Love Chronic


Nobody loves other person for the qualities that she has, otherwise the honests, nice and nonsmokers would have a line of interested people knocking on their door.
Love isn’t close to do a sum, doesn’t obbey to reason. The true love happens for the empathy, magnetism, for a stellar conjunction.
Nobody loves other person because she is poilte, well dressed and is Caetano’s fan. That’s just reference.
We love for the smell, for the mistery, for the peace the other gives you, or for the torment that causes.
You love that sassy. You wrote a dozen of letters that she didn’t answer, you gave flowers that she let dry.
You like rock and she likes chorinho, you like beach and she hates sun. You hate Christmas and she hates New Year, even hating you both match. So?
So, she has a way of smile that let you paralyzed, her kiss is more addictive than LSD, you love arguing over her and she loves pick you on. This has a name.
You love that jerk, he says he’s coming and doesn’t call, he puts the first rag on he founds in the closet.
He can’t stay a week on the jobs, he is always broke, and is a little womanizer.
He doens’t have the slightest vocation to chaming prince and even so you like him.
When his hands touches the back of your neck, you just melt like butter. He plays harmonica, loves animals and writes poems. Why do you love this guy?
Don’t ask me, you are smart, read books, magazines, newspapers. You like the Coen brothers and Robert Altman’s movies, but you know that a good romantic comedy has its worth too.
You are pretty. Your hair was born to be shaken on a shampoo commercial and your body has all its curves on their place. You are independent, steady job, have a good balance in the bank, you like to travel, music, you’re crazy about computers and your fettucine ao pesto is unbeatable.
You’re always in a good mood, don’t nag all the time and love sex. With a resumé like this, girl, why are you without a love?
Oh, love, that fox. I wish love wouldn’t be a feeling, but a mathematic equation:
ME PRETTY+YOU INTELLIGENT= 2 IN LOVE
It doesn’t work like this...
Love doesn’t requires prior knowledge, even a SPC consult. We love just because of the indefinite things from love.
Honest people exist of millions, there are a lot of generous men and women, good drivers and good parents. It’s raining people like that. But nobody can be the way that the love of your life is! Think about it.
Asking is the more effective way of deserving. It’s the biggest possibility of who needs.
