The title reminds me of the book ‘The thing called love’ … I faintly remember the story I guess. Correct me if I am wrong, it talks about ‘true love’ apparently. So many true loves around where the truth changes mirror every other day !
I was just remembering a few ‘so called’ ‘awesome’ love stories around me in the past few years. All had a pattern. First few days of courtship were like – ‘no one else in this world exists’ . After 3 months – ‘ok. I have other things to do’ . After that – ‘Dear ! why the hell do u exist’ 😛
I am not sure if I am right or not, but I believe, every relationship needs a base of friendship. I am so reminded of the dialogue from the movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ which was – ‘Pyaar dosti hai. Agar woh meri sabse acchi dost nahi bann sakti, toh main ussey kabhi pyaar kar hee nahi sakta’
Arey ! call nahi kiya toh nahi kiya. Kisi aur ko dekh liya toh dekh liya. Late ho gaya toh ho gaya. Trust your better half with the fact that, however much he/she roams around, at the end he/she is going to come back to you. Because if he doesn’t, there might be no point in waiting /wasting time.
Life is not the thing to be wasted in trivialities. It is when these small and not at all important issues came up; that I also saw the worst of fights in the awesomest of relationships. Why give so much of an emotional hangover to the one person you are most emotionally attached to ? Why make the other person feel the knots of the strings you are attached with ?
Love, as I see it is much more than just being available for each other. It is more about being available for a 3rd reason as I was told by someone. And true it is. If your relationship doesn’t have a common purpose, making it work might just be a tough call, a drag.
Ok. Love is important. But life needs more. It is the things that love makes you do that constitute life. One could do wonders but not without purpose. Be it love. Be it life.
Being foolishly in love will take not take anyone, anywhere. Because, again I heard it somewhere :
Love is not the heart of life. It is just a part of life.
The day it is more love and less friendship in any relationship, is the day the love graph starts declining 🙂

An eye opener.. thnks..
U are an expert.. main kahan eye openers likh sakti hoon !
expert!!! Well no one can expert love, its so subjective, what may mean love to one, may be suffocation to other…
Suffocation toh tab hoga na when there is no space !
extra care and extra questions are often thought to be ‘suffocation’ ..we forget to draw the line at the right place 🙂
What “extra questions” may mean caring for one, it may mean suffocation for other… There is no fixed position where you can draw a line…
these lines and questions vs care – all depend on the people we deal with !
love love love…love and life both are proportional to each other.
without love life is nothing nd same with life without life love is nothing..!!!
