Does love make the world go round? Hmmm....

It's my girlfriend's birthday today and we're about a few thousand miles apart! She's in london and I'm in Kuwait. Doesn't that suck? Well, maybe not for you guys reading this post but for the two of us it really does!

So what do people dating long distance do when their birthdays come close and they're nowhere near each other? They talk on the phone, send flowers via the internet, they send about a thousand racy, sensuous text messages and hope this will do the trick until they meet next. In my case I'll be meeting my belle in just under 10 days so holding my excitement (among other thing) might be a good thing to do!

But what boggles the mind is that after about half a dozen failed relationships (and a few visits to hooters in Chicago whenever I got a hance to) I've managed to find a girl who totally understands how quirky I can get when my food doesn't taste right or when my house is a mess. But on a more serious note, she's one of the few people who can stand my sarcasm (other people just appreciate the wit and get offended with the sarcasm) apart from my close friends. We've been together for over a year now and that in itself is a record (for me of course)

Aahhhh love! don't know if it really makes the world go round as some people say but it sure makes me get a nice feeling all over! (I'd go on but I am very serious about this girl (her name is Eva btw) so I'll stop here.

So for those of you in love, good for you. For those of you still trying to find love........you desperately need to go out there and get some! (love I mean). And maybe if it's long distance, one of you can tell me how you're supposed to get by occasions like birthdays and anniversaries.

Oh trust me we had a blast! We went to Dubai btw, it's a little more interesting than Kuwait if you ask me. (I say this inspite of my previous post about Kuwait having more of a soul than Dubai). She's back in the UK now but only for a few months.

Yippiieee...!!!!

barry barry barry... its so good to see you talk about Eva like this. I am glad you have found true love at last (read after the millions of failed attempts!)...Kudos to you... wishing you both the best always...

Thanks Nita! Yep, it's true. don't want to brag about this now......I suppose Eva will see this post soon enough! ;-)

BTW, what's with the hyperbole (a million failed relationships????) In my original post I said half a dozen. You trying to make me look bad? ;-) Just kidding babes!!!

I don't know if love makes the world go round for sure but it leaves a sour taste in your mouth if you get screwed for sure!Call me negative but i've been screwed over too many times to believe that true love really exists.I peronsally think its infatuation that in most cases turns to love.Uno, maybe one day like you (after a million failed relationships) i too will find love.In the meanwhile it's dubai and amsterdam for me!
