In this episode Fitz(the pres) says to Olivia(the mistress):
"This past year I have learned only one thing. That I cannot exist without you. That I cannot breathe without you. The man I am without you...I'm nothing. I'm nothing and you are everything and I need you to give me another chance. I demand another chance. We're worth another chance."
Take out the dramatics and the fact that its a cheating husband and his mistress and tell me that does not make you swoon just a bit?! It made me do that seriously girly sigh thing.
Anywhoodles...I went on to express my appreciation for their on/off relationship and it sparked a whole discussion of what love is.
She sent me this:
My sister sent me this:
"Someone that makes you nervous but excited, scared but safe, dangerous but secure."
Ever since she found the man of her dreams she has gotten too damn smart.
I can tell you this I feel as though love for me has to be a gut wrenching thing. It doesn't have to be devastating but it has to make me feel like I can't be without that person, like my life is incomplete if they are not there because otherwise its a comfortable thing that I can give or take, go without and be fine even if I am sad. I'm a dramatic person, I wear my heart on my sleeve and if you know me then you know how I am in general. I can't have something simple and easy...simple and easy make me feel anxious and twitchy. I know that after a certain amount of time honeymoon feelings go away but that's when the feeling like your life is incomplete without them should come in. When you choose to love that person everyday even when they sometimes make you not want to.
So that's my bit of a take on what love is or what an ideal love is to me.
What is your ideal love? What does love mean to you??
