Everlasting Love?

We were sitting in the lineup for the ferries the other day, discussing the intricacies of love. Personally, I don’t believe in eternal love. I believe you meet someone and a chemical reaction takes place in both your bodies and minds. Eventually, these chemicals will fade, making attraction, all physical, emotional, and psychological, towards one another harder to experience. I believe eventually love dies and all that’s left is work.

I had made my argument in response to his, that many people claim their love for one-another until the day they die. And just as I was summing my beliefs up stating that I know no one that feels that way, I saw out the car window a very old man walk a few steps ahead of a very old woman that was just moments before at his side, then stop, take a bougainvillea in his hands, smell it, before gently pushing the flower to her face for her to smell. If that’s not love, I don’t know what love is.

“Awwe,” I said, “That’s so cute! He’s stopped to smell the flowers with her!”

My whole argument was lost when he replied, “How long do you think they’ve been together?”

I believe I may be wrong about love.

wish. The DNA wall chart tells the story of your ancient ancestors, based on scientific analysis of DNA you inherited from your father or mother. >From a
simple mouth swab, it traces your genetic line back to the beginnings of humanity in Africa and compares with the database of genetic information from thousands of men and women living all across the planet.

I belueve you might be :)

Hala Tainted, long time! Hope you are well.

I think it is perhaps safe to say that that kind of love is not as common anymore, but it does exist.

In this new, fast world we don't have the patience to work for that everlasting love it seems. It doesn't come for free and it isn't always smelling flowers but, it hasn't died just yet :) I hope.
