Earlier this summer I was trying to figure out what love was. What love is. My whole life my parents weren’t together and I’ve never seen two people in love till this year. My sister has been with her boyfriend for about a year now. And they look like they’re in love. They’re comfortable with each other, they’re real and raw. It looks like love and happiness.
I always struggled with figuring out what romantic type of love was. It’s confusing. For example, high school love. Is it real? I had a friend, Jada, while she was dating her ex she told me how they met and everything. They had a lot of PDA at school, if she looked down he would ask her if she was okay constantly. But I remember in class they were kind of mean to each other. There were so many secrets and distrust between them. But they said they loved each other. So I believed them. They broke up recently I don’t know how or why, but was the love real when they were together?
I hear some people go from relationship to relationship telling their Significant Other, they love them. They use the word so carelessly. I don’t even think they know what it means.
I thought I was in love with this guy. Let’s call him Martin. Martin had a crush on me and he told me. At first I wasn’t into him, I just saw him as a friend. I liked his personality a lot and I liked being around him. We hung out a few times and began to have feelings for him. I was completely myself with him, I never tried to impress him, I was just me , and he made me laugh. So I finally told him, but it was too late he was already dating another girl. At first I was okay and then angry. Then okay again lol. I kind of knew his girlfriend, she was nice, but it was awful seeing him with her. But they were cute, so I couldn’t be angry it didn’t feel right. I remember in the middle of the school year I thought I was over him, then I realized as I was getting to know David that I still had feelings for Martin. I liked him a lot. I honestly believed that he and I were meant for each other. I don’t think so anymore. I’m not sure if I loved him.
I don’t think I believe in romantic love. Yeah, my sister and her boyfriend love each other, and I know it’s real but
I don’t believe it.
I do know that I’m going to experience it one day. And my S.O.’s love will come from the Father above.
