Do You Believe In Love?

1 comment
I have been contemplating writing this post for a while now, as it is a topic that interests me and I have talked to many numerous people about it and had full in depth conversations about it as I am a hopeless romantic at heart, and since Valentines day has just passed I felt like now would be as good a time as any to talk about it.
I guess the big question as suggested by the title of this post is do you believe in love? I know almost everyone will say yes, as for humans it is only natural for us to feel love. We love our family, our friends, our significant others, we are creatures of emotion, it would be difficult for us not to love, but that isn't what I want to talk about. I want to talk about the little ideas in love, like the idea of love at first sight. I'm always curious as to what other people think about this, so I asked twitter with the options Yes, No and I'm not sure. 87% said No and 17% said I'm not sure. So by the results no one was fully invested in the idea of love at first sight, and I am somewhat inclined to agree. I am a hopeless romantic at heart and I do love the idea of love at first sight, and I do believe there is a faint truth to it in my eyes at least. I believe that you can look at someone and instantly make a connection, whether that is love or something else, I don't know but I think personally to love someone so instantly as having your eyes meet, like in Romeo and Juliet. As much I want to believe in love at first sight as a hopeless romantic, I think love is too powerful and emotion for it to be created by locking eyes with someone. 
Another idea that comes along with the topic of love, is that of soulmates. This is a topic that I love discussing, I remember talking with an ex-coworker about the subject and we talked for hours about it, and I loved it. The idea of soulmates, there being someone who is perfect for you in this world is beautiful and whether that is an a friend or in a significant other doesn't matter. Soulmates are without a doubt something I believe in although I know not everyone does, and that is fine, people have their own views on love, that is what makes it great, Love is different to everyone and everyone has their own definition of it, shaped by their views and their experiences. Personally I have never been in love but I have known the love of friends and family, and I have my own definition and view points on love that I wouldn't change for the world. Love is such an universal topic that everyone can understand and join in a conversation about, which is beautiful, and it leaves me to ask you, Do You Believe in Love?
Please let me know what your views on Love are in the comments as I would love to know :)
