ASK GABI: Quit looking for love

By Gabi Piña

I’ve always been fascinated by our society. I love talking to strangers who will give me any insight into their lives. Lately, I’ve been paying attention to the relationships people maintain with their partners.

It’s absurd that a person can claim to be in love with someone while still being flirtatious towards others. I’m no expert, but if that’s occurring I don’t think you’re in love.

If you’re committed to someone and you find yourself flirting with others, odds are you’re not ready to be in a relationship.

I am one of many walking amongst the vast sea of people who have never been in love. Yet, I’m pretty sure feelings that strong should be reserved for someone who means the world to you.

People complain about love on a daily basis. No one is at fault but us. We throw around the word as if it were spare change. It seems that people are so desperate to feel some form of affection that they’re willing to settle for less than they deserve.

Settling will definitely not make you happy. It will not make love magically appear out of thin air. This is reality, not some sort of fairy tale. Don’t spend your life looking for that special someone. Live and enjoy life to the fullest.

When the time is right and when you’re least expecting it, Cupid will pay you a visit. It will come to you in a form that you’ve never believed possible. At least that’s what I hear.

Signing off, Gabi
