I got this from a website and found it quite interesting and has me thinking:
L O V E … .
No one falls in love by choice, it is by CHANCE. No one stays in love by chance, it is by WORK. And no one falls out of love by chance, its by CHOICE.
To my friends who are NOT SINGLE: Love isn’t about becoming somebody else’s “perfect person”. It’s about finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.
To my friends who are SINGLE: Love is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But if you just let it fly, it will come to you when you least expect it. Love can make you happy but often hurts, but love’s only special when you give it to someone who is really worth it. So take your time and choose the best.
To my friends who are PLAYBOY/GIRL TYPE: Never say “I love you” if you don’t care. Never talk about feelings if they aren’t there. Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart. Never look in the eye when all you do is lie.The cruelest thing a guy can do to a girl is to let her fall in love when he doesn’t intend to catch her fall and it works both ways…
To my friends who are MARRIED: Love is not about “it’s your fault, ” but “I’m sorry.” Not “where are you, ” but “I’m right here.’ Not “how could you, ” but ” I understand.” Not ” I wish you were, ” but ‘I’m thankful you are.”
To my friends who are ENGAGED: The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together but how good you are for each other.
To my friends who are HEARTBROKEN: Heartbreaks last as long as you want and cut as deep as you allow them to go. The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks but to learn from them.
To my friends who are NAIVE: How to be in love: fall but don’t stumble, be consistent but not too persistent, share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand, and get hurt but never keep the pain.
To my friends who are POSSESSIVE: It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else but it’s more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you.
To my friends who are AFRAID TO CONFESS: Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you love has no idea how you feel.
To my friends who are STILL HOLDING ON: A sad thing about life is when you meet someone and fall in love, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and that you have wasted years on someone who wasn’t worth it. If he isn’t worth it now he’s not going to be worth it a year or 10 years now. Let go…
