oh love

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."
--Dr. Seuss

i long to be in love. but the good kind a wholesome love. where it's not just about showing off to others that you have a make out buddy or that someone actually likes you. whoopdie doo. no, i want the pure kind of love that you see in old people. if you want a genuine example of how love should be, look at how old grandmas and grandpas treat each other. they spend all day together. they are each others best friends. they talk for hours. listen with intent. help the other at any cost to themselves. they just look at the other with love. i want that. i know i am only 17 and talking about love is so ridiculous. but, i am a girl. and i'm not saying i want love right now, because i don't. i want to have fun. but, someday when the time is right, i want to fall deeply and madly in love. and i won't care who knows it. but for now, i want to have fun. after all, i will only be 17 once. and this time is a glorious time. i've learned a lot just in this one year. think of all the things i will learn by the time i can fall in love. thats why i think love needs to wait, because when we are young, how are we really supposed to know if it's real love or lust? i will just wait for now, but, it's still grand to think of how love really is.
