What is Romance? I swear, if anyone tells me that it’s defined by sweet nothings, flowers, chocolates and teddy bears, I will so scream. Honestly. Romantic ideas are passe to me know – in the Been there, done that kind of way. Though, I still like the idea of presents (who wouldn’t?) I found myself not really counting them in my list of things I find important for a partner. I also don’t like the idea of LABELS in a relationship.
Things like boyfriend/girlfriend are mere adjectives to me. To me, labels are passe — and they just add confusion and pressure to couples.Though, admittedly the claiming of a “label” is thrilling to some, it’s not for me. Because labels, are what they are, just names -adjectives to describe something or someone. It doesn’t really define what or who the person is to you.
Sometimes, a label is all that is! There was no feeling or no deep connection between them them. Sometimes, the label could be the source of confusion where as feelings and deep connections could really be the defining point of things. Labels bring expectations and expectations that are not met bring confusion, frustration, anger and all negative things.
And who needs that?
To me, a Labelless love would suit me just fine. If someone asks me Who is he in your life? Rather than say “My Boyfriend” or something, I would rather say “the one who makes me smile everyday” I think, that is a better “Label” rather than BOYFRIEND.
