Today, I received a text, saying "I Miss You".
It's flattering when someone thinks of you in a very special way, especially when that someone is from an opposite sex. The thing is, i think of him as a little brother whom is in need of some special attention, he is by the way... 6 years younger than me. Lets just called this little brother as SiG, shall we?
SiG is a very special young man, where thru reading his blog...i feel that he's a very sensitive person by nature. A young man who needs guidance in realising his fullest potential in life. A person who's smart intellectually, but a little tangled when it comes to emotional side.
Main reason why i blog today was purely explaining the mechanical side of how people fall in love and some, having a crush, deep crush...almost similar to falling in love but a little different, in my own word.
I came to know about this crush thing when i was about 8 - 9 years old. Where if you have been following my journey (Blog, obviously !) you'll noticed there's an write up about it in here
Well some more of it coming up soon ;) (my case..sooner than u think hehee) but just to show that i know how it felt to be, having a big crush on someone ;), really BIG CRUSH.
Those days, i thought i was IN LOVE with that someone, until one fine day i woke up and then...the feeling was totally gone....and it happens just like that. After a series of falling in CRUSH with different men....i come to realise that, crush normally lasted very short, say about a week, a month, a year ( the longest i fell in crush...heeee) When i said, having a crush, i meant having to fantasized about this particular person without having any solid relationship which doesn't includes SEX.
Normally, when you have crush on someone...you fantasized about this person, the thought and everything about her / him lift up your mood. Be it, the smell of her / his perfume, body sweat, gestures, specific body parts eg. eyes, lips, mole, face shape, fingers, neck, waist, bossom...etc...even legs...for my case, teeth (bizarre but true...bahahahaaaa) will always reminds you of that specific person. Even to the way they talk, tone of voice, certain sentence, words....etc...even the way they laugh...and the funny part is...the minute you get to know about their flaws....the feeling that you thought was love....fades....some can be overnight, some can take a while...but the main point here is....it fades....that's when you know, what you felt was purely CRUSH.
When it comes to love, about the same as the above mentioned, the difference is it lasted even until you think you found someone to replace that particular person. Even how far you go, even after you guys didnt see each other for the longest time, the feeling is still the same...and it'll never go away. Even after you found out a lot of their flaw...weaknesses...hidden demon or whatever you called it...the feeling is still the same....you'll even feel that you're not complete if you don't have that person next to you or in your life. Sometimes....no matter how long apart you guys were away from each other, the thought of that specific person keep haunting you. Some of the places will triggered that nostalgic feeling and will make you wonder, where is he / she? How is he / she doing? How does he / she looked like now? And a million other questions that comes with the thought of that particular person.
Some recovered from it, some choose to never forget about it, who thinks of that special someone dearly no matter wether he / she is already with someone else...some just couldn't recovered from that so called severed broken hearted case. Which comes to my bonus question of the day....Which one are you?
As for me, i tasted all of the above....so go figure ;) ! I still think nothing can beat the feeling of being in love and at the same time loved by that special someone. That's when you know, even if you have two left feet syndrome...youwill definately tango like there's no tomorrow!
Before i sign off, I would like to salute those who have found their GREAT BIG LOVE in life...no matter wether they've lost it due to religion, death or even simply because of indifferences....that may love prevailed and especially those who've been looking but never finding IT ;). May you find what you're looking for, altho some may have to cross the ocean or wait patiently for it to finally appear at their door steps.....
