So I’m just going to come out and say it…..
Since when did the act of confessing ones feelings and admitting your adoration with depth and detail become a dying trait in humanity?
Since when did it become something that would be considered “uncool” and “try hard”
Maybe it’s just me but I see nothing wrong with knowing what you want and being certain you will do what you can to woo this said person. That being said, one should know when it’s time to throw in the towel because this person is not reciprocating. There is a big difference between certainty in a shared intimate tension and straight up delusional stalking. Maybe because there are so many options out there now, and so many ways of meeting people, humanity has become disconnected, unsure and inattentive to what is right in front of them. More than ever I see humans who lack the ability to just go with a feeling, trust their gut, and make a choice regardless of what the outcome may be.
And this is not a question of romance and happy endings, it’s simply asking yourself to be open to the direct opportunities in your life and letting go of the “Hypothetical” person in your mind. Why not enjoy yourself in the moment and not be so quick to trade in for the different model that doesn’t even exist yet. You have the right to choose who you want to be with, but you also have to look at yourself honestly and see what you give to a relationship. You want that “appreciative, caring, understanding, patient, fun, sexy” person … well guess what, they probably want that too! so you have to be willing to devote to those characteristics and put in the effort. Like most things in life, if you give it a try, you will find it’s not so bad and it’s actually kind of great.
-Chloe Anne Lloyd
“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.”
