Ever since she wrote it I have been SUPER curious about love and being “in love” as well. I actually have her blog post saved and every few weeks or months I will go and read the post and just ponder love..while I sip tea in Paris. Okay totally kidding about the 2nd part.
Everyone I talk to always gives me cliche answers like “you will just know.” I have enough Cliche’s about Love and Life to write an entire book!
I often frequent a Q&A Site called Quora.com and sometimes I will even search questions about love and falling in love. My favorite answer is the guy that says, “All the cheesy love songs will start to make sense.”
Obviously this is something that people are constantly looking for. There are tons of queries out there about love. Where do you find love?, how do you know?, what does love feel like?, Am I in love?, Will our love last?, Is this infatuation or really love?, the list goes on.
Honestly I still don’t have any answers to these questions. I’m still a super confused girl looking for love in the world. I still get really lonely and jealous of others that have found love and I still wish I could just wake up married and in love. I know I’m not perfect and it’s something I am working on.
But I really just want to fall in love. Everyone talks about it like it’s the best thing ever I just want to feel what it is like. How will it make me feel? How will I react? Will I know right away or will it take me a long time to figure it out? Will I like it or hate it? Will I put his needs before my own? Will it make me a less selfish person? Will I abandon my friends? Will I talk in cliches? Will it make sense?
Will we have chemistry and just click and then we’ll know? Will it make me feel so happy that I am just smiling all the time? Will my heart just hurt and race at the thought of him? At what moment will I know I’m not insane and know I’m in love and don’t want to live without him? Will it take a month, 3 months, 6 months, or 2 years?
Apparently I have a whole lot of questions and absolutely no answers. I may never know the answers to some of these questions. Although I hope one day I really do fall in love and can answer some of these questions and then I can write a follow-up blog post about how insane and totally wrong I was….or how totally right I was. Either way I’d be happy to finally have some clarity on the subject.
So my dear readers I ask you..are you in love or have you ever been in love? How did you know? Was it hard? Feel free to answer some of my questions for me in the comments!
