I used to - until I got hurt. My mom always tells me that before I enter a relationship and really fall in love, I should be ready and prepared. I should be able to trust myself to handle the circumstances yet to come. Don't get me wrong, I like falling in love. Or falling infatuated. OR whatever that's called (haha..). I like the feeling because it elevates me into a complete bliss... But I don't like getting hurt. It's not much fun. How can I trust myself to fall in love again after getting broken-hearted? How do you trust yourself to fall in love again after getting hurt?

Mother really knows best! I really admire your mother because she is totally right. Before you engage in a serious relationship, you should be prepared and ready to yourself. It is nice that you have already finished your studies and that you already have a nice and stable job before entering in a relationship because this would really help to you in the long run of your life. If you are not prepared enough, this may actually broke all your dreams, thus making you only depressed. To your questions, yes!.. we can still be able to trust ourselves to fall inlove again, even though we were already hurt before. If we have a mistake before, we can correct it at the present time because when we commit mistake, we learn from it, and when we learn from it, we correct and fix it. So there is no reason for you to worry about. Don't be intimidated by the fact of hurting again. Think about the positive ones. You should be optimistic because this will help you face all your trials in life and, of course, that would not be possible without the guidance of the Lord. Hope this would help to you in any way! Have a nice day and God speed!

if you don't know how to feel the pain then you don't know what love really is...

in my opinion, love is the greatest thing a man can ever have. it is life in the real sense. when i feel like falling in love, i think of course and contemplate. but most of the time, love comes so swift.

who ever said that being in pain is fun and good?... but dee, before you decide to be invovle with somebody you should always be ready to feel pain because no matter how ready and strong you are when you love and get hurt it can always make you fall down on your knees... the best thing you can do is when you break down and fall always learn how to stand up! =)

i don't know... it's hard to fall in love or even get infatuated... it's all good at first but the next thing after that is all the pain you have to go through... well, it's realy quite an adverture there if you like falling in love a lot... it's actually up to you to decide for yourself to comtinue being like that... maybe, you'll just have to be ready for the pain that might come in the process in order for you to be able to trust love again... (n_n) well, good luck!

I think it is all about love. I think after we get hurt then I think we will fall in more deeper love. If we first be prepare of getting hurt then in my point of view we will never be able to fall in true love. If we keep on thinking and preparing ourselves for the hurt we are getting then in my point of view we will never be able to trust as well as love out partner.
