What Is Love?

Is love an open door or something more?

What Is Love?
floressantfriday.com

Love is an amazing thing. Everyone can relate to it, whether they love something or they are in love with someone. As a hopeless romantic, I love romantic comedies and other books and movies that deal with love and all the romantic sappy stuff.There are tons of movies, books, poems, artwork, and songs that talk about love because everyone can relate to the feeling. One of my favorite quotes about love is actually from the Bible- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a to be exact; "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." I think that this one of the best ways of describing love because love can be difficult to define because there are so many versions of it. Love can be of an object or idea, family, friends, pets, significant other, or something else.

So the question is, what is love? When you ask that question, some people will reply with "baby don't hurt me no more", a lyric from Haddaway's What is Love. I feel like it can be a difficult feeling to really describe, but actions can help express what love is. Just by watching the people around you can give insight to what love is about, whether it's watching your parents, family, friends, or strangers. I feel like it's the little things that mean the most to people because they see that their person understands and knows them. It can be anything from wearing a certain shirt because you know that your person loves how that shirt looks on you, knowing what their favorite superhero is, what side of the bed they like to sleep on, to knowing when they just need to be hugged.I want to be able to go on adventure and do random silly things like just driving somewhere because they have great chocolate chip pancakes, having a late night dance party or watch random documentaries about things we're passionate about on Netflix.

The great part about love is that it can happen to anyone at any point in life, often it comes unexpectedly. With that, it could also mean you waiting longer than you expected to find love. Don't settle for love. A great, real love is worth waiting for and will be worth every minute of heartbreak or loneliness that you have felt. I personally have never been in love, I thought I might of once or twice, but I'm still waiting on that day that I find my person. In the mean time, the only thing I can do is work on myself and enjoy the life that I have been given, knowing that one day I will find what countless movies, songs, books, and people talk about.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

7735

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.
