Happy Fucking Valentine's!

Came across this quote by Neil Gaiman on love... this is perfect for those lonely , bitter hearts out there on this cold cold Valentine's Day:

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up a whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life... You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' or 'how very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love." -Neil Gaiman

Thanks Krass! For being very patient with me...and for always listening =) We are true blue hopeless romantics---hopeless and romantic;P But then we can never be happy unless its the "can't live without each other" and "consuming" kind of love we find for ourselves...can we settle for less???
