|Love is truly undescribable, is it? When asked what love is, some would respond that it's blind, some would say it's just a feeling that comes like a lightning bolt that it would have been too late by the time you discovered that you were already in love. Vague answer, yes? hmm Today in our recollection session, my friend had this quote on his name tag -- "Love is Blind." then another friend continued the sentence with "I am blind, so love me." True, it might be blind for I never understood why so many western guys come here to the Philippines to marry ugly Filipino women, when there were a handful of beautiful ones everywhere. Is it the way they perceive beauty that lead them to their judgments differing from the Asian perspective? Or is it that they wanted security, so by marrying an ugly wife would secure their marriage and make sure that she does not cheat? I don't know...it's just so weird Each time I go shopping, there'd be tons of these sort of combination couples strolling about, hand in hand. I remember a filipino guy friend telling me that, "Haha no, those girls were just prostitutes." I see...prostitutes, but some certainly don't look like one.How about virtual love or what is more popularly known as online relationship? If love is blind, then perhaps love can be felt even when the only means of communication was through the computer screen, or sometimes the phone; isolated from each other, barred from the face-to-face interaction, and with everything converted to emotionless words sent through the MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Skype, etc. If love is blind, then whatever means of communication used would not have made any difference. I've read about quite a lot of success stories, as well as sad ones. The trend is, people meet and chat online for a certain period of time, say 3 months to 1 year,then they meet in real life. I admit it can be dangerous at times, especially when you do not yet know the person very well, but of course, not everyone out there is a pedofile, or a wolf On Yahoo, as I was browsing through, there were success stories of people meeting online then getting married in the end, but the important thing is, one of them should always sacrifice, and move to the other's location. In less fortunate cases, some girls get harmed - raped, killed, robbed, etc. In Taiwan, it has become popular for pedofiles to go to chatrooms and try to get young teenagers to bite his bait. Apparently, many did, and then there it was, the series of unfortunate events. Well, taking risks is a part of our lives in every decision we make, we forego a choice and take a risk. Whatever we do, there will always be something lost. So, what should we do with love? Risk everything to get what you want? or play safe and wait for love to find you? The choice is yours. For me, I don't know how love true feels like...perhaps it had already came, but I'd just missed out on it completely, so I had to wait another lifetime? I hope not haha So people out there, you got insights to share? experiences, opinions? come one now, give me some comments, I'd want to learn some new things as well (even if I'd already read so many romance novels) I'm kinda sleepy now, I hope this post isn't sounding too weird Good night to ya'll!!! take care and have a nice day~ ciao ciao~~~ [/FONT][/ALIGN]|
