(Before I get a whole bunch of posts about being biased, that's the whole point of my posting this.. So please, calm down.)

As many people do, I found myself thinking. After watching so much Anime, and reading so many books, I couldn't help but wonder, does a romance like the ones we find in such material actually exist? Well, let me be more specific. Is there something where the two are friends for a while, then through some sort of lifechanging journey, or over time, they become to develop feelings for each other? It's just that in today's world, all I see are people approaching each other, guys and gals, out of lust, physical appeal, for reasons besides what I believe should be reasons for trying to get to be with someone. I think that a lot of people are moving too fast, which is why we're ending up with teens pregnant and getting married before they even turn twenty. I know we're not perfect and all as humans, but when did the world become full of shallow people? People who don't understand other people's feelings? Hell, what am I saying, it's been like this for years, but now it just seems more.. prominent in our society. Kind of makes me wish I was born in a different time.

A time where people didn't use the word " love " so freely, it just has lost it's meaning to me.

Uhm.. so, yeah. Thanks for reading through my rambling, I lost my inital thought and improvised.. I'm horible. ^ ^;

If you crunchyroll people would be so kind as to grace me with your opinions, I'd really appreciate it!

The kind of love that you see in an anime/manga, books or movies is what you could say to be somewhat of a 'fantasy love'. It's what a lot of people wish and expect it to be and feel like because of it we have developed a high expectation of it.

Due to this high expectation, a lot of people dive into relationships in their infatuation stages believing that the person they are with is the one that they will spend with their whole lives. This however only generally happens with people who have their first relationship because they've never felt this sensation before. That's why you tend to see horny teens, people approaching people for lust, quick break ups because they are unable to understand and control these feelings.

People who have been in several relationships don't take it to this side. They can understand and control it. They see love in it's realistic and straightforward ways. They take caution because they know that love also hurts. They learn from each of their relationship and doubt every forthcoming. Is this really the person for me? Do I actually love him/her? Do I see him in the future with me?
Are some of the questions.

Correct me if i'm wrong. But yeah, these are some of my opinions on love.

Dear Mitijax... *Clears throat* Ofcourse things like that happen in real life, but it only happens to some people. If it happend to everyone it would be a strange world to live in, but I know it exists. You know... that whole story with "Friends devaloping feelings for eachother". It happend between me and a girl I've known since I was about ten years old. I barely saw her for a while and then, BOOM! She was right there in the same High School as me. We were both interested in eachother, but nothing happend since I didn't know what the hell I wanted to do.

Though I could have made something out of it since we both felt the same, but there's your proof. True Story! You might get the same chance one day, and if you want it as badly as I think you do. Go for it!

Yea, it seems today's society has become very sexualized. Ive never really heard any stories worth writing a book about, but there are countless college or "high school sweetheart" stories.

I think maybe it happens more often than we think. For example, two people who like anime meet at a convention... and a friendship ensues. And some of those friend couples may actually develop feelings for each other...

I once read online about a very old couple who were still deeply in love with each other and who would often go places holding hands, there were several pics of them, but that was years ago and I just don't remember now which web site had the article. It was quite an interesting read. This couple was like, always always in love with each other.

People run away and give up so easily that's why its difficult to believe in it. But I still have hope...

I would say in a sense it exists considering nearly every relationship I have myself been involved with occurred because I first got to know the person and it eventually developed into something more. Sometimes, yes.. it was only about lust. But other times, there was genuine affection involved.

I think it's cute when two friends fall in love after years of being 'like brother and sister'. Just one day you two wake up and realize there might be something more.. and then it becomes a game of who will act on it first. I think that's the big one.

I'm in love with my lust.


Burning angel wings to dust.

I wish I had your angel tonight.


I do believe that those kinds of relationships and love is still around. It's just been sort of forgotten about since most people assume that relationships these days are solely based on the other person's looks. (And let's face it, just about everyone in anime/manga is beautiful. Almost no physically ugly people exist.) However looks aren't focused on in anime/manga it's more the person and personality. Of course since we all live in the real world where not everyone is the picture of beauty we have in our heads looks factor into the equation of personality a bit. Who's to say that the guy/girl you approach for their looks isn't compatible personality wise with you? Love exists, you just need to keep your eyes open for it. Or perhaps you have it but don't realize it? Maybe that one friend that you've known forever is the one, but you're too busy looking for love that you fail to see the love that's right before you.
