Even the most independent people want someone to love. In the end, I believe it's what we all want. What about just love for the summer-time though?
I've had my fair share of summer loves. I never planned for them to be just for the summer, but in the back of my mind I guess I knew they would all come to an end when the seasons started to change. I was thinking though, how nice it would be just to have a summer love and enjoy the magic that the hot season brings. To enjoy the starry nights where you stay out until 3 am and to fall asleep in the sun at the beach. What if you planned to have just a summer-love? Would it be heart-breaking? Could you enjoy all the little moments knowing it was soon going to end?
I have never planned to have a love interest just for the summer, but as I am growing older I realize there will soon be a time where I wont stay out all night in the summer with my friends and I wont have that young love anymore. Life is going to be good in the future, but it will be different. I reminisce on the summers that have past and part of me wants to capture that care-free spirit for as long as I can. As I move forward in my life and work towards my goals, I think less about dating. Something about the magical smell of jasmines blooming and salt-water seas makes me want to go back and capture some past summer magic just for a moment.
I don't think I could willingly be with someone I desired, knowing I would have to let them go. I am a tragic person who smiles at the all the feelings heart-break brings, but when I love someone I can't imagine it ever ending. Who is to say my summer-love days are gone? I know though that I am growing up and becoming more serious about my life. Sooner or later, if I haven't already met him, I will meet the person I am going to settle down with. Well, here is to the summer and whatever it may bring...
Would you ever plan to have just a summer love or would that be too hard to do? Have you ever had a summer-love? How did you meet, what happened and, how/why did it end?
