Is love really hard to find or just evasive? Is love the ultimate goal of humanity or just a kind of sports to measure one’s strength? Is love all around us or just a cliché? Love… love… love… where art thou?
Modern day romance has retained a certain degree of mystery which is considered as a redeeming factor in the “love department” since time immemorial. But the current trend in romantic involvement in this modern day, be it in the pursue for the one true love… the search for one’s soul mate… or the waiting for the knight-in-shining armor… follows the same degree of ambiguity that lovers cannot explain. And yet, lovers still take a leap of faith into the abyss of uncertainties to find the missing part in their heart. This is however, highly hypothetical.
By now, we already know a lot of love stories ever told. And we can relate to them. We sometimes fantasize some of them. Oftentimes we emulate a few of them.
Looking for love in this age of technology is easy. So it seems. It is an advantage for a woman of my age though. The gift of technology is a blessing in disguise because it became a powerful tool to find one’s heart’s desire.
As you may have known by now, I found my “knight-in-shining” armor online. The internet is instrumental to my destiny. It became my life-line to the netherworld of my strong-hopeless-romantic-optimism. It has nonetheless, saved me from the curse of “singlehood”.
It was a tedious quest so to speak. It took me 4 long years to find the real treasure among the fake ones. I rode the waves and surf my royal b-u-t-t off for 4 long years to find the “love of my life”. Finding the real thing is both exciting and frustrating. I almost lost hope. I almost gave up. I almost let go.
Looking back now, I have realized that “love” is still a mystery. It is still a mystery that one does not want to explain for fear of losing its magnetism. I was not alone in this quest for life-fulfilling pursuit of one true love. And I know there are still a lot of hopefuls who are in search of that one true love. And just like anyone else who believe in one true love… we believe that life is a chance to experience love. So we are willing to take that chance. ©
