Dating sucks. The ups and downs. Good dates. Bad dates. Horrible dates. The blind dates. The Internet dating dates. So on and so forth. Then even if you find someone you'd like to see past the third date, then you're looking at a relationship.
So now you're in a relationship. You've got the adjustment period. The getting to know one another. Meeting the parents. Sex. Fighting. So on and so forth. And then you realize you're in love.
So you're in love. Then you want to get married. You've got the honeymoon phase. The mixing of each other's stuff. Sex. Fighting. Having kids. Promising to love each other until death do you part. So on and so forth.
We go through all these stages in our love lives. Sometimes we repeat them over and over. Sometimes we end up lucky and with an amazing person. Other times we end up with more than one bad apple. Every now and then after a bad date, I will sometimes ask myself "Is it worth it?"
I'd like to think so. I look at my friends who are happily married or in relationship bliss and think "I want that." Then there are times my friends are fighting with their respective spouses or significant others . . . or they are upset because he or she did this and yadda, yadda, yadda. Then I think to myself "Well maybe the single life isn't so bad." Maybe that's just logical thinking being outside those relationships.
Then sometimes I just ask myself "Is love worth it?" Is this bumpy road to love really going to be worth it in the end? So I ask you, my dear readers, what is your opinion? Is love worth it in the end?
