As you can see, I'm back, refreshed and ready to bless you all (pause) with another gem of a post. Yea, I know I skipped yesterday's post, but it was a holiday. I was celebrating my independence in this great country we call America....free of glass ceilings and institutional racism, devoid of the remnants of past historical injustice...the land where everyone is afforded opportunity and no one was given an unfair advantage or head start on the race towards prosperity!!!
Tako: You're such a dick.
Who am I kidding. I was SIBE'ing it up. That's why I skipped the post. Bad Bi*ches. LOL. Nah, I was really running a road race in Massachusetts.
And now.....an informative post guaranteed to make you think hard....no homo.
The L words.
Not that I should be giving relationship advice, but ummmm....let's keep the party going.
Would you rather wake up next to someone you think is the most beautiful woman in the world, or someone who you love more than anyone you have ever loved? (Don't kid yourselves, you wont get both.)
If you've quickly answered "someone you love" you're wrong. This wasn't a matter of opinion, its a matter of fact. If you don't love someone, you can always learn to love them. If you aren't 100% attracted to someone, its not a behavior which you can learn, and if you're still in your 20's to early 40's, it means you'll cheat on them or be tempted to cheat with someone you find more attractive. How can I feel comfortable making such a brash statement about love and physical attraction, might you ask??!! I can do so because I know for a fact that neither of them matters. At all.
C4: Explanatory moment of clarity time.
For you see boys, girls and post op tranny's...there are three L's. Love, Lust and Like.
The important thing to remember, however, is that only the last one matters.
Love comes, goes, fades and when at its strongest most influential cusp makes you do stupid, irrational things. i.e.) Marriage.
Lust is all consuming and leads you to think with libido rather than good sense, leaving you essentially blind until the moment you overcome your carnal desire and are left with the byproducts of your hazy, sensuous daydream. i.e.) Having children.
Like on the other hand has never made people do anything other than become more productive citizens and better human beings. Think about it....how many times have you said "I like so and so, so I don't want hurt his feelings", "I Like Michael Jackson so I'll buy his CD", or "I like her, so I'll hang out with her as much as possible." I've never heard anyone say if you "like" something let it go...(or let it go and fu*k other dudes) and maybe it'll come back if it's meant to be.
Love, on the other hand is usually reserved for statements such as "If I didn't love her ass I swear I'd leave", "Love is blind" or "I love her, but I swear I don't like her mean ass."
Lust, similarly, fits into the " I swear it wasn't love, just lust" category.
This is why people are encouraged to be friends with (like) their mates before serious dating and eventual marriage. Sure love and like can eventually co-exist, but just know, ultimately, love will overcome "like" and the relationship will falter. Just be able to spot the moment and you can navigate it successfully.
Think of the love-like-lust dilemma in this fashion.
Lust is like being poor...you want it then, there and in excessive quantities. You are used to not having shit so you want to consume so much that your stomach (or di*k) hurts.
Like is like being financially stable...sure, you want more, but you know that your life is somewhat comfortable and you are content with spending your days exactly as they are now if that's what were to happen.
Love, on the other hand, is like being excessively rich by inheritance. You are constantly looking to upgrade as you have al but forgotten what it feels like to be hungry. You are never content because the grass always seems green on the other side, and hell...you've got cake (money)!!!! you can buy that grass!!!! Sheeeiiit, and when it's used up, you can buy some new, 19 year old grass that smells like Victoria's secret. LOL.
I know I just threw a lot at you in the last few paragraphs, but I'm curious to see what the ladies have to say about my theory, as I ask you once more....
"Would you rather wake up next to someone you think is the most beautiful person in the world, or someone you love more than anything else?"
I've done both...but I'm not answering the question because I know that neither one matters...and all the ladies I make reference to read this blog. LMAO.
