Is there something called true love?

Published: Nov 08, 2012, 07:43 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, I've been in and out of so many relationships that I've given up on love. I don't know why we think that we can be in love.

I think there’s no such thing as true love in this world. My first girlfriend was from school who thought I was a jerk and the story has remained pretty much the same since then. All the girls with whom I was involved during my college days maintained that I’ll never experience true love. I recently broke up with someone from our office. We were about to get married in a few months time. I am 26.

Dear Dhanush,
First of all you are 26 so why this tearing hurry to get hooked? The problem is that you get into a relationship as fast as you get out of it. If you believe that people find love out of sheer luck, it’s a roundabout way of telling yourself that not only are you an unlucky person, but that it’s out of your hands! What you term as love in your student days may just be an infatuation. And there is a difference between being in love and being infatuated by someone. Just let things be, you can’t go around looking for love, remember love happens.
