Love part 2

We all have high hopes on love and relationships that comes with it. Because of this high hopes which are often brought down, people prefer not to fall in love.
    They often say that love does not exist not because it really does not exist but because its hard to find. Or better still, maybe because its hard to find true love.
Yes! That's it - true love. Its sometimes hard to find two people who have equal love for each other. Its either the boy loves the girl more or the girl loves the boy more.

      But what if the love we so hoped for comes and its not as we expected.
What if you find that love and it happens to be that you are the one who is in love with that person and the person isn't equally in love with you.
What if your family does not accept the person you are in love with.
What if the person you are in a relationship with or in love with is brutal, beats you all the time and apologizes later
What if you hoped for a ric…
