“I didn’t choose you. I just took one look at you, and then- there was no turning back”
Do you believe in Love at First sight? You might think it’s a bit too too cliche’ in fact it’s really too corny and ridiculous. But at the end of the day, a lot of people believes in love at first sight, like when people believe in fairy tales and Santa Clause. I guess it’s just a matter of your own opinion and beliefs, until you finally have someone who knocks you out in the open, causing you to wake up and realize that everything you’re believing in is just some sort of lie.
The world as we know it, is full of surprises and secrets. Full of unknown, hidden darkness at every corner. As young as we are, we’re tossed in this kind of mystery trying to find our way on our own, while we continue to learn and realize things in our own simple way. And that’s what everyone calls as “growing up”. But I guess not everyone really “grows up” in that matter since maturity is not likely to be always defined with age. Maturity as we know it, comes from experience.
I don’t want you guys thinking that I’m just another kind of bitter person here in the internet, trying to ruin your little fantasies and those “forever” things that you are saying, which I know exist only in fairy tales. I’m here to tell everyone that it’s okay to believe in fairy tales, as long as you get a hold of a little reality with you.
Love at first sight? What are you even saying? Do you even know what love is? Maybe you’re just having a little misconception between love, and lust at first sight. Because at the end of the day, you only get attracted to someone based on their positive attributes or so. In reality, we get married because we love someone right? So putting it simply, would you marry someone whom you just met because you’re already in love with them the moment you laid your eyes on them?
Of course not. Everyone would have that kind of answer. Simply because you need to know that person first, before you’d marry them. Now the question comes, would you love someone whom you don’t even know? Would you entrust yourself to someone whom you have just met and marry them at that very instance?
I don’t believe in love at first sight. It takes a lot of time before you completely, truly fall for someone. But I believe in a moment. A moment when you look in someone’s eye and at that very moment, part of them belongs to you and part of you belongs to them. At that very moment, there’s no turning back.
