Everyone is searching for "their other half". Even when you're not looking, you're looking.
No one wants to be alone even when they want to be alone.
Loving someone and being loved are two different things. One can love someone wth all their heart and not care how that someone treats them. Just as one can be loved and not care how they treat the "lover".
You can't have one without the other.
Hand in hand.
You can be hurt falling in love.
You can be hurt while in love.
You can be hurt when out of love.
You can be hurt still in love.
When you choose to love you also agree to the terms of pain.
Whether in the beginning, the middle, the end or even after, pain will come.
Personally I choose love.
Nothing like the feeling you get knowing someone loves you.
