Personally, I believe that there is an unconditional love that people have the ability of attaining from others, but it's hard. It's more of a family love and less of a romantic love. I have to admit that romantic love is a pathetic disguise for lust and very conditional feelings. But this other love, this family love, when it's done right...it's kind of perfect. So, yeah...that's what I think. Of course, almost everyone I know calls me idealistic, so...yeah. Nice story. The formatting is a little off in the beginning, but it isn't bad. :)

Wow... that was some of the most inteligent writing I have seen yet on fictionpress. Seroiusly, you have such a talent for expressing yourself through words. There are some lines in her ethat make me think that maybe there is hope for writing in general, despite all the cliche fantasy and teenage drama that makes up most of it. If that made any sense at all. I think I shall have to put you on my favorite authors list now... Only things I saw in the way of criticism was a few typing errors (most quote marks where they shouldnt be), can't give you more cc than that...
Please don't think that's all I was thinking about when I read this (your writing stylke, I mean), because the content got to me too. I love how you phrased the question- and it is so true. In a sense. I think, however, I fully intend to do everything in my power to disprove your theory, or (more likely) die trying.

Very good, I enjoy the cynical twist to your thoughts. You sound, in essence, much like me. Although I remain forever a bit optimistic, and hope that maybe love isn't just a hallucination. But, that is me. Find something that makes you happy and go with it, even if it takes years.

Woah, woah, woah
Love is the equivalent of Lust? Damn, gurl, you are honest! How awfully cynical of you. But as they say, 'admitting the problem is the first step to recovery".
Now I can not be the judge of all teenager kind but most of us teenagers don't know genuine love.
Here's a news flash for you: Many of we teenagers are EXTREMLY superficial creatures who wouldn't know love if it slithered out of their navals and bit them in the ass. Sorry, but most of us are just too screwed over hormones (and thus driven into lust instead of true love) to find any real, personal/ intimate relations with the dude we blow to keep from leaving us.
Aside from that, there are those people (like urself) who recognize the shallow 'facade' of "teeneage love" and who reject the entire concept. There is love out there, gurl. It may be hard to find it when everyone around you shackles you down in varying degrees of social conformity. But sooner or later (probably in Colledge), you will find true love.
With Peace and respect,

O! This sorta reminds me of this one book I once read called "Fat Chance!". It was a great book! You oughta go read it. Okay, so it's not all that much like the book, but it /does/ remind me of it. Anyways. . . -_- it's getting to late and I seem to have had too much sugar. . . I /realy/ should scoot off to bed now. . .

I agree completely. Food or love has long been the question on my mind as well. So long have I had it in my mind that I need to lose weight if I ever wanted love.. and I lost a lot of weight.. then I found love and lost that as well, and after that I lost more weight just as a result.. then I gave up on love and gained almost all that weight back. *laughs* I don't know. It's messed up. I'm not making sense. But, despite all that, I do believe that love exists.. and that there is someone for everyone... except maybe me. I don't believe in the mushy, everything-is-perfect-once-you-find-love deal.. but I do believe in love. And even though I KNOW it matters to most what is on the outside, only the ones who don't care about what's on the outside should be the ones that matter. hopefully this made sense.

This made me think. I often wondered if with love, there had to be lust. Or was loce just lust. One thing I have tosay is that I don't believe lust has much to do with weight. And a fat person isn't clasified by society as a cirtain wieght or above. Some people think fat is a size 10 or above, and others think it's size 20 or above. Some classify it by weight. Some have a lot of muscle, and that makes them weigh more, so they think they are fat.
I think confedence helps you get guys. It's normally the ones that "think they are good" or "think they are pretty," even when they are not, that have the boyfriends. I have been going out with my boyfriend for over a year now, and I am definatly not pretty. I don't think so. My classmates don't think so. I'm one of those nerds. (There is a pic of me on my homepage ... trust me, what kinda guy would go out with a freak holding a human brain.).
Oh and, beauty is in they eye of the beholder. That's why heaps of people are happily married :)
It was really intresting to read what you wrote. Write us some more :):)

*smile* Please excuse me if you think this is a strange/rude comment but somehow your story/biography/thing filled me with joy.
...So much kindness was expressed in such a short time. I don't think your as jaded as you think...
Everything you said seemed to be for the benefit of the reader. Even though you claimed this was an outlet for your jaded opinions it seemed really noble.
Maybe you don't want to hear this but bravo anyways. *claps*

I love the way you manage to make this so unbelievable and out there and yet so gritty and realistic too. Actually, I've known many people like this...
