I believe in love. Love is when someone loves and cares for you and you love and care for them just the same way.

I honestly think that I’m in love, but others would tell me you are too young to know what love really is, but I do know. There is a strong connection between us and we are so similar to each other. Before, I said that real love is where you can’t let someone go no matter what happens, and I can’t do that. We both have been through so much together, but yet we’ve made it this far. Others would have broken up or call it quits after so many fights, but not us. We are the type that like to share our feelings and be true to each other and that should be what love is really about. Being faithful to each other and caring for one another.

Love is a hard word to define to most people, but when you think that you are in “love” with someone, than go for it and give it a chance. There is something that tells you that you’re in love with your partner because you have this feeling towards that person. You would feel different and be different towards that person than in your other relationships. There are two types of love to me, puppy love and real love. Puppy love isn’t real love; it’s when you just want to mess around with everyone you date. Real love is when you can’t let someone go. Even though you fight so much and get hurt so bad, you can’t let that person go because you know that there is no one better than him/her. Everyone has a soulmate. It doesn’t matter if you’re the most gorgeous person or if you’re a little overweight, I still believe that no matter what, you will find your soul mate. Pretty or not, fat or skinny, you will find someone who will care for you for who you are instead of what you look like. Finding your true love would be hard because you go through so much with your past relationships, but you shouldn’t give up. When you say “I give up on love” someone unexpectedly will come into your life and change your life.
