How Do You Define Your Own Love Story
When you think about love, what comes first in your mind every time? I wonder how people define or describe the love story that they have.
Sometimes, people think that the happier they are with their current relationship, the more real the love story they have. Is that what you think as well? But how if this love suddenly ends? How would they react? What would they think about the love they once shared.
I have heard lots of love stories and I decide which ones are real and which ones are, I can't say not real bu,t I think the correct word is "temporary".
Sharing Those Stories
I have a friend since childhood. We grew up together and I can say that I know her so well especially when it comes to love. I know it when she truly loves a guy and I know it when she's just having a fling. Her first serious relationship was with another guy I used to know as well since childhood. He was her I think third boyfriend while she was his first. We were in third year high school when their relationship started. As teenagers, we were blinded by the romantic things they were showing. We saw that they were sharing a kind of love that everyone has been dreaming of. They stayed together for more than two years. During their days, they had not let a day or a moment pass without being together. They were like sharing a single body that one would not go without the other. When my friend went on to college, she had to stay with a relative living nearby her school and she was just spending a day or two in a week in our place. That was the only time they were sharing. Her boyfriend (now her ex), got a job in a food store. He became busy and met new friends, some are girls. There he met a girl that he got a feeling for and his love for my friend slowly faded. Feeling the coldness, my friend chose to break up with him. The love that they once shared had been thrown away. Their love story ended. The more sad part was, it ended up with pain in their hearts. When I asked my friend, "Do you think that was your real love story?" She answered me with, "I guess yes, but I failed to end it with a "happily ever after".
I did not think so.
Compare Above Story To This One
I was watching an evening live show last night. The show had a contest for elementary/grade school students whose ages are 15 years old and above. The last pair of contestants were both too old. The woman was 63 years old while the older man was 73 and he's still in the 4th grade. There's a part on the show where they need to introduce a special person in their life who's came with them in the show. The older man, the 73 years old was with his wife. He told in public their love story. They've been married for 56 years now and married her wife three times. I saw it with how they looked at each other that the love they had since it started was still there and never faded. Even in public, knowing the whole country was watching, they shared their vows to each other, that they will always love each other and that even death won't tear them apart.
I suddenly felt tears rolled down my cheeks. I was so touched. I think that's the kind of love story that is real.
So if I'm about to define what a real love story means,
It simply goes this way:
"A REAL LOVE STORY NEVER HAS ENDING".
How about you? How do you define your love story?
