What is L.O.V.E.?
What is love? Haddaway sung it best
"What is love?
Oh baby, don't hurt me.
Don't hurt me no more."
in the most infectious dance song ever created. I bet it's stuck in your head now and you're bopping your head like in A Night At The Roxbury. You're welcome. What is love? Simple question, yes but it's one of the most complex questions ever asked. Love is magic and to be loved by others there is no greater power in the world.
With first love comes first heartaches. No matter how old you get and how many loves come and go, heartbreaks still feel like the end of the world. Over time you learn to deal with them better. Each heartbreak you learn from, but with each one you also become damaged. The feelings may have lessened but the feeling as if your world is ending stays the same. Your world is ending. Everything you thought you knew has changed and then you start over. You look for a new love. And the process repeats itself until you find the one with the duct tape and crazy glue to keep your heart together. We search for love because everyone needs to be loved by someone in order to feel complete.
-Alfred Stuart, Jr.
