Let me start by saying that I’m 24 years old and don’t have a clue what I’m doing when it comes to my love life. I went through a few crappy boyfriends in high school, most of whom cheated on me or ditched me because I thought I was too young to have sex. I guess I had about as much luck dating in high school as to be expected. Nothing interesting there.
Go crazy, they said. Do whatever. Nobody's really looking to see what you've got going on.

As it says in the advertisement of this website we have to write about what we love. Have you questioned what is love?
Once upon a time there was a light in the life of my years. The engaging newfound scenery and sparking romance brought promise. Said promise fell through similarly to the unwavering complexity of a spatial black hole. The mornings sang with an abundance of hope and the nights laid waste to human, physical interaction. Exploration was prominent and vital to the time-stamped glory. Joys and wonders came aplenty; fears and doubts joined hand in hand, though the former took precedence. Masking insecurities stayed hidden within perplexities of this dynamic. The truth was cold, bitter, and utterly terrifying. Could this path truly stay to last? There is no wandering in a personal self-loathing of what once was. The sanguine paradox wrapped in expiration was surely to fall upon us—there is no escaping the penultimate peril of loves former embrace.
What is love? This question has been asked many times throughout our lives here on Earth. The meaning of love, the meaning of life, the meaning of living on this Earth are all questions with unique answers. Some would pick answers that go towards a technical view on the topic, while others would pick an answer that would be unique towards that person. Love, in the dictionary, states an intense feeling of deep affection. The definition is quite vague compared to what other people say about it, creating your own definition of love, creating scenarios that signify love in its strongest form. The definition of love goes farther than what the eye can see. With different perspectives on what the definition of love is, love is truly a universal definition all on its own.
This would be my third school this year, and it was only November.
There I am, 22 years old, my world crashing down. You see when you are young and have yet to experience the world, it’s easy to believe that when something goes wrong it’s the end of the world. That’s exactly what I had believed. Along with that belief a fear began to rise up inside me.
It may be an unpopular opinion, but I don't believe in soulmates. As far back as I can remember, I never thought soulmates were a real thing. It's something you see in the movies, or read about in books. It's a work of fiction. Why? Because to me, it's a really depressing concept. The idea of soulmates was first spoken of very early on by Plato. Then in the early 1800's, poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, wrote in A Letter to a Young Lady, “To be happy in Married Life... You must have a soul-mate.” Thus introducing the concept to the masses.
That bright morning in Los Angeles, California, I saw the sun beaming through my shades. I woke up slowly to my husband greeting me with breakfast in bed.
If someone told me three years ago, that my life was about to be turned upside down, that I'd be happily married to a man that was sat, waiting for me to enter his life through a chatroom of all places, 3,397 miles away from here, I'd be on my back laughing hysterically at them.
What is love? Some people ask me. Meanwhile, I ask myself, what is love? I ask myself, do I know what love is?
