It’s Never Too Late

Why do we fail at relationships every time, despite trying so hard? Can we no longer love?

It’s not love we’re looking for, only excitement in life. We want to share the thrill of adventure with someone, not someone who is predictable and understands us even in our deepest silences. We don’t want a partner for life, just someone who can give us instant gratification. We just spend time together, we don’t make memories. We neither have the time to love nor the patience to deal with relationships. We believe more in meeting people rather than getting to know them. We get into relationships at the slightest attraction and step out, the moment we find someone better. We date a lot of people but never give them a real chance. Everyone disappoints us. We’re busy people chasing materialistic dreams; relationship is nothing more than convenience. We’re the hook-up-break-up generation. We have sex first and then decide if we want to love that person. Getting laid gives us the temporary fulfillment we need. Sex outside relationships isn’t a taboo anymore. We don’t allow anyone in, nor do we step out and love anyone unconditionally. We run away the moment we really find it. We are too guarded to bare our soul to anyone. We're commitment phobic and cannot deal with permanence. We cannot imagine being with one person for the rest of our lives. 

But it's never too late. If we want, we can have the maturity in a relationship that comes with time, the emotional connect that develops over years, that sense of belonging when we barely even know the other person. Love is worth our time and patience. We just need to believe in the concept of love, again.
