I'm Glad I'm Not the Only One

wow I really thought I was the only one who was afraid of love. I am almost 21years old and every single one of my friends is married. They got married at 17, 19, & 20 years old. I have about 13 friends who all got married this young. All of them convinced that they found true love. 1/2 of them are already divorced and  the rest of them are completely miserable. Love makes you do stupid things. I am terrified of it, so I have never allowed myself to get close enough to anyone to even utter the word love.

I just think that everyone should TAKE THEIR TIME, and WORK on things, and love will work. Unfortunately, that isn't the case, and if you are not in a relationship, you feel pressured to do so. Love makes STUPID people do STUPID things, that is why I want to fall in love with someone smart, too bad there aren't too many people like that around.

I like that quote =)

8') I don't know why, but reading this reminds me of a thought/quote I wrote down months ago from talking with you. I'd lost the paper I wrote it on, and just happened to find it today when I was cleaning...<br />

"We become so comfortable living the dream, that reality becomes scary. And when life presents you an opportunity we sometimes are afraid to chase after it. Where in our dream you are in control, in life we only have partial control."

Oh you're most welcome.

Thanks for the encouragement!

3timesI thought I was in love. 3 times I felt a fist was repeatedly ramming its way into my stomach when the relationships fell apart. Wait a minute, we're young. I seriously doubt we'll find our true love anytime soon, although it does get lonely at night. But hey you; don't be afraid of love. It hurts like a son of a b****, but if you find The One, it's worth it.
