Once upon a time, relationships used to be simple and straightforward. Once upon a time, men and women were honest to each other about their feelings. Once upon a time, there was acceptance and understanding; there was caring and sharing.
Today, relationships are twisted and devious. Today, relationships are just feathers in your cap... the more the merrier... just a means to give a boost to your abnormally inflated ego. Today, there is only deceit and apathy.
Once upon a time, "I love you" meant a "promise"... a promise to always be there for you... a promise to always protect you and stand by you. Today, it's only a bunch of meaningless empty words.
I'm not very good at expressing feelings, but luckily, I found this girl in Bloggersville who is! And in her post "The Women who give the good ones a bad name", she says exactly what I would have said if I had been capable of putting my emotions into words.

Never say "I Love You" if you don't.
Seven years ago, I said the above to someone... and today, I repeat this... for anybody who might be reading this post.

Once upon a time, there was commitment and fidelity.
I wish I was born during that time!
P.S. - By "relationships", in this particular post, I don't mean any platonic relationships -- parent-child, siblings, friends, etc. I don't even mean casual sex partners. I'm only talking about "proper relationships" between man & woman (Or even man-man or woman-woman; I'm not biased against them you see!)... that start with a formal "proposal" and consist of some serious courtship, extending over a considerable period of time.
