I came across a nice text, I just have to share: I found it at Natasha’s blog as the entry “Midnight thoughts”:
It’s become such a rarity nowadays to find somebody to fall in love with and stay in love with. People seem to forget how beautiful it is to grow old with someone, to build and witness someone’s progression and to conquer obstacles as a TEAM instead of facing them alone. I guess it’s safe to say that there’s not enough thrill in that for them. There’s no thrill in comfortability and knowing someone like the back of your hand. I guess that’s why you can say I’m an old soul. I don’t need to go out all the time and switch people up every other week to fulfill my boredom with temporary happiness. I always wanted something real, someone so GENUINE that they are worth lasting a lifetime with. Someone who’s willing to invest the time and effort that’s needed to win, instead of forfeiting when “there’s no coming back.” I understand it’s nearly impossible nowadays to count on someone with all your heart and soul. It’s more dangerous, if anything, but I guess that’s why you can count me as one of the rare ones. I’m not in it for a reason, season or lifetime. I’m in it for all three!
So true… But I think not only love faces this “problem” of modern society, even simple friendships are… It seem so many people befriend someone having the same hobby or interest, but once this hobby/interest changes, they just change their friends with them. A sad development, isn’t it?
