it seems to me, that people around my age (20) are striving for that special relationship.
the strive becomes such a driving force within us. eg, always looking for oppurtunities, going out all the time just to meet that person, refining chatting up 'skills', even asking out checkout chicks that may be considered a bit inappropriate...
yet i have so many ppl that come into my work and tell me "dont get married mate, stay single for as long as you can!" and other similar statements. sad thing is, i just work retail, these thoughts are bursting out of some people.
from others you can just read it, especially old couples. the way they can bitch and argue about the smallest thing, its very upsetting.
my question is, why do we strive so much so for love now, yet it is bound to fade over the years?
or does it not fade? anyone have any thoughts?
