The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Riddle me why, riddle me what
Why do we, as a society, try to make love last forever?
Why do we think less of love that doesn't last forever?
Why do we think love has to last forever?
What is wrong with love or companionship for only a while?
Why do we get attached to things?
Why can't we let things go?

These are questions relative to each person.
My answers would be different from yours,
yet my answers would be right for me,
and yours right for you.

I don't want an answer.
I just want to satisfy.
I just want to live.

Yeah, I'm done being cryptic now. Carry on. :-)

Alas, I have no ideas about love having never legitimately been in love.

Oh yes you do. :-) I have not met a person who has not had a preconceived notion of what love should be, and having talked to you about this kind of thing before I know you do too.

And you're a writer, so ideas are right up your alley.

But those are your notions, and yours to be as you please. There's nothing wrong with them, either, if that's what you have found to best for you.

I'm trying to question the popular belief of what love is and hope people think about what they want instead of doing it just because everyone else is doing it. It would be nice if people could accept alternatives to the mainstream notion of what love is. It takes a lot to do that, though, so I don't really expect anything out of this.

I think that you think you don't have anything to offer because you don't see yourself as worth it. I think that's also wrong; you have a lot to offer. And I don't think that's not true because no one is taking you up on that offer, either. That just means those people aren't receptive to what you have. Despite what you might see or hear, everyone has a hard time finding someone receptive to their own ideas on an intimate level no matter what they are.

Life and love is not dead after thirty or even forty. Just ask d2leddy and vbseth.

Ahem. </rant></ramble>

I came close to writing several responses but they verged on bathos and melodrama. I just... I just cannot think highly of myself.

That's fine, but you can let someone else think good of you.

::blush:: I think if you met me in person you would be very disappointed. I know I would be very tongue-tied with you. Umm, damn, not that way. I wish.
