CRAZY THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE!
Happy New Month People!
I hope that this month of March will be a remarkable one for us all.
So this post was supposed to be for February, the love month, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I couldn't publish it. All the same, here we are.
Quick question, Have you ever been in Love? Yes? How did it feel? Please tell me in the comment section. Being in love and being loved in return is the best experience in the world. So I would encourage you to give it a shot.
I know that some of us have been there, been hurt, and have vowed never to try it again but then how would you have that butterflies in your belly experience if you don't try? How would you know that it would work out if you don't try?
Y'all know how much I love love...
All I have to say is, just try. Now, I mean this with all my heart and my head! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but at least you tried and then you can learn a lesson from your experience and do better the next time.
Oh well, this is becoming a love preaching and that I do not want, so we go straight to it.
What's the craziest thing you have done or experienced in the name of love? Here are a few responses from my fellow bloggers:
I got someone a car and we broke up before it was delivered so I had to sell it to the dealer who was working on the cargo.
1. I took back an ex with her child (the one she'd bore in the relationship she'd left me for). However, sense violently entered my brain and it re-ended in tears.
2. She pulled some strings and I got a white-collar job. (starting my transition from the dance and direct involvement in the entertainment industry)

1. The craziest thing I have done for love was I woke up at 6am walked in the rain to his place (about 3km) to take him his meds because he was in pain only to find another girl nursing him. (I found out that day she was also his diamond eyes). I dropped the medication and walked back home crying. I later took him back we dated for 3 years when I finally realized I deserved better.
2. The sweetest thing someone has done for me was that he dropped me home and then walked me to the gate and gave me a small kiss. Like in the movies (exactly how I always imagined a perfect date ending). It ended in tears though, he dumped me via email.

1. I walked in heavy rain at night with my former lover a distance of 8km just so we could spend time together. He had come to pick me up from campus (evening lectures). When it started raining, there were no public means of transport so we decided to hit the road. Meanwhile, I was in my heeled shoes n he was in his suit. I can't forget how heads kept turning along the way cause we were walking slowly hand in hand and would make stopovers to hug and peck.
2. There is this friend of mine, each time we meet; he holds my hand when crossing the road, holds my waist when shopping, opens doors for me. I find that cute from a friend given that I am a tactile person and he did it from the start without me telling him about it.
1. I planned with one of his friends, and got myself on a 2-day flight to go surprise him! It was so worth it. He was so shocked, he couldn’t even shut his mouth in awe. Just before I left, I told him I was joining my best friend on a retreat so he assumed he wouldn’t be hearing from me for a couple of days. That trip was fun!
2. He called me on a random Friday evening when I’d had a really bad week, and asked me to pack my bags so we could go somewhere for the weekend. Just like they do it in the romantic books, you know? And we drove 2 hours out of town for a really really lovely weekend.
1. I traveled more than 1000km for quarterly visits.
2. He came through for me when I was unfairly arrested and got me out, lawyers, bail, court appearances, and all before our 6 months dating anniversary.
1. After much thought, the craziest thing I've done is wait three years, loving patiently with the notion that he would see... Oh poor me. Previously, however, I once borrowed money to clear a random crisis this man had only to find out later that it was money for alcohol. But I do not regret having loved.
Patricia Opio says
I loaned money to a guy I was dating to start up his company but it ended in tears.
Richard Clive Banda says
I used all of my salary to apply for a passport for my girlfriend but we later broke up.
Love is a beautiful thing indeed. So despite the fact that some of us have been hurt, we shouldn't stop ourselves from experiencing love. I'd love to read your thoughts in the comment section.
Tory Teller loves you and is rooting for you.
