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 teenager, this is when I'm supposed to be full of lust, and full of stupid ideas about love, but I'm not. I'm just empty, watching as people break up and make up, have sex or abstain, use and abuse, love, and I'm a constant in their lives, the girl who doesn't sugar coat the truth, who doesn't steal boyfriends, whose logic is never overridden in another's presence, who doesn't feel anything.

I don't understand it, but I sort of want to.

Because I am not a robot.

I really loved someone one time, real love that most people will never fell, but then she died, the only reason I didn't killed myself was because we had a weird converstion some weeks before it and she make me promise I wouldn't kill myself, but I'm already dead on the inside.

I'm sorry, that's incredibly sad.

Love is a wonderful feeling few people get to feel, but it turns to a monstrous sadness when the loved one goes away. Hope you can feel it some day, even with the sadness I still happy to had felt it once in my life.

Sadness is better when interrupted anyway.
