…or is there, really?
i’m not the romantic type. sure, i’ve had my share of relationships and dalliances – but i’ve also realized that i set great store on my freedom and independence. i came across the quote below by bob marley, and it got me thinking: is there really only “one love” in someone’s life? is there really that one perfect person somewhere? personally, i don’t think so. some might consider this blasphemy, but i’ve come to believe that those who want to find someone eventually will; and those who can’t or won’t settle for just one someone will continue to love, leave, and love again. perhaps that’s why many relationships don’t work out – a type A (one who longs to hear wedding bells) meets a type B (one who hears the metal clank of a ball and chain). who knows? there are always anomalies, but there are sayings that go both ways, such as, “if you love someone you’ll let them go“, or “you know it’s love when you don’t want to be with anyone else“. in any case, i don’t think it can be summed up so simply – humans are complicated, capricious beings.
