"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
that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these
defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that 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 real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love."

Read this post accidentally in Fish's blog..quite meaningful..
This is the truth. This is the reality.
I just get to know that most of my colleagues married already,
and, the immediate reaction is---shocked!!
Sometimes, I wonder, why some ppl can get their right one so fast?
Why some can't?
How to get the right one in a short time and be together happily ever after?
Is the fairy tale can just be the tale??
Someone knows the answer pls provide me~
