The equation of love
a + b + ? = love
a = the x factor piece of the interaction from inside ‘person 1’. The ‘thing’ that separates the special yummy naughty fit compatible ones that you don’t think about from one day to the next; from the special yummy naughty fit compatible ones that you are unable to remove from your brain 24/7. So a = the undefinable x factor feeling which can only be explained as far more than attraction; the moments where some kind of connection is forming…
b = reciprocation of the x factor from ‘person 2’ (without b, can love really grow? As without b, there is no joint connection; can love live here???? Do you believe unrequited love is a form of true love, or a feeling that doesn’t quite reach the heady heights of that 4 letter word?
? = list love – a million reasons why you love the person, such as admiration of their character, love of their sense of humour, respect etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc…
Or ? = forbidden love – probably far less than a million reasons why you love, maybe danger, maybe journeys of self, excitement, rebellion etc etc etc etc etc etc
Or ? = listless love – the feeling…no reasons you can even put your finger on…not one etc…
Are any of these ‘loves’ less than each other? Can anyone know the intensity or purity of the love found? whether it’s forbidden, list filled or listless love..I think not
But the question is this? Not which one is most real, but which has the most capacity for longevity?
– A million reasons based on the unchanging pieces of the insides of another?
– Less than a million reasons which are probably likely to change?
– No definable reasons at all?
And maybe the answer is, it all depends on the insides of ‘person 1’ and ‘person 2’. What makes a + b + ? = love, depends on what is it that keeps THEM loving day after day after day. Sometimes, true love is based on nothing, which makes it everything. Sometimes true love is based on the changeable, yet it can remain long after the changes have been and gone. Sometimes true love is based on the definable.
What type of person are you??? Do you personally need b, as well as a? Is lasting love for you…the everything of nothing kinda love; the listless kind; or the highly definable reason filled type?
What brings love to life for you? What style ? makes it last for you I wonder?
