But what is considered acceptable human behaviour and what is considered stalker-esque, or one very small step away from that line in the sand? Frankly, I don’t know. What I can say is that anytime I have taken risk, real honest to goodness risk when getting to know somebody…it has paid off. Now, the backside of this is that anytime I have taken honest to goodness risk with a past love…it hasn’t. What is considered crazy and what is considered romantic?
I guess the answer may be dependent on who it is, when it is, and how closely you look at people’s actions as true signs of their personality. So, is the guy who texts non-stop 24-hours a day really a nutbar? Or is he simply somebody who hasn’t healed off of his last relationship yet and treats all girls the way he would have treated his ex. Is the guy that keeps writing through thick and thin and says the most supportive things (no matter how much of a bitch you are) a sweet, simple Prince Charming type of guy, or a sadistic SOB who can’t take the stench of desperation off of him? And when is it okay for guys to fight for love…to get up on the table, out in the bleachers, shout it from the rooftops kind of love….and girls to be considered crazy bitches for doing the same?
Love is a funny thing. Risk is a funny thing. Rejection is a funny thing. Some people have more trouble sending back a friendly text than others do proposing on the first night they meet. And who is crazier? What is riskier? Is it true that you only live once and what is meant to be will be? Or does it take effort, risk, a little faith, and a lot of chance.
I just know that coming up with excuses to knock on people’s doors, admitting feelings to a friend, or straight up googling nothing but a first name and the threads of a cock-a-mamy story could be considered crazy. (Crazy like a Fox!) But, on the right day, in the right moment, and with the right person…it could be the best choice you have ever made. Does anybody really know what tomorrow holds or what outcome their actions will have? All I know is sometimes risk pays off and sometimes it doesn’t, but those few times it does…won’t it be worth it?
