If he was truly a terrorist would the world leaders really come together on this scale?
I met that kind of man that, for whatever reason, has a powerful impression on you. The kind of man that, although you do not understand why, you feel emotionally connected and a deep sense of longing which you cannot explain or understand. The man that you imagine cuddling long into the night, who, once he has left, forces you to substitute him with your pillow.
But this man has a serious affliction, a problem, a set addiction that he has indulged for years. His habit is online dating, swapping pics, etc. This comes on the advise of several of his closest friends and his very own confession. So what do I do? Do I desert this man that makes me smile every time he shows me his face? Do I cast away instinct and the confident belief that he would make me happy. How can I let this go, when every part of me is screaming to hold on?
Perhaps somethings are worth being hurt over, worth shouting out to say "yeah this guy hurt me, but I wouldn't take it back for the world." He could sleep with anyone, he could abuse my trust, and I would still care for him so much, I would still forgive. Can this be love?
