I was watching tv the other night. Some romantic comedy with Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jack Black, and Jude Law.
Cameron Diaz says to Jude Law, “I don’t think I can fall in love,” and that comment totally resonated with me.
Oh sure, a couple of months ago I was pretty confident I was in love, but really I was just thankful to have someone to care about. It wasn’t the end-all-be-all of relationships.
Matter of fact, it was a downright anorexic relationship, looking back. I was starving all the time.
Is it possible that my love button is broken?
One could say that something is wrong with me. I tend to go through men like someone with a cold goes through tissue.
But honestly, most of the time it’s the man who ditches me.
Take The Israeli for instance. Totally dropped me over the holidays without so much as a phone call or a text.
Then there’s Luke, who met his future wife while we were dating and you can figure out the rest.
Sure, The Hunk is still around, but only in penpal form, not in any kind of substantial way.
Ok, so I’m not in love. Who says I have to be?
Not being in love is a WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE.
- No one to break your budget on spending money.
- No one to argue with you about how to spend your Saturday night.
- No one to fight over the covers with.
Okay, there are some IMPRESSIVE BENEFITS to being in love.
- Someone to hug after a hard day at work.
- Someone who is committed to sleeping with you on a regular basis.
- Someone who keeps you company on nights and weekends so you don’t get lonely.
So I don’t think my love button is broken.
Simple as that.
