Where are the "Always and Forevers" in a World of "Just for the Nights?"

“And if you’re lucky, if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.”

True Love… Always and Forever.

I grew up in a world where true love and romance were a thing of the past, at least the version that I had. Whenever I saw my perfect someone, I could picture him doing these big romantic gestures or calling me cute pet names. And still to this day, I have some of the expectations. I blame those expectations mainly on One Tree Hill and the love I saw between my two favorite characters, but I also knew what I deserves and what kind of love I wanted.

It seems that in today’s society, love like that is supremely hard to find. In a world of hook-up or one nights stands, it seems like you never hear the stories of the “sweeping each other off our feet” or “I knew from the moment I laid eyes on the person that they were the one.” People tell me I’m crazy for wanting a love like this, but each time I watch One Tree Hill, or read a Nicholas Sparks novel, think of anything Disney related or hey, let’s face it, even listen to a One Direction song; I am reminded of what true love looks like. Love that you can feel in your toes, even if you are not a part of that relationship.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I will actually meet “my person” by fate when all around me there are all these online dating sites and dating apps. And yes, I am guilty of being a part of those; I think I am a member on all of those sites. I’ve heard from people that I could be on those to search for the true love, and that I am setting myself up for disappointment when I don’t get that old fashioned romance, but i’m not gonna lie; it feels great when you get a message that says “ you have a great smile”, “hi pretty” or even a simple “hope you have a great day.” But i still believe in my heart of hearts that my love story will be that of fate. I believe that my true love is out there, not online, but out in the real world and I will meet him when i least expect it. I will meet him and my whole world will spin a whole different way. I will forget what my life was like without him and like my heart is now finally whole. As corny as that sounds, I will find my world. Or as my friends all tell me, I will meet my own personal Nathan, my always and forever… Because I know I deserve nothing less than the old fashion true love and romance that I have always believed in and always known existed in the world.

“Six billion people in the world

Six billion souls

And sometimes, all you need is one.”

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
