What do I know about love? Not much. actually 🙂 I’m only married for 5 years, so I can say that I am NO expert when it comes to the talk of love. So what made me write a post about love? Couple of days ago, I started watching “Bachelor in Paradise”. I know, no judging okay? 🙂
If you don’t know what is this show all about. Let me give you a crash course about it. It is a reality show for men and women who are expecting to be engaged or find love at the end of the show. They will live in a beautiful paradise (beach) somewhere in Mexico. All day they are hanging out, getting to know people, drinking, having fun, “connecting” and of course lots of kisses. Every week you need to pick your partner and if nobody picks you, you will be out from the paradise. It’s an alternate weekly process between men and women.
Now here’s the twist, every day the production will bring in very attractive men and women to join the mix. These people are also looking for “love”. I’m pretty sure you know what’s going to happen next – more drama, crying, heartaches and the works.
I am very entertained. Some say only dumb people watches this kind of show. You can call me dumb, but I was really entertained and fascinated. I know not all people that joins the show is really looking for love, they may have millions of agenda. BUT I can see how some contestants are desperate to find honest and true love.
The contestants need to stay in the “paradise” for 7 weeks. Surprisingly some couples were able to find “real” love, got engaged, and get married. I know there’s really a possibility in finding the love of your life in 7 weeks. Who am I to judge? But you know what really amaze me, how people perceive love differently.
They are living in a controlled environment, with a theme of “spring break” sprinkled with lots of abs and boobs. Give them 7 weeks of kissing. Alas I found love. Don’t judge me for saying that I believe them. Because we perceive love differently.
For me love is my promise to my husband to be with him through good and bad times. For them love can be having a connection and being too compatible. Or to some people, love can be accepting your differences and living in harmony.
So what do I know about love? Only one thing. Love is many things. It’s not for us to judge. Love is respect. Love is happiness. Love is sacrifice. Love is you.
