Have you found your love?

Something I learned while still growing up.....

When do you consider a girl to be your girlfriend? Ah! It depends! To a puppy love when you were a little boy, you had to ask that little girl to be your girlfriend directly. She could be shy but if she said 'yes', she became your special. Simple as that! You did not have to date her, neither you had to romance with her. Just treat her special by giving her the attention.

Came later when you were studying in the college, when you noticed another sexy and intelligent classmate. Out of the many friends, if you could request a date with her alone, you stood a better chance to woo her. With some effort and attempts, if she allowed you to hold her hand, you were already considered as a boyfriend to her.

Once you completed your education and were venturing into the working society, you met more interesting girls to arouse your attention. Equally those girls were smarter and wittier, they picked the best available man who could reach their loving heart. The one who could hug, kiss and finally bed with considered to be the sweetheart.

Perhaps is not easy for me. Being a grand father in status, respected by the community, old to those who do not know me and yet have intention to find a new love in life. I can't be like the little boy who asked.."Can you be my girlfriend?" Neither can I hold a lady hand too fast to reveal by interest, for it may frighten her too soon. What more if I hug and kiss the lady! Most likely I would receive two tight slaps if I do.

I believe my only approach to convince that lady to be my special was to show her, I do understand the meaning of love deeper than most men she knew. Unless I could see her eyes that showed the joy, trust, confidence and love in me, I would not make the final move. Over a fine dinner with wine and music, I held her hand gently and said ..."I love you dear". If there was no objection, I would approach her with a tender kiss on her face. She might not say a word but her expression revealed the acceptance. Yes! I have found mine, have you found yours!

To my little darling - "Wise men say, only fools rush in. But I can't help falling in love with you" Sang by Elvis Presley.

Things seem to get more difficult when we get older. Love was sweet and innocent when younger.

Hi Robert,

It about being in love and falling in love over and over again...all it needs is patience and the right soul mate.
I know one day it will happen to me.
