It’s a funny thing, the more you travel, the more you see and the more you experience, the more you realise what you have been missing out. It’s not easy to put this in words but let me see what I can do.
When you travel, you realise the many types of people (men) out there; the different nationalities and the different relationship-cultural-norms. I wouldn’t say that I have travelled extensively because there are so many places I’ve yet to place my footprints, but I have experienced at least something.
And once I realised what’s out there, I never want anything less.
That’s the greedy part of me, where I want the best of everything. There are so many things I love about all the international friends I have. I no longer take notice for some types of men. It’s quite sad, but that’s just life.
The point I want to bring across is that once you see more, you will never settle for anything less. I love the openness, the cultural differences, the interesting stories and the exciting unknown to be known. I don’t think I can find love in Singapore, or rather, I don’t think I can find a Singaporean lover. None has made my heart skip a beat. Maybe it’s too early to say this but I have a feeling the love of my life is somewhere, out there, perhaps far far away.
There is nothing more interesting than seeing a couple of different races. I’ve also have so many friends who are in a relationship with someone from perhaps the other side of the world. I love that. It makes me happy; it makes me smile a lot. Just the thought of finding the love of your life despite oceans apart, language differences, or just the super low probability of meeting.
Yet people found each other despite all the obstacles. I’m in love that. I’m in love with the idea that the universe brings people together, despite all the difficulties. It seems almost impossible to meet the love of your life in a crowded or little city, yet against all odds, people manage to find each other. It’s such miracles that made me believe in the universe.
Well, the downside of international love is long distance. The universe has the power to bring 2 unrelated people together in a sea of 7 billion people and it definitely has the power to pull them apart. But it is also such a beautiful misery, to find someone that is almost impossible to find and then continue to love them, hoping they love you back the same.
The more you travel, the more you know what kind of men (or women) you want/are looking for. I can’t wait to meet the next person that makes my heart flutter. You can’t anticipate such events, but I hope the next person that sets my heart crazy is awesome and that he appears soon. I miss loving someone crazily and being loved back the same. Also, the endless talks on the different stories and everything under the sun.
I hope you find the love you want. Never settle for anything less than what you want.
