Sweet 16, 17, 18, 19, 20?

NEVER been kissed. Never been touched. These are the usual descriptions of people who never in their lives have had a relationship. They are chaste, inexperienced and innocent. Or at least that’s what my concept is about people who belong to such club. (The No Boyfriend since Birth Club, that is.) While some people take pride in being part of such prestigious and renowned club (everybody once in their lives were members of it too), some however just feel like it’s a taboo to be in such position especially when you reach an older age. The more years you gain, the drive to find someone increases too.

In a world made up of love seats and everything almost made for two, hey it’s a couple world, being single is synonymous with being desperate, ugly, picky etc. It’s no wonder most people hurry up in terms of their love lives. It’s as if the 4 o’clock train of Aphrodite is going to leave any minute from now.
Most people say that for a girl, 18 is the right age to entertain courtship or have a relationship but I don’t think it is still practiced now although I know some “isolated cases” of girls waiting to come of age first before entering into relationships and the like. But let’s face it, nowadays, young people become young parents, in due time our society will be composed of young parents and even younger grandparents for that matter.

But really, I cant seen to understand why most people feel like old maids once they approach a certain age and they still don’t have their special someone. Peer pressure or self-imposed pressure could be pointed out as one of the reasons why some people act desperate and cheap and always on the look-out for “love.” But come to think of it, is there a time bomb about to tick once you reach 20 and you still don’t have anyone with you?

As for me, it’s not a matter of age. You can be young and fall in love really bad. You can be 13 or 30, it doesn’t matter, once Cupid hits you with his arrows, there is no escape. But for people who hurry on love, who enter into a relationship just for the sake of having one. Well then shame on you and pity on your partner. But don’t you think you’re being unfair and selfish? People like you give shame to and destroy the sanctity of love.

Now, you can either be taken or not. You may have your special one right now, good for you but if you don’t have any and still don’t, don’t worry. There’s nothing wrong with you; maybe your time is still about to come. Who knows, God is reserving someone very precious for you. (It could be Brad Pitt or Brandon Boyd!) Just don’t rush things up because you might end up looking pathetic, desperate or worst, you might end up with the wrong guy. Remember, its better to sleep a thousand years and be woke through the right prince’s kiss rather than stay awake and kiss a thousand frogs. (Aniolga writes for Sun.Star Iloilo)
