The Romantic Sense

I love people.

I love my parents, as far away and embarrassing as they are.

I love my sister, I wish we were closer, but we're so different.

I love my best friend, the person I can tell anything to without judgment and can always  turn to for advice. She's a superwoman.

I like other girls/am attracted to them, but I definitely know the difference between attraction, lust, and love.

I liked my girlfriend, but never loved her. Two and a half years since that girlfriend is a long time without a relationship.

I like B, and don't know where that will go, but I hope to god I don't fall for her, as she has off sworn relationships. And she's my good friend now, I can't and won't betray the trust that comes with that. I'm supposed to keep creepy guys from hitting on her, not be one of those guys myself.

I love people.

But have never been in love with any one of them.

I feel like I have a long way to go before I fall in love, but I'm actually satisfied with the path I'm on right now. I can wait. I just hope that when it finds me, it won't be a one way street. I have a feeling that's a lonely and hopeless road.

And to anyone's who's found love...

You're quite lucky. To have someone who you'd risk everything for and know that they would do the same for you. God, you're lucky. Cherish what you have, don't take it for granted. I know I won't.

Love is like a roller coaster....many hills and valleys, but always an exciting ride.

You will find yours....probably when you least expect it.

Loving is so much better than being in love. Loving can be a genuine feeling of caring. Being in love is an obsession and instinctual.

Thanks! Wow, haha, I wrote this over 2 years ago!<br />
<br />
Haha, yeah, which I did keep from happening a lot! :P Still a friend of hers, though haven't seen her in a while, I should hang out with her sometime soon...<br />
<br />
Oh, I know that feeling completely :)

Oh interesting, I didnt notice the yeah you should say hi to her! Friends are irreplacable.

This is so sweet... you have a lot of self awareness which can be a rare quality. It's a nice trait that many people don't have.<br />

"I'm supposed to keep creepy guys from hitting on her, not be one of those guys myself" - LOL....<br />
<br />
PS: Parents will always be able to embarrass you. I don't know how they do it. Mine can instantly bring horror to me in front of others because they know me so well ;-)

Probably one of my biggest problems is comparing myself to other people, so I know what ya mean.

Yeah, I know, but I figure it'll happen eventually. Just have to be patient, and not compare myself to others, if I haven't found anyone to fall for, then it just isn't the time for me yet...

I've never been in love either. When I find what I'm looking for, whenever that may be... I won't take it for granted either.<br />
Sometimes I feel horrible for being 20 and never being in love. I mean, my mom got married and had her first kid when she was 20! Sometimes I don't know what's wrong with me. Ya know?
