough). I think that if you just go with whatever it is that you 2 have you...

    Love is love. Labels are manufacturers marks.

    Love is not manufactured, but it can leave a mark!

    There are many different types of love.

    All labeling does is build up walls. Allow yourself the privilege of love. Not many find it.

    Granted there are many labels you could put

    towards me, But I desire like minded and love over all. To label me would be hard.

    labels on humans and animals are stupid.

    the heart wants what it wants. love is exactly that: love. if they truly love each other, i say who cares about the rest?

    I want a guy i can fall for.

    A guy who doesn't mind me being clingy, who gets a little jealous or worried, who is overprotective of me. I think a guy like that is a sweetheart and really adorable. Any guys like that? If there is, we should talk.

    I've had sex with several of my lesbian friends.

    This was years ago and we've since lost touch. Make no mistake though, they are dedicated lesbians. The thing is, those were some of the most intimate experiences I've ever had because the experiences were rooted in a mutual love, respect and attraction for one another; it...

    I was married for a time.

    Labels do nothing, except separate us more.

    I like to think we're all in this together. Race, beliefs, and sexual orientation, as well as financial status shouldn't define who we are.

    To much time and energy goes into trying to fit

    into certain labels. I just want people around me that know who they are or who they want to be. It doesn't matter where you came from, what you did , who you know , or how much money you have. In the end all that matters is that your true to yourself.

    To me..."labels" reminds me of the common

    categories people will place themselves in regarding relationships in general. They'll say things such as "my type". Personally, I don't believe people have a "type". The connection is what matters in the end. The assumptions that people have a specific classification for their...

    I don't see faces or genders,

    I only see personality, opinion, and soul. A beautiful person is someone who is open and honest, loyal and passionate. you could be the prettiest person alive but it's what inside that defines you.

    I have found comfort in my label.

    I have always struggled with who I am. I used to say it as a joke because of my personality type but it is an orientation. I found support and humor and know that I'm not crazy. I am Asexual, and I finally feel free.
