Not Everyone Falls In Love
posted by Michael Olafusi , on ,
Sure, I have met a couple of girls who set my heart on a race. But I have never taken them more seriously that a good source of heart exercise. I seldom remember them 4 hours later. And that's how far love at first sight as been for me.
I have never said the following words to any girl, "I love you". Maybe because I have never said it to anyone before in my life, not even to my parents. Or maybe I have never felt strongly enough about any girl to tell her those words. But I know part of the reason is because I'm not good at teasing people. I like to say things as they are or appear to me. And love is a really strong word. I have heard several girls tell me they love me, mostly to get me to say something. But a very few did really mean it, and I wished they didn't because they made me look heartless.
After it happened to me, I found out that the one thing I can't stand is having someone call me everyday and over 5 times daily. And that's why I think falling in love is not for everyone. Even if by some miracle that I doubt will happen, I get to love one particular person (girl) above every other; I'm very sure I won't come across someone I will like to be around all of the time. So for me, marrying is more like a life event, done because it must be done and not because I fell in love. And the choice of whom to marry will not be an emotional one for me. It will simply be choosing someone I can live with and who will be happy to live with me. And as for dating, funny I always end up winning the girl. But thanks to my not picking calls, never calling back. They move on.
