The concept of love and relationships

Maybe I’ve been single for way to long or I have been traumatized by world around me…
Or I simply don’t understand the entire concept of love and relationships.
But I’m getting sick of the misconceptions and misinterpretations of it all. Seriously, WTF?!!!

I’m sure that by now you are wondering what the hell my own problem is. Have I finally gone insane or am I drunk? Neither. Maybe the first one, but I am perfectly sober. Maybe a little too sober.

Just a few minutes ago I saw the relationship status of a Facebook friend of mine change from “in a relationship” to “single”. And he has been in the relationship for what in my world seems like an eternity. And this isn’t the first time I’ve seen the status change since I’ve known him. Note: all the updates are from one relationship. And I keep asking myself, when are these two really going to officially end this?

Another example is when I also saw the Facebook status of my cousin’s girlfriend change from “in a relationship” to “single” and I was shocked to see that, because my cousin and his girlfriend have also been dating for years. And on family occasions they’ve always been inseparable, so that’s the reason why I was shocked. The next day I hear that they are back together.

I can name many more situations of (close) friends who have been in the same situation and do the same thing. And I think they don’t even see it themselves anymore.

Do I’m starting to ask myself. Does it not matter anymore?
Does every single fight result in a “breakup” nowadays?

And funny thing is when these couples do breakup the praise how much it sucks to be single and run back as fast as they can. But on the other hand when they are back in their beloved relationship they hunger for the next best insignificant reason to end it all again.

As you all know already know by now. I’ve never been in a relationship and it’s not like I don’t want to be in one. It maybe the thing I want mostly at the moment. But it somehow just never happened. And when it seems like it is about to happen, that’s when I couldn’t be more wrong.
Don’t pity me; I’m used to the silence. And I know that it seems that all I write about is how miserable being single is… it really is by the way… but the whole breaking up/getting back together trend is really starting to get to me.
My thoughts on this is that you either end it for once all or you work it out.
But again… maybe it’s just me and maybe I will talk differently when I finally am in a relationship.
After all what do I know, right?

Have the years of solitude simply made me cold?
Is my view of relationships totally distorted?
Am I missing the bigger picture here?
Someone enlighten me please!

And as I finish typing these words and am about to post, I see the relationship status of the ones who sparked this entire blog change again to “in a relationship”.

O… M… F… G… :-/
