To me, love is...
A corgi nose.
To me, love is owning a dog, a lifelong companion. There will never be a human that will love me as unconditionally as Sadie loves me. She doesn't care if I'm skinny or fat, pretty or ugly. She doesn't care what I wear, or how my hair looks. I can leave for 5 seconds or 5 hours, and be greeted with the same excitement and passion. I've never had great luck with relationships. "Love" to me was heartache, tears, pain. That's all I ever saw growing up. I was never someone that needed to be with someone. I'm fine being alone. I never really felt like I could truly love someone, without being scared they would ultimately break my heart. I usually ended relationships before that could ever happen. Then Sadie came into my life. She showed me what love really is. I'm not sure if I will love someone else the way I love her. But I think maybe now it's possible. I would do anything for her. She is my best friend. And she is the definition of love for me.
I found this through Betty's blog and although I strongly dislike Valentine's Day (it's a made up holiday!), I wanted to do this. Because it doesn't have to do with Valentine's Day in my opinion. If you'd like to participate as well, go HERE.
