Gave up on True Love ™ myself. Felt it a few times. Fell hard. Totally took me over. I didn’t like the loss of self-control once I snapped back and thought through how I changed.
Now a little piece of me falls in love with everybody I’m in contact with. [usually online but even in real life]. It’s transformed into a deep caring, almost like giving a virtual hug to everybody who clicks a like, or responds in some way. A little “thank you” feeling inside.
It’s not spread thin though. It’s more like raising the baseline of internal love rather than seeking the peaks, and then having to experience the eventual troughs.
Can’t say it’s for everybody but I like who I am, so it works for me smile emoticon
