My So-Called Love Life

This site -- my anthology -- is the story of a man, a young man, trying to find his way to love. Experiencing everything in between and serving you his heart on a silver-freaking-platter to the naked eye, for the whole world to see; relate, indulge, delve, and hopefully learn from his mistakes.

“Success and the City”

A few months ago, I decided to take a trip to London. The only problem was; I couldn’t decide when would be a good time to go. So, two days ago; I took the plunge. I got off my ass and bought a ticket for the next flight to London. The flight was somewhat long but it was re-assuring to know that I was unofficially taking a vacation. On the way to the airport, I traveled across several bridges and I got to thinking. They say that as you grow older, you create this metaphorically symbiotic “bridge” that reflects on your success; how you’ve grown, what you’ve grown into, and how successful you’ve become. What really makes me wonder is; cars travel back and forth across bridges... what’s going to stop us from going back? At one point, I even came to the conclusion that in terms of success; we build these “bridges” as a crossing or path to our success. But our success isn’t necessarily original considering someone else achieved the same thing(s) we did before us. So, how do we ever know if that’s our bridge? Or if it’ll take us home? They also say that there’s a fine line between loneliness and happiness. Whether that line reflects on the act of being in a relationship, or whether it is based on counting and relying on yourself; prior to being in a relationship; to chase after your dreams and goals. Seemingly, there’s a fine line between everything. There are bridges, sidewalks, boundaries, and even those painted line in the streets that prevent cars from intersecting each other’s paths and crashing. It makes me wonder.... where’s the painted lines that prevent us from infiltrating someone else’s path?
