The Enigmatic Emotion

February is supposed to be the month of love, ever since Valentine's Day became one of the most commercially profitable days for retailers. Cashing in on love, the oft corrupted, oft overrated concept still remains a four-letter word, a convenient excuse, a selfish and possessive concept and in short an enigmatic emotion.

I still have not come close to understanding it. But would like to believe:

1. It springs from the soul.

2. May mean appreciation, not necessarily reciprocation.

3. Its all about respecting the other person.

4. Not demanding or possessive.

5. Does not stifle.

6. Does not want to change the other person.

7. Understanding and adjustment, not compromise.

8. Trust and complete transparency.

9. Lying and hypocrisy completely unacceptable.

10. Pure joy and happiness.

Difficult, idealistic and you may come across the right person pretty late in life. Not a happy situation to be in. Sigh, such is life.
