Anti-Ringgit made a comment in my Chemistry blog. He said "how do you know when there is chemistry when one has not give it a chance? Chemistry can happened at a certain moment. Chemistry is not love at first sight! When you are younger, chemistry is priority, however when you grow older, desperations took over chemistry."
I anticipated this type of comment when I wrote that blog. I have a nicely formed passage in my mind to answer comments like those. I never get to do it and I have forgotten what I wanted to say. Until today, that is, when I read odissi's blog which happened to link another person's interesting blog.
One excerpt from the entry which I find meaningful (I doubt I can ever form sentences like that):
"Ask yourself - are you living? Or are you *enduring* your life? If you are merely enduring your life, isn't that hard enough without having to put up with pleasing another person? When was the last time someone make you glow? When was the last time you're with someone and you want to kiss their lips every time they utter a syllable?"
So Mr Anti-Ringgit, it's not desperation but the fact that I am enduring my current life and that it is already hard enough. I agree with you that chemistry do not form at first sight. It has to be nutured through getting to know each other in a few 1-1 dates. I am not saying that I didn't go for any 1-1s. I did. It's just that after those 1-1, we found that we didn't click and so we went our own way lor.
As for desperation, nah.. some people may be desperate.. I am not :P Let's take it slow and easy, eh?
