I’ve had one significant other, three long term relationships and one I loved you from afar but you never gave me the time of day so I never said how I felt because I knew you would crush what heart I had left. For years I thought the latter was real love but not …not so sure. Infatuation can really paint an really good fake Mona Lisa. In fact I am more or less sure that that one would have been a disaster had it every gone anywhere.
SO that leaves me with the significant other and I know now I was never in love and of the other three maybe I was in love once. So thats why the title started out being one but like I said not sure it isn’t two because infatuation that never got to go anywhere wears a real good poker face and it might have been wearing the real cards. All of which got me to thinking. I’ve met a lot of parents from my Mom and Dad’s generation and a lot of them seem so alike to my parents even with some of the same parenting styles. SO why is it that with all that similarity out there in how we were raised do the children come out so different that you can’t find more than one or two your whole life that make you fall in love? I’ll think about that for awhile and get back to you on the answer.
