I Love You Doesn't Really Mean I Love You
Does love really mean love?
So you all my know the famous three letter words that can melt a girls heart away. Matter of fact it can melt anyone's heart if the right person says it. But does it really mean what its suppose to mean or are these words said just so people can take advantage of you and use you for whatever purpose they have? Growing up I would always hear my father talk about how much he loved my mother and like wise. The love they had was pure and innocent and true. It was the kind of love that sunny had for the black girl in the movie "The Bronx tale" or the kind of love that Rocky had for Andrean in the movie "Rocky". It was forever Love. A love so strong that no one or nothing can break apart. Till death do them part! Now fast forward 10 to 15 years later and that love is not what it was when I was growing up.
Now that I have become more older and a little bit wiser I find myself contemplating the true meaning of " I love you". Guys in today's society will say it just so they can get "some" or get whatever they want from you, whether it be money, a place to stay, clothes ,sneakers whatever the case may be. I find myself dealing with how to tell if a guy really does love me. Yes don't get me wrong guys are charming characters and they will say or do anything just so they can have control over you. I'm not saying women are dumb but when it comes to men we most definitely are. We allow men to do whatever they want without any consequences to their actions in the name of love. Trust me I know, I have gone through it and still do. I ask myself every night if and when will I find the love my parents had. Why can't a beautiful girl like myself and so many out there find a partner that turly loves them for them and not because of material possessions. When a guy tells me he loves me I suspect that he does and just do whatever he commands of me because that's just my nature but just like how the devil was an angel first, wolves can also come in sheep's clothing. This meaning that a guy may appear so nice and gentleman like, he may say all the right things and do all the right stuff but there is always two sides to people. Behind clothes doors the "wolf" may come out.
So do I honestly believe that "I love you" really means "I love you"? No I don't!! I may say it and believe that when I tell someone I love them I really do but that's not the case for most people out there. I guess some people blame human nature on how they act. They may say that they are a playa or that's how they were raised. But I believe that no matter where your from or who you are " I love you" should always have a universal meaning. What do you think?
