Love is overrated.

You will never find your true love, there is no perfect relationship. Or is there?
Isn't love overrated? Isn't love just something people simply make up in their minds so they can have something to own? Something to get jealous about? Something to brag about? An excuse for poetry? Let's say love was real, that is was as pure & amazing as people make it out to be. If all of that were true, why do we cheat on the ones we so-called love? Why do we continue to hurt the ones we are 'suppose' to love. Should we just remain single for the rest of our lives? Or should we aim for other types of relationships? For example; open relationships, not monogamous relationships, communes, etc..

    Sep 5 2013: MAYBE YES love is never perfect and is something people simply make up in their minds so they can have something to own. But you've just justified it yourself. Love exists because it brings us humans lots of emotions. And, blame it on ourselves, even if we know that there isn't such perfect love, we would still crush on someone, fall in love, become jealous, become heartbroken. That's why love exists. Thanks to love, we get to experience all this. We love, so we envy, hate, believe, hope... and that's what made us humans.
