Not too long ago, someone i knew tried to quantify love. It was a simple discussion session filled with laughter, until someone brought this topic up.
The core question was: Would you give your all when you are in love?
Being an open-ended question, there were many answers and feedback from group members. For me, i believe that I gave my best to XeROz, and i confidently can say that he gave his best to me. However, there are times where we make some reservations for ourselves. We need to be a little selfish..haha..but in an acceptable way for both parties lah!
Love, being a subjective thing, cannot be quantify or measure. It will sound ridiculous if somebody says "Today i love you 70% because yesterday you hurt me." or "Since you kiss me today, i'm going to love you 100%". I wonder if anybody can adjust their love in percentage. So if I'm angry at you i'm gonna love you 20%?
But there will be time, when you feel that you love him lesser than it used to be. Could this be a symptom that you no longer feel attracted to him? Well, I don't know...
Another friend told me, NO MONEY = NO GIRLFRIEND. Well i agree with his statement. Without money to even feed yourself, don't ever think of having a girlfriend. I mean, if you love that girl, would you want her to suffer without food with you? There's no such thing as "when in love, drink water also will full" (direct translation: oi qing yam sui bao). But sometimes, this too is hard to justify.
- If no money=no girlfriend, then all poor people cannot fall in love?
- How much money only can have girlfriend?
- Do the boyfriend have to pay for every expenses of the girlfriend?
- What is the cost of maintaining a girlfriend?
and the list goes on...
Another question that arise during the discussion was -
Is sex necessary for a dating couple?
Can sex prolong the relationship duration?
Hmmmm....what do you think?
