Love & Single Awareness Day

Queer Dirty Laundry's post on "What is L.O.V.E. got me thinking about Single Awareness Day tomorrow.  (Sorry, for those of you in relationships it's Valentine's Day)

Readers of my blog have read plenty about my trials and tribulations in the love department.  Finding love seems like a monumental task at times . . . keeping it seems impossible!

I do believe in love and certainly hope I fall in love again (and fucking keep him!  Bitch is getting tied to the bed, sorry, I digress)  We all know it can be great one day and shitty the next. 

I get frustrated when people confuse love with lust, desire and sex.  Love is more than sex.  Sex is one of the instruments to help keep your loving moving a long.  And when in love you've got to be willing to put up with the good, bad and the ugly.  Guess that's why I haven't been Love's champion over the past 14 months . . . I don't have the patience for dealing with the bad and the ugly.

One of my favorite quotes from the movie Juno sums it up perfectly:

"In my opinion, the best thing you can do is to find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you. The right person will still think that the sun shines out of your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with."-Juno
Your homework for tomorrow if you're in love - remember why it is you fell in love with him/her, why you want to stay with them, and what you're going to do between now and February 14, 2013 not to fuck it up!  After all, us single folk need someone to vicariously live through. :-)
