I don't know about you, but my friends who have boyfriends always talk about how much they love them and how they think that he's "the one." But really, he probably isn't. And the next one most likely won't be either. And love...most people in high school don't know what love is. When a couple has been going out for a week and they start saying "i love you" to each other, is it really true? I mean, I'm a total believer in love at first sight, but this is taking it way too far. To really love someone, you have to take the chance to get to know them. You can't just wake up one day and decide that you love someone. The feelings have to grow, and over time you come to realize that you do love them. But people throw around the words "I love you" so much that most people don't even know what it is truly supposed to mean. Love is supposed to be two people who know each other better than anyone else, who realize that the only thing they want out of life is to spend it with that other person. Love is supposed to lead to long-term relationships, being with the other person forever, till death do you part. I mean, think about it. To all you couples who say you love each other. Do you really? Would you be willing to stay with that person for the rest of your life? I'm not saying that you have to marry the person you love, and that you only fall in love once during your life. I'm just saying that you should think about how you truly feel, deep down inside, before you tell the other person that. It is supposed to be a major milestone in a relationship, not something that happens overnight.
Is It Love?
