I Don't Know If I Believe In Love

    We’re social animals with a biological imperative to reproduce. That’s it. That’s all. Love is a neurochemical response with a shelf life long enough to perpetuate the species. And all we have in this world is relationships with other people.

    I Used To, But Not Anymore,

    I've been lucky enough to be in love twice in my life but I'm still alone.   I think that I was meant to be alone forever.   I don't think that my "soul mate" exists, at least not in this lifetime.  Who knows, maybe in the next lifetime, I...

    Love? Does It Exist? What Is It?

    I don’t know if I believe in love. This is just based on my observations. I can’t say that I know of a couple who’ve been together forever, and have grown old together, because they really wanted to be together and really loved each other. People use the word love so...

    Who doesn't want heart

    and flower? But the pain from the last memory is what makes me scared of letting another person come close to me. Even reading or watching romance books or movie, I just try to get rid of it. I'm so weak to get involve in that feeling again, the feeling of falling in love.

    I Love Love Stories, But I Don't Think Love Is Real

    Is there something wrong with me? I read romances all the time, but I've never felt an inkling of love for another human being. What is love anyway? Is it a mixture of chemical attraction, companionship, and trust? They seem like fairytales, far away from the likes of me. I'm a...

    Love shouldn't be a word.

    Everyone cheats in my opinion. Even old man and women cheat with someone much younger then them sometimes. If you don't cheat I know your partner would or will soon or later. You may not believe me but it's true. There not one couple on this planet who does not cheat.

    After a recent relationship ended I found

    myself not sad, but angry. I was lied to, but he seemed to love me a lot. I just feel so "cold". I feel like the only purpose love has is convenience. He kept saying he wanted to be friends, because he found comfort in talking to me. After that I kept wondering is that all love...

    Just Don't Know

    Is Love Real

    What is love really? I mean I've had boy/girl friends and I've been married but was I in love? I have had children w/ my ex after the big "D" (how odd is that) but to look at him I don't have an attraction to him. I certainly don't love him... I guess it's just comfort...

    When I hear love I think I'll be happy someday,

    but then I remember I have philophobia (Fear of falling in love or love in general.) It's not rejection I'm afraid of. Imagine the feeling of wanting to fall in love but at the same time you want that gaping hole to stay in your heart.

    it almost seems unrealistic.

    how is is possible for two people out of 7 billion to be attracted to one another? I don't believe it is. it just doesn't seem plausible to me. sure you may be madly in love with someone but the chances of them being madly in love with you are slim. that's why I'm sad. it sucks...

    I write about it. What I think it should be,

    hope for it to be. Then it doesn't even come close. I don't even have it on that high of a pedestal.

    Love Is Impossible.

    I don't think I'm capable of love, I don't think many people are. I can love. But I can't be in love. I've never seen it work out, and that scares me. I wish someone could walk into my life and just embrace me, because I always fight it, and I always run, because there's no way...

    I'm a voracious cheater,

    because I've always found the concept of monogamy dreadfully dull and unscientific. When the opportunity for sex comes my way, I rarely turn it down. I've changed my habits, lately, but I have an addictive personality, and women are often on my mind. I felt really bad about...

    I listen to these love songs,

    I like the lyrics and I think it is nice to feel this towards someone, it is called love and I wonder if I believe in it, or whether I am just me, will always be so independent that I won't bear sharing a life with someone.

    I'd Rather Be Alone

    Everyday I see my parents fight and argue for hours over nothing. They don't care about each other at all. After being married for 20 years, you'd think someone would love someone enough to not make them cry and have a breakdown because they bought styrofoam instead of paper...

    I use to at least believe in the feeling of

    love. While it lasts, it is a wonderful feeling. I have written love poems for girls and confessed my bare soul to those I fell for. Not out of the blue, I'm not that new. It was the right time, and an ultimatum had to be made after we did the dance of are we aren't we for too...

    I used to believe in love

    but in this society love means $$$$$$. A woman will divorce you or break up with you as soon as you say you cant give her $$$$.

    I believe in every kind of love except

    for romance love!!! I don't know why I have parents that are together and they say they love each other... They have never done things that would make me not believe in love... I just don't think I believe in it and I don't know why...... The whole love thing just seems like it...
