Are There Rules To Love?
There was a man who walked into a restaurant one day, hungry and tired. He had worked all day and just wanted to sit down and enjoy a good meal then go home to lazily sit alone doing nothing. As he entered the restaurant he smelled great food that his taste buds could taste and that his stomach couldn’t wait for. A movement from across the room caught his attention and his life would never be the same again. A woman just entered the large sitting area with an apron on and messy hair, she too was tired and was working hard, until this moment. The tray she held serving food to her table was suddenly dropped because the very second her eyes connected to his life all around them had disappeared. She was no longer at work, but rather in a tunnel of love. Could this be? she thought… Could this be love at first sight? Is there really such a thing? Can you really love who you don’t know? As the man approached her he knew she was the one he wanted to spend all of his days with forever and no less. That evening they spoke throughout the night, that year they married, by five years they had a few children, and lived and died together, as they continue to be bound as souls forever and no less.
The Challenge Of Love
Who here watches romantic comedies, reads love poetry or novels? Who here has witnessed true love for themselves or for someone they know? Were there rules involved with this magical love? Was there a certain amount of time it took to fall in love? Is there really such a beautiful thing as love at first sight?
Love can be defined, that much is true. But can love really hold boundaries? Are there certain rules one must follow to have love?
There are arguments and while both sides have evidence that it does exist or that it is merely a fairytale, no one side has outweighed the other. Some say it is possible to love so quickly while some believe that love can only BE once you know each other well and have gotten over the honeymoon stage of hot chemistry… But who is right? are both sides right? Is there even a right and wrong in this emotion we call LOVE? (check out a past post of mine that gives an in-depth look into chemistry ‘To Love Or Not To Love? Chemistry At It’s Finest!’ Click Here!)
We as society are so quick to judge others commitments, emotions, decisions. But maybe there’s no clear answer to this amazing emotion. Maybe it’s luck, being at the right place at the right time and bumping into a perfect match… And you just know it from deep inside, as your heart and soul beats rapidly calling for this special persons attention, time, and love. You’re both bound with invisible ties as if happily handcuffed together.
This post was not to give you a for sure answer, it was written to get you to think of LOVE. What do you think about love at first sight? How do you explain it?
Take care readers!
PS: I came up with this topic after watching ‘Dan In Real Life’ if you haven’t seen it, well then you’re crazy… what are you waiting for?! HA! (in all seriousness you should watch it, it’s a goodie!)
