What did you think love felt like as a child?

Perhaps, it was a warm feeling that bubbles up from your insides.  Your lips are forced upwards into a smile and those bubbles stay in the depths of your mind.

That was what I always believed love to be.

I’ve never experienced that.

In fact, now that I am an adult, I have to say that I am not quite sure if I do believe in the love I once did.

It isn’t that I’ve had a terrible experience or that my parents are divorced.  No, I came from a loving family.

I have had romantic experiences in the past, but I’ve always looked at them as if they were something that would eventually break or that I would eventually learn to love them.

It isn’t something that comes easy to me.

It may be that I’m hard to love, but I sincerely doubt that.  I’m just waiting.
