You can’t imagine how other people can sacrifice time, money, career etc. in the pursuit of love and relationships. Its not logical, reasonable and against all statistical odds. That person will not only lose everything he/she puts in but will be left emotionally scarred. Only becoming more reluctant to make those sacrifices again. But contrary to this reasonable assumption, they try again and again. Till they either find THAT love/relationship or become fanatical cynics.
But I guess, its one of those things that a third party observer can ever understand. Only when you embark on that illogical, irrational and unreasonable journey can you fully appreciate why we do it.
For me, its faith. Like we have faith that there is a god that loves you unconditionally and who will accept you for all your faults, there is someone out there who will accept YOU with no conditions attached. As we all know having faith is hard with no guarantee that you are right but just that possibility no matter how remote it may be makes the journey worthwhile.
