She loves me,she loves me not.He loves me,he loves me not.
There are times when I believe that the world just wants to be lost. I say this because we have taken something as simple as love,and turned it into one of the most complicated actions in our lives. Romantic love,between a significant other,should be a wonderful affair that grows with each moment, and gives you a sense of security and joy, that no other human could even come close to providing.
But like I was telling a friend, we have basically turned this simple act into something that is damn near twisted. When did we start needing background checks, and proof of identity, to even begin a relationship. It seems as if we live in a time where our mistrust and fear of being hurt, has hardened our emotions, and made something that should be so easy, so very hard.
Now don't get me wrong...I'm still a," glass is half full kinda guy". And there has been a few times that I've wished I wasn't such a romantic optimist. Because so many women have mistaken my kindness for weakness, ooooh were they wrong. When it comes to disrespect in that form I am a "one strike kinda guy". Because in my adult life I have believed that,"you can respect someone you don't love, but you can never truly love someone you don't respect".
I see it like this...anyone that would intentionally betray your trust,has committed,"1st degree romantic homicide". And living in Texas, I believe that relationship should get the death penalty. And believe me, I have carried out this sentence more times than I can even remember. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not some kind of romantic sadist. But in the past when a woman tried to abuse my love, I executed that union without remorse. Because remaining in a bad relationship, is kinda like being in a pool of romantic quicksand. The more you fight it, the quicker you sink.
Once you have dedicated your undying love to another, uncertainty should not be a consolation prize. Love and doubt, are like oil and water, they don't mix. Just look at it like this...the more room you provide for one, will mean less space for the other.
