What is love?
As a person who has never experienced love I find myself unable to answer such a question, yet answers seem to spring to mind.
The way movies, tv shows and the media have influenced us into thinking what love should be is beyond what I could possibly express.
But in an example when asked this question I can say, kissing in the rain, growing old together, talking until midnight cuddling under the sheets while the world continues with their own bust lives and ours stand still for a moment.
These are all ideals about love that society has placed into my brain since a young age. Since the days of disney and princesses, since the day of titanic and the notebook. All these epic love stories have been created to allow audiences to escape from their own lives and watch a perfectly scripted love story play out before their eyes.
However what the audience tends to forget is that these stories are made up and so are the characters, some people spend their lives looking for their prince charming when in reality he doesn’t exist and the fact that we watch these stories to escape from our own lives tends to suggest that this version of love truly doesn’t exist.
All you hopeless romantics out there can tell me that it does and that you and your boyfriend are the exception and I’m not saying I’m against love, I’m just saying that it’s hard to imagine anything ever being like the movies, the fantasy if you will in real life in the reality we live in as I’ve never been in love, yet what surprises me is my attitude and ability to act like I am an except in the field when friends ask for advice.
What do I know? I’m not a member of their relationship. I’ve never been actively in love so how can I give advice on a subject matter that I’ve only heard about through another person’s perspective and experience because essentially that’s what movies are.
I guess what I’m trying to say is why does society build such a high standard on something so simple, since when did all love stories have to be so complicated and complex like the movies? In my mind it alienates it form it’s original purpose to bring two people together in away I guess neither can describe.
Although what do I know, hey noone
