  • I don't understand. Other people talk to me about what they consider love, and it is so subjective.

    "I love you" (if you're beneficial to me)
    "I love you" (but if you hurt me deals off)
    "I love you" (if you will do this)
    "I love you" (if you will not do that)

    How are they happy with that? How can they be happy knowing that if they screw up, just because they're human, they can't rely on the one person they should be able to. "I know I can always count on them" (except in my weakest moment, when i really need them, they'll be gone).

    I also don't understand, why despite this, they are still seen to have enough value. Their love is held back, unreliable, has fine print and double standards - but they're still worth it.

    One guys fiance cheated on him. I can only assume he thought he was in love with her, thought she was his life companion, committed to her - and regardless of what they had built together she's now reduced to nothing but a "cheating ho" that he "hates." ...The person you thought you were in love with? That you were willing to commit the rest of your life to? If you can turn it around that fast you never loved her. Either that or you're just lying to yourself - and what's the point of lying to yourself?

    If I love you, I love you. It's just that. It's not going to change despite what you do.
    But I'm never worth it.
    I'm not even worth a car ride.
