I believe that love is the main part of every human being. I don’t think that there is certain age that someone can fall in love, a little kid will fall in love with his favorite toy and will want it with him at all times if he doesn’t have it with him he will continue to scream and cry until he gets it. This little toy means the world to him it comforts him and makes him happy, this is the same exact way with falling in love with someone.

Id like to think that I’m in love with my girlfriend of almost 6 months, she makes me happy, she comforts me with I’m sad or angry or depressed. She more then willing to be there for me no matter what the price is and she’s happy about it. We’ve gone through a lot in the past but none of it was any of our fault, people chose to say things that weren’t true but she’s proved that she loves me and I’ve proved it to her. People like to think that love is the perfect relationship and that’s far from the truth no one wants anything like that willingly without a challenge involved, that’s what makes it love. If you don’t go through the hard times you’ll never be able to look back with him/her and just laugh it all away or give advice to your children about how to work it out.

Every couple must go through the hard times before they get to the great times. It aggravates me when people say that 14-15 years old is to young to fall in love because the totally wrong that’s an opinion that parents will try to force on to there children to make them believe it because they don’t want there kids to grow up and fall in love so soon. But that’s so hypocritical I guarantee you that when they were our age they were in love and thought just like we do not believing what their parents said, the only difference is that they chose to believe what there parents were saying instead of fighting back and staying together.

Love is what everyone wants to have, everyone wants to wake up in the morning next to their special someone or awake to find there phone ringing or vibrating to a message or a call that says good morning. Love makes peoples day no matter how stressful things are going. Why do you think if people are having a horrible day at work they can’t wait till there break just to give that person who makes them happy a call to brighten them up…just for a few hours till they can see each other.

So in a way falling in love is exactly like that little boy and his stuffed dinosaur or his Buzz Light-year action figure, love is the comfort, the compassion between one another. The proving to people that you don’t have to be compatible or alike to fall in love. Love is…love is… I think love is what ever you choose to make it to be, with whoever, whenever. If you think you’re in love then you’re most likely not, I’m sorry but that’s the truth. But if you know and truly believe that you are then you are and none can tell you otherwise because they have no clue how you and him/her feel about each other and you’ve got to remember that if you are in love you’ll fight to see each other against all odds. So basically I’m trying to say that Love is the main source of all humans without it we are miserable, un fun, and lonely people. So fall in love, it’s our job, our goal.
