[EDIT]My girlfriend and I are no longer a couple. We decided that it just wasn't working for us, and we're now back to being friends. I'm leaving this here though, because she IS awesome, and she DID help me a lot.
I have been called cynical and bitter about love by some people. I liked to think I was being realistic. After all, outside of films, I hadn't met any example of people happily in love. So it was logical to reject the whole thing as a loss of time.
(the arguments I've had with myself to determine my feelings toward a certain person, you wouldn't believe...v_v )
It's still worth trying.
I'm lucky as hell, so why not.
