The L Word

The fact that I’m even attempting to write about this subject is pretty astonishing. I don’t know what I’m talking about — I have little to no experience on the subject and apparently I am inherently bad at it. I mean we’re talking about something so powerful that it could bring down kings and queens, destroy entire nations, and even give someone the courage to kill. This is not something to fuck around about. Yet, in our lifetime, we seem to test the concept of love as if we’re sampling food at Costco, try one and move on to the next line. We take it for granted more than anything else. We say things like “Everyone will find love eventually,” and throw around “I love you”s like we’re in a fucking “Barney and Friends” episode. And I think this is great, it’s part of what makes us happy, hearing these words from your loved ones. But have you ever stopped and think, how easy it is to fall in love? I mean I do it all the time. I say that I’m in love with someone (jokingly but sometimes not) within minutes of meeting that person. Well…I’m not going to answer that question for you, since I have little experience in this field. So I’m going to leave it here, and hopefully I’ll find the answer before I die — if not then that’s okay, too.
