"She's such a relationship junkie"
"It took her exactly one month to get over him"
"She was never in love with him to start with, falling in love isn't like changing shoes u know"
Is there a certain number of times one is allowed to fall in love and into a relationship before it becomes socially unacceptable?
I would never use the terms "in love" and "socially acceptable" in one sentence if it was up to me, but it was brought to my attention recently that a lot of people strongly believe that love only happens once, that if it does happen more than the one time then it is morally incorrect.. Often referred to as a "fuck up".
From another standpoint, psychologically speaking, there are people who would rather fall in love and have long term relationships over and over again instead of stringing along a series of encounters not because of "the power of love" per se, but because they have a condition known as "relationship addiction" aka "codependence".
Having said that, why do people rush into categorising people and judging them on decisions they make in matters concerning none other but themselves? and more over, since when do we get to dictate the number of times one can or cannot fall in love?
Seriously, if a person is strong enough to gather the pieces after a breakup, and move on.. Why can't people accept it as "strength" rather than the equivalent of "love whoring"!!
And why is it that no matter how good a person is in all the other aspects of life, it gets flung right out the window the second her "relationship CV" is brought up?
(Ofcourse, this is not applicable to men over here, hence the "her"!)
