Convenience vs. Love

Have you ever wondered how many of the couples you see everyday are actual couples that enjoy each others company and mean the “I love you” they say to each other? I don’t know if it’s just me or there is a lot of couples forming these days. Everywhere I look, two people that I would usually see having lunch with each other are sharing saliva or holding hands or going all at it or many other forms of PDA, which is a completely separate topic that does deserve a discussion. Today I wanna focus on convenience a term I heard a friend use to describe couples around us. It made me wonder though, how many of my relationships have been solely based on convenience? Is that what they have all been?

I kind of reflected on it and it’s starting to make sense to me a little, groups of friends that sort of chill out with each other often end up pairing up, there seems to be a pattern out there. Like I wonder if people say to themselves you know we always hang out anyway so why don’t we just like pair up and take our hormones out…

Sometimes I see relationships that are completely the opposite, relationships that are based on inconvenience, like those couples that have to be away from each other for long periods of time and still make it work, having lived away from home I think they deserve some respect and I really believe that making long distance relationships work takes a hell of a lot of dedication but then again thats a separate topic that I don’t want to mix up today.

In general though do we tend to go after the coworker, classmate, neighbor over the randomer that we met on the train that lives in a different province? So is it love or is it convenience and where is the fine line that separates the two?

    Hmm, that Wiccan priestess lives right across the hall, I should definitely ask her out! I sure hope she doesn’t sacrifice me though..

    This is a very interesting topic actually, I never thought about it that way. You’re right though, in all the “circles” of friends that I am in, I keep seeing people well .. I guess inbreeding isn’t the right word. Are they just going out because it’s simple, since they are friends anyway?

    Ladder theory is the current scientific explanation for the female and male brain. Actually its not really scientific but it’s still a damn good theory.
