Such a tricky question and so many answers, some negative, some positive and some indifferent. I wanted to answer this question and for once not care what anyone will think of it. What I said, in reply was, "Love does exist but its not what we think it to be. Love is beautiful, but hard to be so in a cruel world where man chooses to make it ugly, non-existent, fictional." It's true, we want the fairy tale love, but in reality we can't. Why? because we, humanity are still children to this life force of Love. We have yet to comprehend its beauty, its knowledge, power, essence, its existence within our very hearts. If we knew how to truly love, this world wouldn't be so cruel, so lost and shadowed in what appears to be "love". Love is something beautiful, but we are still to young to know it, in all its entirety.
I'm not a fool, I know what people will think of me if I go around and say this, these thoughts exactly. I'm inexperienced, I've never been in a relationship, let alone in "love" so how could I possibly know what I'm talking about?
I understand people fall in love and they fall out. It feels wonderful and then hurts tremendously. There are wonderful experiences and painful ones, right decisions and stupid ones. I will be no exception to this. The day I find a guy or he finds me, it might be good or it wont. I may fall in love and then out and it will hurt and I will cry for days until I finally decide to move on. I clearly understand its no picnic. But I respect Love and I understand something about it on a deeper level, a deeper knowledge that others can agree with or don't. Humanity is always learning, or trying to, and Love...well that is our greatest challenge, a test we haven't seem to past yet.
