Love is magic, right?
And I guess magic doesn't like to be chased.
So how do you want something without chasing it? Is it a mind trick? You tell yourself "Ah, I don't mind waiting a hundred million years, yawn, I've got a million things to do" so that you'll finally catch love unawares.
Yeah, right. SO NOT working.
While I continue to enjoy my single, uncluttered, unfettered relationship status, I have discovered that it is hard to bury the romantic in me (Extremely hard while being exposed to Rabbi's songs and movies like 'P.S: I love you') So, I'm embracing my romanticity. I'm no Mills and Boons but I cannot subdue an 'Awwwww!' whenever Ross and Rachel get back on 'Friends'. But there are some lucky ones who can live without the magic because they've experienced it in some other form, like finding God or because they have children whom they love unconditionally.
But, for all my single (and seeking to mingle) friends out there, here's what I say: it's okay. Join the club. Don't be afraid that you miss love or yearn to experience love, whatever the case may be. It doesn't make you weak or desperate or incomplete as a person to feel what you're feeling. I don't think there's any other magic that can replace being in love (and being loved! VERY important!) no matter how many coins you've collected or how many parties you've attended. If you like someone and it works out, WOW! But if it doesn't, move on with a smile on your face. Atleast if you've had a taste of pure magic.
