L O V E
*Starts singing L.O.V.E by Nat Cole*
L is for the way you look at me.
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore
To me, there are two types of love. There's a romantic love which is most often what people refer to and then there's a more friendship style of love. There is more to both of these types of love that some people don't really think about.
The platonic love, the kind between friends, can turn into a romantic love depending on the situation and I feel like a romantic love can turn into a platonic love. I believe that it is possible to stop loving someone that way.
Is there such a thing as love as first sight though? I would have to argue that there isn't. You can't love someone that you've only ever seen. (Rethinks every fangirling decision ever)But I do think that it's possible to love a person when you first talk to them. Their looks may be an added plus and you may be attracted to them but it's not until you can get to know that person that you can actually fall in love with them... their personality... their soul.
I feel like true love is something that is given to everyone whether it be platonic or romantic. Everybody has enough love to go around even if they may hold it inside and be unable to show. I believe that some people need to learn how to open up and love people.
I also believe that you do not have to see a person's appearance to fall in love with them rather its platonic or romantic.
So over all... that's my opinion on the subject of love. Not that I'm experienced 'cause I'm not. But I hope you enjoyed my little.... unprofessional essay on LOVE.
