“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. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.” –1 Corinthians 13:4-7
LOVE is a journey through the ups and downs of living the single life. The excitement of having the freedom, not being locked down to one person. Dating, clubbing, & the concept of hooking up (safely, of course). All the way to the very day you meet the one who would change your life forever. The one you would LOVE. Of course you would love others before HER but, when she comes along you would finally feel the potential of being “in” LOVE. So for me to have a complete thought from a writers perspective, I like to try to tell the whole story. From the lust, to the time you and a “friend” crossed that line, to the desire to want multiple women, to the time you think you found the one but she wasn’t it, to the moment you felt played, to the moment when you played someone, to that very moment you wake up and LOVE is knocking on your front door and it’s HER.
Just like living the single life was a process, being in LOVE with HER is also a process. You have to pace the speed of the courtship. You have to see past infatuations. I think that love between a man and a woman starts at infatuation. Most people confuse the 2. Whether it’s the infatuation of the beautiful shape of woman, to the infatuation of your stimulating conversations, to your spiritual connection. Yes, I said SPIRITUAL! The beautiful thing about life is that we all are connected spiritually. Everything about LOVE is everything about GOD. Then the moment you realize the potential of this LOVE and decide to move forward in a full fledge relationship. When that happens, all other extra curricular activities should end. All that does is cause more confusion. If you are going to make it work with HER it has to be about HER. The longing for their presence, the smell of their scent. The comfort of another woman just isn’t acceptable. You absolutely long for her and only her. My belief.
“When one finds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond pearls. Her husband entrusting his heart to her, has an unfailing prize.”
