Love to Love You Baby

Way back when around the time that Disco was in and fashion was at its worse, there was a song by Donna Summer. The song was called "Love to Love You Baby." In the song, she moans and moans about loving to love somebody. I listened to this song probably 10 times the other day. I love it. It makes no sense at all, but I still love it. But it got me to thinking. Some people love to be in love. What is it about being in love that makes you want to be in love?

First let me clarify something. A lot of people think that there is no difference between being in love and loving someone. There is a big difference. Love is a state of mind. Being in love is a feeling, almost like an emotion. Emotions can be turned on and of with ease. A state of mind takes a long, long time to change. I still love 2 of my ex boyfriends, but I am no longer in love with them.

But back to the matter at hand. I think that people love being in love because of the way that it makes them feel. I admit, the feeling of being in love with someone is an exciting and invigorating feeling. You feel like you could take on the world by yourself and win. You feel like you could run a marathon and come in first. Being in love just feels damn good.

I love the feeling of being in love, but I watch myself now. I no longer allow myself to fall in love as easily or quickly as I use to. I call that learning lessons. It's not that I have had my feelings heart or heart broken. It's just that I know that you can do some crazy shit when you are in love with someone. I once loaned a dude my car with full knowledge that he didn't have a license. I did it because I was in love. Another time, I had sex with no condom. I did it because I was in love. Another time, I missed Thanksgiving with my family because he asked me to stay with him. I did it because I was in love.

Yes, being in love is a wonderful feeling, but please watch what you are doing when you get there. It could lead you to do some dumb shit. Other than that, just enjoy it while it last.

Being in love the first time is wonderful...the second time is good too....but that third time is the best because you've got wisdom, experience and that "little voice" on your side.
