Given in a situation whereby you have been in a serious relationship with somebody you love, you guys have been dating for many years, let say 5 years to be specific. Suddenly the other party decides that he wants to leave the country to another place for good, while this is totally not what you want. So you respect that person's decision, the person leaves the country, and along the way another person comes into your life. The new person offers you love, care, attention and even a lifetime. And you start to fall in love with this new person because of other factors too (compatibility, personality, interests, etc) in this case, what would you do?
I can be sure to make a statement by saying that, a more matured person will be wise in making her decision and choose the more practical path. Honestly, we all do not live in fairy tales and as a girl, I personally would choose a guy who is able to capture my heart and at the same time be around for me when I need somebody. When it comes to something as serious as marriage, I would obviously pick the person who can be around me for life, instead of waiting for that same old guy who has decided that he loves another country more than he loves me.
Now truthfully speaking from my point of view. I personally have been in a 5 year long relationship as well which did not turn out a happily ever after as much as I wanted it to at the time. Simply because I did not see a future with the person because I decided that I was young and I wanted to live and discover my life more than I wanted to be with anyone. Besides, if I had to choose, I would also prefer being with someone whom I am fond of who is able to be around for me (at least long enough to keep me rest assured). Love doesn't die off, it merely transforms into another kind of love. Probably not a lovey dovey boy girl love, but a more matured love. In this case, am I not worthy of using the word 'love'? Honestly, I did love that person, but I decided that I love myself more and I chose to live a life where I know I will be happy and carry no regrets till the end.
I guess it all narrows down to the question, which do you love more?
Does all this make any sense at all?
