Controlling your own life is already daunting enough in itself, so why attempt to control someone else’s as you guide them onto your love train of thought? Time and time again I see it happen, and it always amazes me that people truly believe that when something’s “meant-to-be” it should be. It never fails to terrify me just how far they’d go to make it so. I’ve even come close to terrifying myself, and I think I finally understand why masterminding your love life happens. It’s entirely due to mixed signals and just having no idea of what to do with them. There’s always acting on your feelings and risking being utterly rejected, or just letting them slide by only to find out that they’d been returned in full force. Before. It’s a crazy cycle, and I think instead of focusing on the how to find someone, we should all focus more on the why you want someone, and the kind of person you need, rather than want. You can’t plan love, but you can plan a disaster.
