Love Is a Many Splendid Thing
I'll admit right up front, I'm a hopeless romantic.
I live for those long walks on the beach at dawn, candlelit dinners and baths with rose petals floating on the water.
I often (sometimes stupidly I admit) will put love and relationships before anything else, even if it turns out being the wrong thing to do. When love comes into the equation, rationality leaves. Usually I'm a normal, down to earth and reserved guy, but put me with my girl and I turn into a pile of mushyness.
Some might say (and some have) that it will be my downfall. The bad part about being a mushy hopeless romantic is if it ends, I get destroyed. I am terrible in break-ups, I break down, I cry, I mope, I turn from a hopeless romantic into a hopeless mess.
So why do I do this to myself do you ask? Why put myself in such a position to be destroyed?
Well I'll tell you.
For one thing, as a hopeless romantic I do believe in true love. I believe that out there for everyone (yes, everyone) that there is a person out there that will fully complete them, a soul mate if you will. Unfortunately not everyone finds their soul mate I also believe, but I do believe they exist.
Secondly, there is something absolutely wonderful about surrendering yourself completely to someone that they are in a position to destroy you if they so wish. Giving yourself to someone so totally, full and complete trust in that person is a beautiful thing and I am fully willing to do that and risk my heart in the process.
Because Love is always worth it.
