The Longer Ones

Pshhhhh Love? Try Friends.

Am I in a relationship? No. Unless you count friendships.

Do I want to be? Sometimes.

Do I want to be married? No, at least not yet.

I have a few best friends in my life, and fortunately one of them is on campus. She's pretty cool and we hang out literally everyday. CORRECTION almost**. But you get the idea. It's nothing serious, it's like every friendship. We hang out. Make jokes. Study together. Take drives. Regular stuff.

Personally I don't think I'm in love with her (or with anyone for that matter).

However we fulfill each other's desire to have a friend or at least someone to talk to. And though there's times we disagree, we're happy just being here.

Love is weird. People romanticize it for a grand quartet of roses, flowers, sonnets, and maybe a literal string quartet. However I don't think reality works that way. Maybe it does for some people and I don't want to discredit that, they could be feeling it because they met this awesome life-changing person, but I just don't think she's currently in my life (at least not that I know of). Therefore I just keep on moving and be happy.

Lately people have been telling me that being in a relationship is a requirement to be happy, to that I say, BULL. At the moment, I'm starving and as long as there's food in my dorm, I am happy. Secondly, though some people believe that, I think it's only because it's just their desire to have companionship or to finally connect with someone they care about. And if that's true, I'd like to argue that you don't need to be in a relationship to do that.

All you need is a good friend.

Because no matter how awesome or sucky your day has been, they always know how to make you smile again. Thank you.

  1. Oh my goodness. I wholeheartedly agree that you don't need a relationship to be happy. I mean, I've been single my whole life and I'm perfectly fine and happy. If people need to be in a relationship in order to find happiness, then that's just wrong. You're only in it for the idea of being in a relationship and not the person. That's completely selfish and wrong because you're only with that person to satisfy your needs and not considering what the other person feels towards you.
