    In today's Celebrity and cyber age obsessed culture, do you think the quest for romance and love has vanished? I'd like to hear your input on this subject since i'm a deaf man and it's somewhat tough to meet people and even maybe pursue something further than friends.

    Love to hear what y'all have to say about this! icon_biggrin.gif

    Dear Love_game, first of all I extend a warm welcome to you on RJ! I used to wonder and even whined about the lack of love and romance in today's culture, but as I matured I realized that is is up to me and not everyone else what I want in a relationship. I am 46 years old and my appreciation and need to have love and romance in my life have not died nor changed with the same intensity I felt when in my twenties, mainly because I know how good it feels to be loved and be romanced by someone you love. So don't loose hope and please don't get discouraged if in your twenties you don't feel that from people!? just be glad you still have that fired burning within you at such young age.


    Leandro ♥

    It hasn't vanished... it's just gotten more elusive.
    Don't give up.

    I strive to find love every single day of my life. Of course I have not found it yet, but does not mean I give up trying.

    Look, we all have seen movies and read books and heard the stories. We want to have what THOSE people have. Whether it really exists or not, we look for it. Then we look at our parents or people who have been together for so long and still love each other and we know it exists.

    Welcome. It hasn't vanished, and I know from experience. I can't say I know any trick to it, but that I was incredibly lucky to have it find me.

    Welcome to RJ! Love is out there - it may seem so hard to find, but don't give up. I have always been told when you least expect it - then it will find you! It sounds cliche' but I think it is true. Keep your eyes open, a positive attitude and when your heart finds it - embrace it and enjoy! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm sorry I can't be more optimistic, but we've all got a long road ahead of us in the search for real love. It's like having sex. It's a painstaking and arduous task that seems to go on and on forever, and just when you think things are going your way, nothing happens. icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    Im a bit of a romantic myself. Its my opinion, but I think most are truly looking for love, but are challenged to admit it for some reason. Or I find that many hold out as Mr Perfect (the grass is always greener syndrome) is just around the corner. But... who knows?

    For me, yes. Hooking up and dating allot just gets old. Im in no hurry, and will date as I go, but the goal is a LTR, with the romantic notion that that next special guy will be my best friend and partner. Idealisitic? Maybe.. but at this stage in life, Im not looking to fill a void, it just no longer exists.

    Love is definately attainable if you are both physically AND emotionally available. I find that most guys think they are emotionally available and ready for love, but they aren't. And I think most guys can't see the forest for the trees, meaning more likely than not, love is right under their noses if only they would see it for what it is. It will happen love game, just be open and ready for it. icon_wink.gif
