    Love Doesn't Judge

    I've dated my fair share of guys....I've always based a potential boyfriend by his personality. If he's fun and makes me laugh and I feel comfortable around him, I couldn't care less if he's black, brown, white, or purple. It's what's on the inside that makes a couple compatible...

    For Someone I Still Love...

    For a change I'm not going to theorize and all that. I got inspired to write this story thanks to a story in "I Wonder If Its Possible to Love Someone You've Never Met". It made me remember someone, I'd almost forgot. Almost, because the one who's usually in front is...

    If your feel it in your heart, and it's true, there is no way that a feeling is "wrong". You cannot help who you fall in love with. It just happens. A persons gender, race and age should never stop you from loving someone. Not all people believe this but it's defiantly how I feel...

    True

    Sadly, not everyone is as accepting of this reality as the people who fall in love with someone that society or family deems *inappropriate*It takes courage to face them down and do what you know in your heart is the right thing for you.

    It's about love, or just communication

    and connection. Yes, your race, gender or age are part of who you are and what makes you interesting, but they are no barrier to connecting or understanding. And they aren't more important than other interesting things about you like your home town or your eye colour. Let's talk...

    I'm tired of people complaining about the race

    and people who are racist. You're white you're black, then what? Colors doesn't define you indeed. You define yourself! Your personality says who you are. I attract to people who are Intelligent, funny, adventurous.

    Love is love. As long

    as its reasonable. A 28 year old claiming that they are in love with a 5-9 year old isn't reasonable, the kid doesn't even know what love is or what it is about. But I believe anyone can fall in love no matter the age difference. No matter if you are related or not. No matter...

    there is no real reason you shouldn't be with them unless they turn out to be someone you thought they weren't. But even then you can just talk about that. But I believe that there is no Age of love. No distance is too big for two loved ones. We are all Human and can love...

    What we choose to pray about really reveals a
