LOOKING FOR SANITY IN LOVE

You know…I have been thinking about this love thing a lot lately. What is it exactly? Is it that wonder feeling of caring so much for someone or is it a compelling feeling making a fool of yourself. I mean when does it become love. One day you like someone and the next you are a drooling imbecile who just wants to be with him/her. Your friends don’t like him/her. Your family thinks you have lost your marbles and you don’t think anything. You are just out there and I don’t mean out there I mean OUT THERE. Lost in your own little world with the object of your desire who now owns you body and soul. Or, everyone you know loves him/her and still you question it. Like, I have no idea what I did to deserve him/her.

We rarely accept that love happens. I mean really. Love HAPPENS…and then what? We have to work like little buggers to keep it going. WHAT??? We have poured our heart and souls into our mates and now we have to keep them interested. It’s true that they do as well but how, may I ask, did it just happen. Yeah yeah, I know…things didn’t just fall into place. We had to be out there looking for someone, or at least been open to an encounter.

You know I have a great idea. Why don’t we all have signs around out necks. They could say NOT AVAILABLE. Or AVAILABLE FOR TALL, DARK AND HANDSOME. Or….I MIGHT BE AVAILABLE IF…. You have the idea. How much simpler could it get. In the fine print there could be follow up instructions on how you expect to be treated or what you expect. Lists of likes and don’t likes. And don’t forget it should be honest and list all your/their good attributes and faults. And just as he/she is reading your little sign, you are reading his/hers. Then if they match up ….VOILA!!! (that means: expresses success or satisfaction. It would be the same (more or less) as saying in English "feast your eyes on this.") Or something like that anyway. Wouldn’t that be a whole lot easier than this “falling in Love thing”. And then take that “Falling in Love”. Why do we have to fall? Why aren’t we Lifted in Love?

Oh dear!!! I get in deep and I get weird. Maybe I will end this now while I appear to still have some sanity left. Too late you say? If you have any spare lucidness hanging around, send it on over….I obviously need it bad.

BTW-There is no sanity in love, the sole purpose of it, is to drive us mad!

Sign idea is a good one.

Yeah, I guess love does 'happen' but then you gotta work REALLY hard at it to keep it.

I think my favorite part was this:

"What aren't we lifted into love?" rather than falling.

Wouldn't it be so much easier that way? It's odd that something that can be so good has to have so many traps and pitfalls and hazards.

Love is not for the faint of heart, thats for sure. Signs would be so easy, then we could avoid the ones who have a "Freaky Stalker" around thier necks!!!

Love your post! When I start feeling the love funk, I pop in my Love Actually movie and it sets everything right!

Great post! As you saw at my blog, my mind is to occupied with love. It's a chaos!! I can't even take in the questions you are raising my mind is such blur. I'll keep this post in mind to when my sanity comes back

In a strange way, love, true love, the unabashed, unconditional love, may be the only sane thing left!
