Have you fallen in love with a dreamer?

Whenever I tell myself I am a dreamer, these lines from the song of Kenny Rogers always resonated to my ears: Don't fall in love with a dreamer 'cause he'll always take you in Just when you think you've really changed him He'll leave you again Don't fall in love with a dreamer 'Cause he'll break you every time I don't know how true this one is for me. I am a dreamer and I want to settle abroad someday. It is the reason I did not entertain Filipino suitors because I do not want anyone to force me make a family and eventually hinders me from going abroad. I have a dream that I wanted to fulfill and once I got that dream, no one can take it away from me. Have you ever fallen in love with a dreamer?

Where do you want to? And I've never been in love with a dreamer.

I just want to travel to different places and experience a different culture. I would love to learn as many languages as I can. I think my boyfriend is a dreamer too.

I am a dreamer. But I haven't met too many other ones to fall in love with. When I thought of my response I also thought of a song: "I am a dreamer... Hidden power... My world is made of dreams, love and worries. But there are still things lying hidden that I can't even imagine Facing the sky, like all the different trees, I'm gazing right at you. I want to find my dream... I want to make it come true... There is nothing that I can't overcome if I only believe. Just like singing, just like miracles, "feelings" can change everything! Without a doubt... Without a doubt... It's almost surprising!" -some translated lyrics from 'I am a Dreamer', third opening of Card Captor Sakura

This topic comes out as I checked my e-mail this morning. He mentioned that his love of travel ruin his love life. That he cannot find a real love on the road because he always leave the woman behind in exchange for his dream.

I hope you achieve your dream of going abroad. But maybe someone will steal your heart first. :)

@JudyEv Thank you so much. Yes, there is already someone who stole my heart. He is not a Filipino though.

There's nothing wrong with you being a dreamer. You are an ambitious person full of determination and that's good!

@toniganzon Thank you. I was talking to a colleague before and I told her that I am really an ambitious person. She said there is nothing wrong being ambitious too.

I am a dreamer too, but not like the one in the song.

@TRBRocks420 Will you not exchange someone you love over your dreams? Sometimes I do ask myself about it. It seems my dream is more powerful than the person I love.

I am not sure, but I think everyone is a dreamer, it's just that some are trying to pursue their dreams and make the dreams come true, some just keep dreaming but not putting any efforts or taking any actions. I always think it's good to have dreams. You may even find someone who share the similar dream with you, and settle abroad with you someday? May your dreams come true!

@kaka135 Yes, thank you so much. My boyfriend shares the same dream with me. I think it is one of the reasons we are doing fine in our relationship. Unlike other men, I can still feel freedom because he lets me do the things I love to do.
