i believe that (unless you’re a psychopath) people can hold love for so many things. people, objects, even places because love is a deep admiration.
but in my opinion, you can only fall IN LOVE once. there’s only one person who you’d choose each and every time, only one that you can ever truly be meant for. this doesn’t mean i believe in soulmates, because i don’t. nothing is meant to be, that’s honestly a fairytale ideal.
you can love many. but who would you actually miss so much so, you’d give up everything you could because you’re that desperate to see them again?
and “love at first sight”? i have mixed feelings here. as i said, love is a deep admiration so yeah, you could love one’s appearance. not their mind and soul, however. so technically it’s just lust.
oh, and i don’t think saying “i love you” is necessary. if you need that validation, then that’s totally okay. but i wouldn’t want anyone forcing me to say that since it’s pretty uncomfortable. it doesn’t mean that you don’t care about them, it’s like marriage. i don’t believe that marriage is important either, i wouldn’t want to get married unless my significant other truly wanted it. i’d do it for them because i would only ever marry someone i sincerely saw me being with forever, that’s it. marriage is just a confession of love on paper.
i don’t know, i guess the word “love” means nothing to me because of how loosely we use it.
“i love fruit!”
“i love the originals!”
comparing these enjoyable things to people you are supposed to care deeply about? yeah, not for me. like i said, no disrespect to others with a different opinion!
